Gargamel is one of Whistler's iconic gnarly, technical trails that is still very much worth riding.

Expect this ride to take 2-3 hours depending on how many of the trail's tech sections you session.

Medium-sized cedar down at bar height on final climb. Super slick on all green rock due to moss and rain.

Perfect right now, surprisingly dry. Lots of rain to come, however, which will change things.
