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.

NOT SUITABLE FOR WET WEATHER RIDING

Please use into the dust entrance and stay off the FSR old access road. Lots of construction up there. WB will shut down trails if riders use FSR...

More and more rugged every time I ride it. That being said, it's in mint condition after the rain.

 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.
