Micro Climate is a relatively new trail – it opened fully in the spring of 2014. Designed by Dave Anderson and Paul Stevens, this trail has become an instant Whistler Classic and one of the best new trails in the Whistler Valley. Near the bottom it traverses across to the bottom of Hey Bud and finishes on the access road.

      Trail has lots of deep holes to start but flows better mid way onward. Hate to see what the race will do to it after…July/30/22

      Fair bit of water in the upper half with lots of decent size puddles. Caution on the climb there is a deep hole on out of the dust that swallows bikes

      Ridden 08/19/18. Loose and poofy. Slippery and a bit blown out. But fun. Would ride again. The EWS pros made it look much easier.
