I love it up here! A line, Dirt Merchant, Devils Club, Crabapple Hits, most of the trails rock. I hit Detroit Rock City for the first time, loved the technical rock stuff. Ho Chi Minh and Fantastic weren't my favorites. It would be nice to see some of the high traffic trails have bricked berms like some of the A Line turns, they get really chewed up and rattly. **I brought a friend who rented a bike and I will say that the prices here are outrageous! $100/day for a bike, $53.50/day for a pass = $153.50/day for him to ride! I know Fanatik isn't paying anymore for their rental bikes than the guys back home, so why are they charging twice as much? In the end, I love Whistler, but it's getting a bit out of hand on the capitalism end of things. I'll think about Kicking Horse or Mammoth next time.

Customer Service

Freight Train, A Line, GLC drop, repeat till tired then head for the trees.

FRBiker   Weekend Warrior [Nov 14, 2004]

We drove 35 hrs to ride here for a week, and it was well worth it. I am an intermediate level rider, but the learning curve at Whistler is steep thanks to great trail design. Much of the Garbonzo expansion was closed due to rain, but the section I did ride were pretty challenging. Ride with a local if you get the chance. I did the first day and doing so "forced" me to try things I may not have otherwise. Most of the things look worse than they really are.

calvincycles   Weekend Warrior [Oct 10, 2003]

Just got back to Adelaide(if you dont know ,look it up!!) from 3 weeks in BC spent 16 days at Whistler. Before I got there I couldn't jump for sh*t but 106 runs of Dirt Mechant-A Line-Hornet- GLC#2 changed all that.The trail building crew really are the best in the planet ( they know their Sh*t!!)& all other staff are really helpful.Anyone hanging out for the ultimate mountain biking vacation would be a fool to go anywhere else(and I've done Mammoth & Moab!!).

KD   [Oct 27, 2001]

This is a world-class and highly addictive downhill ride - arguably, the best downhill biking in North America. A lot of thought has gone into the design of these trails - there is something for everyone, beginner to expert.

From Whistler Village, it's a short gondola trip part-way up the mountain to Olympic Station - launch pad to the "unguided" bike trails; a network of trails which cover the lower chunk of the mountain. The Bike Park trails extend further up the mountain, but to ride those, you must pay extra for a guide. This review covers the lower section of the trail system.

A full-face helmet, full body armor, full suspension bike - perfect! A good hardtail would do fine...disc brakes and basic set of armor suggested.

Many of the bike-trails follow the ski-run routes. These wide trails are often sculpted with sequences of jumps - speed and air!

The single-track trails are generally rooty and rocky - nice berms, jumps and rock-drops. Some steep and challenging sections.

Beginners with basic technical skills can ride a lot of these runs and finish the day with more confidence, skill - and a serious need-for-speed.

A day at Whistler riding the downhill is a ridiculous amount of fun.

My rating? Five big knobbies!
