$15.

This trip to Kelowna was definately an undertaking - Liam and I had been planning this project for 24 hours. We worked really hard to pull out all the stops in this video. We had slo-mo goggle shots; time lapses; pedal flips; outrageous product shots; unloading and loading the bike; walking through the field with your hand in wheat. At the end of the day this trip was all about just getting out and riding with all my friends.

Easy alpine access is one of the great things W/B offers. Nice to see they're making it official for bikes!

The alpine is special. I'd highly recommend everyone take advantage of this!

Its a breathtaking experience, as the photos touch on…

Great shots Mason and Mark! Looks like a pretty fantastic descent to me. A big thanks to the boys who built this trail!

Amazing photos. Looks like an awesome trail.

But there must be some more steep, technical lines for that to be a double black though, no? Based on the pictures, that looks like a high altitude Bobsled trail.:???:

Trail looks kind of exposed… maybe thats the reason?

Exposed but an easy ride, everything is built very well. I agree it should probably only be a single black or blue.

I ride bikes for nsmb.com, chromag, dissent labs, and I like to have fun! http://instagram.com/markymath

The amount of vertical covered probably bumps it up a notch. Looks awesome though… I don't care what classification the trail has, Ima gonna shred it!

I looked at the Peak zone on the WBP map and it's marked as a single black.

Maybe its not so bad being marked as a double. Might keep traffic off it. :D

Maybe its marked as a single black because of all the rocks and that the trails are on the side of the mountain? If you crash is there a chance you could tumble down the hillside and off drops or onto rocks? Kind of hard for me to tell from the pictures but looks like if you have a fall, alot of bad things can happen.
