Having the opportunity to experience Canada and the Whistler Mountain Bike Park was a long time dream come true! The level of riding is almost unbelievable and the vibe radiating from everybody is infectious. I'l be reliving this experience in my head for a long long time!

No Joke to Drop in Clinic is an awesome black/double black trail combination running almost 3/4 the length of Whistler's Garbanzo zone. There are two entrances to No Joke - the first via Freight Train & the second just off Blue Velvet. Once on No Joke you in for a technical delight of rough and tumble gnar (thats steep in places) full of rocks, rollers and some pretty special "roller coaster" type ladders that when hit with just enough speed feel incredible. Shortly before the trails end, you have the option to go left into the short but sweet Drop in Clinic for a very steep and long rock roll (a little like the roll on Detroit Rock City) which spits you back out on No Joke shortly before the trail's end. The rock roll looks intimidating, but once you hit it you realize its actually quite manageable and fun - just scope the line first to make sure you hit it in the right spot. If you don't want to hit the double black Drop in Clinic you can simply stay to the right and continue down No Joke down the natural trail line. At the trail's end, you go down a fire road where you have the option of continuing down Freight Train which leads to the top of the Fitz zone or turning left into Duffman which ends about halfway down the Fitz zone by the entrance to Del Bocca Vista.

A central cobblestoned Village pulsing with festivals, events, and sun-drenched patios. Whistler’s pedestrian village is the heart of summer’s action. #OnlyinWhistler
