Re: Whistler trails 2017 (not the WBP)

Also, I heard of a trail called Sheol in the No Flow Zone. Is that Lower Gargamel? Or that trail after Trial&Error with the rock faces? Or is it something that else?

Re: Whistler trails 2017 (not the WBP)

new trail just appeared on trailforks: Rainbow's End. I've heard of it before. How difficult is it (as a double black) and how the hell do you get up there?

ITM is the climb, and we're recommending that riders only descend LOTS from the top now, instead of going up and down LOTS, as we expect it to be a lot busier with the opening this weekend. For getting to ITM/Flank I've been doing the Lower Sproatt/Ind Waste/Flank option too, a bit more efficient than going up road through Stonebridge, up tot Flank, and then back across and down to ITM.

Hmm. I've always climbed Stonebridge, but Pura Vida, ITM, and LOTS are quite a ways south on the Flank. 

Are you suggesting starting the climb from Alta Lake Road by riding up the gravel road under the power lines, near Nita Lake Drive?

That could work, but if you don't want to do that and don't want to do Darwins, then I suggest Middle Danimal to Industrial Waste. Fun single track climb and not much of a climb up to Pura / LOTS / ITM.

On another note, what is Sirloin? I heard it mentioned recently.
