Blue Velvet lives on the upper part of Whistler Mountain in the Garbonzo zone. It’s like Crank It Up’s younger brother that’s hip, fresh, and more likely to style-out on the slopes. The first true intermediate trail on the upper mountain, Blue Velvet has established itself as one of the longest trails as well, especially, since it swallowed up the section that was once called Black Velvet. Standout features include a wooden bridge that can be gapped, both wood & rock wall-rides, a couple of sizeable rock drops, hipped step-ups, and multiple big-flow senders throughout. - See more at: http://www.worldbikeparks.com/whistler-bike-park/news/top-10-trails-at-whistler-bike-park#sthash.kr2iOfHV.dpuf

 The GPS track on this is incorrect. It should zig zag across Tokum at the top instead of going down the right side.
