    Whistler - steeper BMX style jumps?

    I'm headed to Whistler for a few days and am trying to get the lay of the mountain before I go. Are there any locations on the mountain known for having steeper jumps (i.e. BMX/DJ style as opposed to the more common moto style).

    For reference, if anybody has been to Northstar as well, this would be more like the jumps in the two-six jump park (which happen to also be smaller overall) as opposed to the famous jumps on Livewire (which are larger overall but also much less steep).

    From watching YouTube videos it appears there is a small park in the middle of Joyride with a few steeper jumps. Any other pointers are appreciated, thanks!

    There's an awesome jump park in the valley at Fitz Creek outside the park. Not too much for steeo DJ style hits at park. Most are fun floaters

    If you're in vangroovy and looking for DJ, stop by Vanier Park on Whyte Ave.
    They're dialed this year.

    There is a jump park just N of the village along the river isn't there? I have no idea what it's called, but there are always dudes jumping there. It's along the paved bike route, near a big parking lot.

    Yes, that's the one that was mentioned in the first response. It's even on Google Maps! I did go check it out, but the DH bike I was on wasn't really a good fit for it. I was hoping to find steeper jumps in a DH trail... some of the jumps on C-More and A-Line were close to what I was looking for. I'll try to bring a DJ next time for the jump park.
