      FYI FOCF just re built the first couple jumps at the top and it’s very soft. Look before you leap

       Did a blind run and crashed good ripped rotator cuff . this trail is super steep 1200 foot descent the top part and lower are great middle is so rutted out washed out an off camber plus super speep you can’t really stop. Committed is the word of choice. I love the trail but it was to much for me and I’ve ridden alot of dh at whistler and Stevens Pass this one harder then them in the condition it is in I was on my Capra I recommend you take a dh bike up I will be returning for a full run that’s my goal.

       Another great example of trail builders that visited whistler and thought they could make black diamond DH run. They did but because it isn’t maintained constantly it’s pretty much just blown out berms and baby heads. Skip this one and drive further north.

       Amazing trail, although this is my first time here and it rained a lot last week.

      It was in phenomenal shape and is one of the best built trails I’ve ever ridden. No clue what other commenters are complaining about. There’s some really steep spots but it’s a freaking downhill trail, what did you expect? No ruts, berms were rippin, lots of medium doubles. Just a fantastic trail.
