Fairly snowy for >50% of descent. Ladder and bridges ice'd. Slippery but still fun and ride-able.

Insanely wet (duh). Some puddles 15cm deep, and spanning beyond the trail edges into the undergrowth.

 One of the best longer descents in Whistler. Black tech with rock rolls along the way.

 adamr1 is sooo right. This is truly one of the best trails that is so close to the village. Good climb up that is very much worth the pain.

 One of my favorites in whistler, with my usual way being to ride up yummy Mumby. This route allows for extensions too by riding up to golden door and around the numb loop

 What a way to finish Comfortably Numb! You find out if you have any gas in the tank and if you do, what fun! I love this trail! It's as advertised and I have found it is a good barometer of my progression in fitness (esp. core strength) and skills over the years. First time I did it, I got to this section and thought, you've got to be kidding. Totally kicked my butt but now gets more fun every year for me.
