I absolutely love this trail. One of my favourites in Whistler. Great features, tough climbs - a real all rounder trail. Have yet to ride it clean but will be proud when I do! Check it out!

For those curious: it takes about 15 minutes to reach the trailhead climbing the microwave access road from the valley trail.

Also, amazing work done recently - just the right mix of polish and grit. Huge thanks to the trail builders.

Awesome new tweaks to the trail, nice work WORCA trail crew! The changes have made riding the trail smoother and faster.

If you've previously ridden this trail and found it a fraction too difficult, it's worth checking it out now.

One of my absolute favourite trails. Cool features, tough uphill sections. Just a really great ride. Have done it several times and will do it many more too!

Trail AM/PM
Warning: if you are one of the many blue-black riders who enjoyed riding this trail (especially in combination with After Hours), you may now want to stay away, as WORCA has decided to remove two ride-arounds on difficult features, leaving the trail's difficulty solidly in the single black category. I am sure that you will still be able to walk around the features on the side of the trail and that riders will create their own organic ride-around braids soon as they continue to ride this trail, but just be warned for now that this beloved trail is apparently no longer meant for you, and that the people who ride the main line need to be prioritized Smile

Don’t be fooled by the green status. This trail is as fun as you make it.

A zippy way to get up to high side etc and a fun flowy one to ride down.

Be mindful and respectful of hikers

This was my first black trail in whistler when I rode it last summer.

Certainly not for the feint of heart but very rewarding for advanced riders with some great viewpoints.

Really Good! Great early season run. Good test of well-rounded ness as DH'ers will want to cry on the uphill portions. But the down makes it all worth it. Something for everyone! I'm not saying anything new except that if you've never seen Flight of the Conchords you should, and the name of this trail will make much more sense!

I love this trail. Everyone has a different opinion as to how difficult it is. I found it challenging but not scary. For some perspective, I race enduro in pro women’s category and I love tech trails. There are a handful of uphills that I wouldn’t miss but all-in-all, the descending portions make the trail super fun. I love the rock rolls.

Essentially two trails in one. A direct line down with huge rowdy drops, and a more mellow (but still black diamond) run that switchbacks around the direct line, with some smaller drops.

I found the first half of this trail up to the AM/PM intersection to be super difficult with tons of climbing and wasn’t really sure if it was worth the climb. But after that? Oooooooh Nelly!!!! So good. Little jumps and drops and rolls and slabs and berms and all the cool things about biking packed into one little descent.

I actually found this trail to be more technically challenging than SCAP, despite being blue rated it felt like a black in spots. Good and challenging for sure with some steep rooty drop offs and tight switchbacks up top leading to flowy fun down lower. Well worth the ride up no matter where you are accessing from.

This is an amazing trail, a must ride for the confident shredders out there. It is challenging for intermediate level riders, first timers can probably expect to do a little pushing in the steep climb sections as momentum is key but dont let that put you off. The downhill flow is epic! I will ride this trail again and again.

I noticed a pretty big safety issue on the trail today WORCA may want to address. There is a stump on the side of the trail pretty close to the bottom that is just waiting patiently to skewer someone. It's right at the end of a pretty fast section and on the outside of a corner. If someone lost control going fast into that corner it could be pretty messy if they landed right on the stump. It's maybe three or for corners up from the bottom of the trail on the left.
