      Whaleback Mountain offers two downhill trials descending roughly 700 vertical ft from the top to bottom. Trails are accessed by a climbing trail at the bottom of Lower Ivory Run. Free Willy/Krill is an advanced/expert trail descending off the front of the mountain. Shamu is an intermediate/beginner trail that descends off the east end of the mountain. Both routes are highly technical with numerous drops, jumps, burms, and rocky/rooty sections.
      Primary Trail Type: All-Mountain & Downhill
