On behalf of the Whistler Offroad Cycling Association board and its members, I’d like to pass on my thanks and gratitude to the Whistler Bike Park for its recent investment in the maintenance of the Khyber's Pass Trail.
The new Top of The World trail has made both Khyber's Pass and Ride Don't Slide much more accessible and they experienced significantly more traffic than in previous years. While working on Tunnel Vision last month I was amazed at the number of full face helmets and DH bikes coming out of Khyber's. The obvious increase in traffic has had an increased impact on the trails, so we are very pleased to see the Bike Park take a leading role in the upkeep of these trails.
I was able to witness your trail maintenance team, Tim and Dave, at work; they are doing some excellent armouring in just the right places, so this trail remains one of the epic descents in the valley. After a winter of snow compaction it will be ready for some fun next summer.
Thanks again and keep up the great work on these important trails for Whistler.
