    Recommendation for 3 days ride around Whistler

    Hello there,
    we are a group of guys from NJ, heading for 5 days riding in Whistler area.
    We are looking to do 3 days of trail riding in the area and 2 days in the bike park.
    We are experienced riders, can ride ~ 5 hours a day with climbing and descents, relatively in good shape.
    I m looking for recommendation for the best trails in the area.
    I would say we have good technical skills as XC/AM riders, but are not FR/DH .
    Thanks in advance.

    Dror

    If you have time either on your way up or on your way back to YVR, check out mount fromme in North Vancouver, specifically Ladies Only. You can also get trail maps for BC on your phone using the trailforks app. Squamish and Whistler Valley also have great trails. Look it up on trailforks.

    You likely want to look at spending one day doing Comfortably Numb, as that is a black diamond cross country trail because of the unrelenting ups and downs and technical nature (but no crazy elevation changes or speed involved). Then check out the blue intermediate trails which are likely going to be surprising in the challenge, these are a blue AM trail not a blue XC trail, so more like black diamond elsewhere. If you somehow find the blue trails dull, you can bump up to the black diamond trails, but those will really be like a double black diamond most anywhere else in the world.
