    Is 'Top of The World' worth it?

    So friends are thinking we should do the 'Top of the World' trail in Whistler when we're up there the end of this summer

    In fact, I've had a hair up my butt about it for a while and I'm doing all the 'yeah we should go do it it'll be epic' talking. 'Yeah, bring the full face and the DH pads. It'll be awesome'.

    And then I watched this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y8H45JupDfo and like the wee lad who learns that Santa isn't real, my dreams have been crushed.

    Thoughts? Is it worth it? If it sucks, I'll never, ever head the end of it.

    aloha, Oni

    That's a terrible video. Read this and decide for yourself - it was on PB's front page

    Whistler's alpine is the Top of the World by leelau - Pinkbike

    Bear in mind the trail is now 2x the length from the above article as its now completed. Search MTBR and the full trail is depicted on the front page in an article by KRob

    Good job! It's on my list...

    ...for all the reasons Lee mentions (although I'm not a hippie really )... the biggest being I don't get pure alpine riding in that often so I'll happily take the opportunity.

    Most of the jump and drop line gravity stuff at Whistler doesn't interest me nearly as much.

    Ohhhh....thanks for the link. I just read it, good article and the pictures made it look really nice. You're right, it's a different kind of ride.

    And you can hook into Kyber Pass....hummm...

    Aloha,

    Totally worth it, nice to escape the rat race of the lower park for a morning or afternoon.

    The trailheads of Kyber Pass, Babylon by Bike and Ride don't Slide should be gained by pedaling up from the Microwave Road. Sorry for being the trail police!

    BTW.. Top of the World is definitely worth it. The scenery is amazing and riding through snow is sureal in the summer!..
    I'm going to rob banks til I retire or get caught. Either way I'm set for life
