Crazy Train Map

Crazy Train is a classic Blackcomb lap filled with steep chutes, big rock rolls, and fast fall line riding!


Starting from Base 2 in Blackcomb, you will begin by pedaling up the Blackcomb climb past the entrances to Instant Gratification, Roam in the Loam, and Golden Boner before doing a big switchback up the ski run until you reach out of the Dust. Be prepared for some steep fire road grunting! From here, it is a short technical climb to the top of Crazy Train.

The route begins with a cruxy rock chute from the very top. Watch out for your pedals!!

You will then continue down, making sure to avoid the steep straight-down lines from the original build! These aren't advised unless you brought your rappel kit!!

The route continues through a series of tight chutes and fast traverses in an amazing old-growth forest! About halfway down, you will want to take the left line around the very steep and eroded chute to bring you to a long and very picturesque rock roll (see Route photo). Make sure you trut that front brake! From here, you get a brief break before a final steep chute followed by a technical rock move into a tight corner. Finish blasting out on the loamy singletrack back to the access road!

This was used in the EWS 2018 as a stage. Imagine flying down this in under 5 minutes!



Very steep, difficult, narrow singletrack with widely variable and unpredictable trail conditions. Unavoidable obstacles could be 15in/38cm tall or greater, and unavoidable obstacles with serious consequences are likely to be present. Obstacles could include big rocks, difficult root sections, drops, jumps, sharp switchbacks, and more. Ideal for expert-level riders.
