Restore 'n Ride with Matt Bolton

Matt Bolton, or as we call him, "Boltz," has had a productive winter season dedicating his spare time to reviving his popular trail, Poacher, located in Squamish, BC.

While Squamish is renowned for its extensive trail network (often leaving locals and visitors spoiled for choice), Matt felt that there was a gap to be filled: an advanced jump line. So in 2019, Matt and his buddy, Tim, took on the mission to change that. 

Their aim was to create a series of jumps that would enhance their overall riding experience and progression of riders in the area, which lead to the creation of "Poacher." This freeride line branches off from East Infection.

After 5 years of abuse and countless rides, it was time to show it some love. Hours turned into days, days into weeks, as Matt and Tim worked tirelessly to shape new life into this beloved trail.

Had to test it for himself - it goes!

As you can see, Poacher is a must-send trail in Squamish, so, stash a beer (or three), grab your favorite (NF) gear, and go experience it for yourself.
