    Heli Biking in Whistler

    My group is planning a Heli drop next summer (2019) for our yearly Whistler trip. The two trails offered are Rainbow Mountain or Mt.Barbour in Pemberton. Can anyone recommend one over the other. Iíve watched most of the videos but as we know most videos flatten the trail out. Thx

    I've done the rainbow drop, it's steep&gnarly, lives up to the double black rating, not particularly long. I'm keen to try the other, sounds like a bit more of an adventure. A friend did both pretty close together last summer and said he preferred Barbour

    I'm very interested in this. Can you share the pricing? Are there no-so-gnarly alternatives?

    Thanks

    Iíve done both and the are totally different rides. Barbour is more of a Endurance and scenic ride, still can be difficult in places. Rainbow is pure Gnarl double black with pro lines. Depends what mood your in I guess.
