I went with my family, we were 8. We are all comfortable riding bikes, and decided to try beginners course mountain biking. I, 26 year old, very athletic, was trying to get used to the sensitive breaks, as we started going down the mountain. there was very little "training," and as we started down the mountain, my nerves kicked in. As I turned right around the mountain, I wanted to slow down and pushed the breaks just a little two hard, causing the bike to stop and my body to keep going. I took the handle bar to my stomach and fell very hard. This company did NOT provide stomach pads for beginners. No joke, I thought I was dying, and it took what seemed like a long time to be rescued from the mountain to the local hospital. I was later transported by ambulance to Vancouver with a ruptured pancreas, operated on, and sent home after two weeks in the hospital. The worst was that as I was sent to the local hospital, the tour guide for my family was ZERO help in guiding them to the hospital. He peaced out, and never asked about me, or try to learn what happened to avoid in the future. In the Whistler hospital, the local doctors said that mountain biker tourists keep them in business! Be cautious!!
