Long freeride trail in the Fitzsimmons area of the Bike Park. Rated between Family Cross and Crank it up on Whistler's freeride progression chart, in the top half of the blues. Heavily used flowy, bermy trail. Big air or roll over – your speed will determine which.

Access Info

Starts at the lowest Trail Hub before the village. There are blue and black trails leading to this Hub; Lower B-Line offers more freeride trail at an easier difficulty level. Alternatively, you can join the trail at the bottom of Crank it Up or C-More (both long blue freeride trails).

 Fantastic until the washboard begins 2/3 down. Then it's a 'try to keep your fillings in your teeth"!
