Description

Blue velvet is the first intermediate trail on the upper part of Whistler Mountain in the Garbonzo area. It could be described as a chilled out version of Crank It Up. It has a number of standout features including; a wooden bridge (which can be gapped), hipped step-ups, juicy flowy sender jumps, a few rock drops and wall rides.

Difficulty

Moderate

Mostly stable trail tread with some variability, with unavoidable obstacles 8in/20cm tall or less. Other obstacles such as rock gullies and steep sections may exist. Ideal for lower intermediate riders.
