Trails Update: May 17, 2019

Yummy Numby 2.0 The trail known as Yummy Numby was first created to access the technical rock slab section of Comfortably Numb (Foreplay). Eventually, “outside the box” thinkers tried turning right at the junction with Foreplay… this became even more popular. I’ve always felt that Yummy Numby was incomplete: The road section followed by the relentless steep and loose doubletrack grunt didn’t mesh with the rest of the experience (forest singletrack). After many walks, rolls of flagging tape and map study, Whistler-Blackcomb approved ... Read more

Trails Update: May 8, 2019

The night before Tuesday 'Twas the night before Tuesday, when all through the house Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse; The flagging was laid in the forest with care, In hopes that keen diggers would soon be there… I lose sleep over this. Seriously. For the first few trail nights, I’m like a child on the night before christmas: Filled with unrelenting anticipation. Will anyone show up? Did I flag enough work if hundreds show? Who’ll build up that rockwall? Will there be ... Read more

Trails Update: May 3, 2019

Danimal South Following a land swap, the RMOW has tasked WORCA with managing the historical singletrack trails in the south end of the “Westside Zone”. These trails include “Piece of Cake”, “Moose Knuckles”, “Butterflies and Flowers”, “THC” and “Danimal south”. We’ve undertaken some upgrades (armouring roots/ holes and berming into the climbs) to upper Danimal south and THC as they will become the ultimate exit from the Sproatt big ride: Mystic>Rocks>Squirrels>Chipmunk>Waste>Danimal>THC. Vollie trail nights It’s time to get (a little) dirty! The first ... Read more

Trails Update: April 25, 2019

Chainsaws and rakes and birds It sounds like spring in the woods. Love is literally in the air… I mean for birds of course. Males are loudly wooing ladybirds and established couples are claiming their turf. There’s a lot of tweeting going on but that chorus is interrupted by the rhythmic scraping of rakes and steady wail of 2-stroke trail clearing machines. Winter’s been blustery and every trail has a fresh coat of treetop trimmings (often, the whole tree). The trail crew ... Read more

Trails Update: April 12, 2019

It looks like summer is melting its way into the Whistler valley and that can only mean that fresh trail reports are on the horizon! Here's the first one of 2019: Plans. This season, the trail crew will revisit some of the harder to get to bike destinations around the valley including Jane lakes and Comfortably Numb. We'll continue upgrading our ageing bridges (Get over it, Kill me Thrill me, Billy Epic) and armouring the most heavily "loved" trails (LOTS, LESS, Howler, Foreplay). Stay ... Read more
