Added by Isaac Orloff
Whistler, British Columbia features one of the premier locations of gravity focused mountain bike riding. World class trails in arguably the epicenter of modern mountain bike culture.
Whistler mountain features multiple lift accessed riding areas for a wide range of skill levels. From beginner runs such as "EZ does it" all the way up to high speed jump lines "Dirt Merchant" and "A-line" Whistler offers a massive range of terrain to ride for beginners and experts.
Fitzsimmons zone features the densest number of trails of all skill levels. Here you will find beginner trails such as EZ Does it, Crabapple turns, Golden triangle and other Green rated trails.
Once you've warmed up on the greens its time to take it to some Blue level trails. Follow the signage to differentiate between technical and flow style trails in each skill level. Some of the most popular Blue trails are Crank It Up, B-Line, Ninja Cougar and Blue Velvet in the Garbanzo zone.
The Garbanzo zone is located above the Fitzsimmons zone, and features exclusively advanced/expert riding only. Trails in the Garbanzo zone feature extremely high rates of speed with much longer uninterrupted descents. Follow the natural progression chart located on the whistler trail map to work your way up to some of the more technical high speed trails in the Black Diamond skill level. Freight train, No Joke, Original Sin are favorites in the Garbanzo zone.
Whistler Bike park is the perfect place to progress your skills and bring your riding to the next level.
