The first section is a black/double black, being close to an edge or sharp rocky areas to fall on, make me a little risk adverse. I’d feel better with better pads or maybe some earth or a shrub near by. At the top There are a few steeps with sharp/loose rocks Which make selecting lines-quickly a challenge. My teenage kid walked allot of the top (only because of the risk) but
was rewarded with awesome techy flow rest of the way.

Top bit is maybe double black but not too bad. Top part is also easily walkable. Then it turns into a more flowy tech. If you have the skill take down miss fire to creekside.

Painfully bad berms. Do insomnia instead.

Super flowy, smooth new school downhill with lots of berms. Intermediate rider friendly.

Does anyone know... Is there a way to ride to the Top of the World from the top of Whistler Village Gondola? Peak chair will be closed when I’m there (end of Sept) and I don’t see a trail on the map.

No. Top of the world starts a good 400m above the top of the Gondola. There is no climb. Sorry Frown

I reccomend LOTS if you want an alpine ride, it should still be open.

Unreal. So flowy, smooth, and just amazing; felt like a rollercoaster. If i could have this in my backyard or even just a couple hours away, I’d ride this trail at any available moment.

What’s your suggestion for Top of the World:
Ride it all the way to the top of the Creekside zone, or drop-out of the bikepark into Khyber Pass, Middle of Nowhere, etc.?
I am leaning towards the latter, since I’m riding a trail-,not DH-bike, so I’m not going to be blowing through everything at warp speed anyway. And I like to get out and away from the resort. Does that make sense?

First ever visit to Whistler bike park last weekend, and Earth Circus is the standout most-fun thing on the mountain - and that's saying a lot. My new favourite trail on the planet.

This used to be one of the best trails in Whistler, with lots of incedible new work done in 2015/16 to make it absolutely amazing. Whistler loam and great steep modern flow...

Then they ran the fricken EWS down it in August 2017. Now it's a jangled mess of flour soil and exposed roots/boulders. EWS has moved on and destroyed another Whistler classic. What a waste. Wake up WHISTLER

Beautiful setting, but busy, expensive, in terrible condition, and not particularly interesting or challenging (other than the chunder) riding. Lord of the Squirrels is 10 times the ride.

If you're a rider from BC, is this really a Black run? All of the videos make it look like a blue run at best. Can you confirm? Thanks

lukehumphrey (Sep 12, 2017 at 20:24)
I've ridden a fair amount in BC. Definitely some black-ish spicy steps at the top and a couple here and there. Other than that mostly blue-ish.
Just road it Sunday: www.youtube.com/watch?v=RHWnHcoPehQ

If you are considering riding this and have enough skill and experience you should do it. Worth the extra time. I wish I could've ridden it twice.

Haven't ridden this one before today, but I have to say it's my new favorite Whistler trail. Lots of great recent work but the loam and gnar is all still there.
