The Peak Zone and the new Top of the World alpine trail expand the Whistler Mountain Bike Park vertical by over 1,000 feet for a total of almost 5,000 feet of riding.

The Top of the World trail is a consciousness-expanding experience which takes the flow that the Whistler Mountain Bike Park is famous for and drops it on the Peak of Whistler Mountain. With some of the world’s best riding set against the granite spires of the Coast Range, Top of the World is the apex of alpine riding.

Beginning at the top of the Peak Chair on Whistler Mountain, Top of the World will take you through Whistler’s insane alpine environment on tacky smooth single track filled with built up berms, switchback corners and flowy descents along the way. The trail winds its way down the back side of Whistler Mountain, dipping into areas not even open for skiing in the winter. It bisects HWY 86 and rolls along the Peak to Creek magnum opus ski run before cutting back over to HWY 86 where it joins the Garbanzo bike trails, Freight Train and No Joke at the wall ride tunnel. Open until September 22.
