High Point

Microclimate achieved notoriety when it was featured in the World Enduro Series event in Whistler back in 2014, the trail, built through a beautiful mature forest, is steep, rough and awesome. The climb up is quite challenging on steep gravel access roads on Blackcomb mountain, in the summer heat it can be a killer. A variation or a great second lap (with slightly less climbing) is to ride Hey Bud, which has recently been re-worked and is arguably slightly easier than Microclimate if you follow the new routing.

Running so good after the rain we had, couple of small boggy sections but nothing to worry about. Fun times.

Top of this trail is getting haggard! Looks like it's seen a lot of early season traffic that's washed a lot of dirt out of the spicier sections. Still rideable but in need of some love.
