Nate Hills Gets Janked in Whistler

Words Nate Hills
Date Dec 11, 2018

Just outside of the Whistler Bike Park boundary, accessed off of Top Of The World, a special type of trail exists. If you make it past the wild gophers, Khyber to Babylon By Bike is a Whistler classic. If you can clean all of the jank, I owe you a cold one.

Marmot. Not a gopher. Babylon By Bike was an overgrown mess earlier this year until it was cleared for an ultra marathon run by the run organizers. Many thanks to them. I rode it in October for the first time. Pretty crazy.

gotta admit though, for a guy who lives in the US, he sure films a lot of cool trails in BC, including odd choices and lesser knowns. he doesn't just go to a top riding destination and high grade every well known. how he funds this much travelling and riding i don't get.

my sarcasm probably didn't come through well...I love the steep gnar tech jank of Babylon, but most people should probably give it a miss because it's the real deal gnar and will hand most people their asses really quickly

Took my wife down it 10 years ago. There was a lot of swearing and bike carrying and I was divorced at least twice before the bottom.
