My husband will be heading up to Vancouver the first week of October (leaving on a cruise from there). We're wanting to head up a few days early to do some riding - will plan on renting bikes up there. We are good technical riders but really want to hit the more scenic XC trails (as opposed to spending all day riding lifts). We were thinking of renting a place in Squamish, but we really have no idea where a good central location may be to stay, depending on where the good XC trails are. Can anybody offer any advice? Thanks in advance!
