PEAK TO CREEK

Backcountry Bike Tours

Access some of Whistler's most iconic trails staring from the top of the Peak Chair set against the granite spires of the Coast Mountain Range. An epic option for advanced and expert riders only. Join us for a trail you will never forget, spectacular views, a hard workout and one of the most exhilarating rides you will ever have. 

Black Diamond Tour


  • TOP OF THE WORLD - technical rocky trail with some steep corners. In the alpine (above treeline).
  • KHYBER - starts at treeline (sub alpine). Technical single track with some roots & rocks.
  • MIDDLE OF NOWHERE - a cross country-style connector trail, with both short climbing and descending sections.
  • KASHMIR - features many short steep descents, with roots & rocks. Includes some short climbing.
  • KUSH - similar to Kashmir.
  • B.C.'S (BOYD'S) - technical rock & root sections (still technical, but not as hard as Kush or Kashmir)

Double Black Diamond Tour


  • TOP OF THE WORLD - technical rocky trail with some steep corners. In the alpine (above treeline).
  • B.C.'S (BOYD'S) - technical rock root sections (still technical, but not as hard as Ride Don't Slide).
  • RIDE DON'T SLIDE - was formerly much steeper and gnarlier, but recent trail work has reduced the over-all difficulty level. Still contains some steep sections with roots, rocks, and other technical features.

RIDING ABILITY


These tours are a stamina tester - riders should be prepared for several hours of riding without being able to stop at a restaurant or store. Participants should expect a 'work out'.

Riders should feel comfortable on Garbanzo trails such as No Joke, Original Sin, and Fatcrobat. New to Whistler Bike Park? Riders should be comfortable on single double black diamond technical mountain bike trails. Advanced/expert skills are required.

 

Riding Ability: Advanced & Expert Riders Only

 

For advanced/expert level riders with the requisite skills, these trails are really fun and make for an amazing and unique biking experience. For riders not comfortable on the trails, it will make for a long day due to the remote location of the trails.

There is no mandatory air (jumps/drops) on any of these trails.

Not to scare potential participants too much - we're just trying to ensure that people aren't getting in over their head.
