Todd gets squirrely out of the park but things are buffing up nicely in the Fitzsimmons Zone.

Get dated up here...

So where is that trail? It looks super sweet. Not long left in Whis and would love to hit it up, cheers.

ha! sorry, there's a reason that there is still moss on that rock face. The point being, there's lots of stuff out there to discover, and sometimes you have to find it for yourself….this trail isn't on any map, never will be, and maybe sees 10 riders a year, think I may keep it that way!

This is one of those pictures that glue me to the screen, at the same time calling me and horrifying me. Wowser.

Sorry Todd, but since I pretty much handed you guys the Green Monstah on a silver platter, it's only fair for me to divulge the location here in open forum. We can't taunt the masses with our greed now can we!?

The Green Monstah is off that new trail starting up by the Crystal Hut on Blackcomb. Yes, it's finished! Ride up the cat road from Base 2 to Crystal Hut. Long uphill grid, I know, but totally worth it. You can probably shuttle it too if your stealth! Anyway, there's a tree behind the hut with three slashes on it, follow the flagging tape from there and you're solid gold all the way to the valley!

Thanks guys. My face did grow red with anger for a bit and I did cry a little, but now all is well. Will have to check it out before I leave. Although can you be trusted, crystal hut is a way to ride up, haha.
