Whistler Downhill - Lower Map

This continues in nature similar to that of the upper. It is a fast technical trail with loose rock, chunky drops and burly rock slabs. The start of this trail is signposted by a large step-down which can be launched (scout first). The following feature is a rowdy double (which can be ridden around) before you hit a few rock rolls which go pretty well with speed. The treed section which follows offers off-cambered tricky rock and root sections before you exit onto the Heart of Darkness.

Difficulty

Extreme

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.
