    Thinking of going to Whistler...

    ...with the wife. Is she gonna kill me for taking her there??? Or are there trails for more (much more) conservative riders? I mean, she wants to go, but having never ridden any "resort" type parks, and I'm affraid it will all be dirt jumps and downhill, which I know she wouldn't like!

    If I were planning a trip with the guys, I wouldn't even ask. But I do want us both to have fun.

    Any insight is appreciated.

    What kind of riding does your wife like?

    That's the key question. Does she ride regularly? Like technical stuff?

    A lot of the valley trails are aggressive XC. I just checked my 2004 Whistler Bike Guide and they have some green rated trails (green being beginner), some blue, more black and double black.

    She likes "flowy" stuff (don't we all), and isn't afraid of technical stuff, as long as it's slow, and not if it's steep. She dosen't mind getting off and walking technical sections that she dosen't feel comfortable with. But, afterall, I wouldn't want her walking her bike on the trails all day!.

    Take her. Plenty of lift access trails she'll love, plus quite a few trails around Whistler away from the lift area. Spent a while there last summer, can't believe I'm not going back again this year...

    Just keep her out of the shops and on the trails that are appropriate and you'll be fine...or hell, let her shop while you go crazy...it's all there.
