In most places you would just have a switchback here….. This being Whistler, you have a huge, beautifully bermed turn……and it was like this all the way down!
Diving into the trees introduces us to our friend Mr. Loam….. and, you guessed it, more cool berms.
As we pop back out of the trees we see the fall colors starting to peak out here and there.
A huge effort must’ve gone into building up this rock bridge over this boulder field.
All too soon we’re back in the bike park proper, but the fun doesn’t end as we pick our way down an assortment of rocky, tech trails that canvas the upper mountain in the Garbanzo Zone then on down through the lower mountain trails and back to the base. Taking the whole descent into account I think this TOTW ride gives The Whole Enchilada a run for its money. Not as long mileage wise but total elevation loss has got to be close (Nearly 5000 ft.)
If you get a chance to do Top of the World when you go to Whistler, don’t pass it up. And if you see any of the good folks who are responsible for building this trail be sure and tell them what a great job they did. It truly is one for the ages.
