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.

      Just stay off until there’s significant drying. Extremely wet and the mud is peeling off. To ride it now is to not enjoy it in the future.

      I wouldn’t ride again this year if it doesn’t dry up considerably. This thing will get really worked if it keeps seeing traffic and doesn’t...

       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.

       Pretty beaten up. Would recommend hitting Crazy train or Hey Bud with similar difficulty
