A good mid-entry level loop for Whistler XC trails. A step beyond Lost Lake trails, with lots of easy opportunities to peel out if you're getting tired. A few short but grunty climbs, with moderately easy (for Whistler) descents. The final trail, It's Business Time (aka Duncan's Trail) does get a bit more technical and is rated a black. There's the option to skip out after Hi-Hi and descend down Far Side trail between East Side Main FSR road and the river (a fun, fast and flowy descent). Approx time for this loop would be 1.5 hours, more if you're stopping, less if you're hammering.

Access is interesting as road is a skating rink in places but thin layer of snow, fully ride-able, no trees down

Trees cleared. I got the massive one near the suspension bridge and a medium-sized one halfway up, and someone else got the one near the bottom. The trail has a bunch of packed snow and ice but is generally rideable.

cleared the deadfall posted 2 days ago and then cleared the rest of the trail. A few tiny patches of snow on the N section past AM/PM, but fine to ride. One tree partially blocking the trail (right at the Vail CYA sign) could be pushed aside by 2 or 3 people. Another tree about 30cm thick blocking the trail at the bottom, about 20m up from the valley trail.
