This is one of the best gravity laps you can possibly do in Whistler and is the next best thing you can do in Whistler short of a heli drop. This ride starts in the Bike Park in Whistler, you must purchase both a bike park one lap pass and a Top of the World ticket and when you compare this to the price of a heli drop which gets you similar elevation the cost of addmission for this adventure is a bargan. Be warned that this is a physically and technically challenging ride that can take a long time. The great news is that the ride finishes right at Dusty's Pub in Creekside Village so you can fuel up after your ride. You might want to plan ahead and leave a vehicle in Creekside or you can simply pedal back to Whistler Village which doesn't take too long, but it is a slight climb for about 4km. For a slightly easier variation of the ride you can finish on Big Timber instead of BC's Trail.


Key Trails: Top of the World, Khyber Pass, Middle of Nowhere, Kashmir, Kush, BC's Trail (or Big Timber for a slightly easier variation of the ride).
