When the bike park first opened for the season in May there were 151 days of riding and endless summer nights. Now there are only 15 days left before the Whistler Mountain Bike Park closes and summer is officially over. This video portrays the spirit of truly dedicated riders. Whether they are gunning it down gnarly lines or easing their way around berms for the first time, downhill fanatics don't let cooler temperatures and a little rain get in their way. They take advantage of precious laps while they still can, all with a smile on their face and dirt, well, everywhere.

Whistler Mountain Bike Park closes for the season on October 14, 2013.

64 days until winter opening of Whistler Blackcomb.
