Blue Groomers at Whistler Blackcomb?


Recommended Posts

Haven't been for a while, but there is a run called Rebagliati's Gold (I think) on Blackcomb which is generally well groomed, with a relatively steep and consistent pitch. Actually, there are quite a few runs like this on Blackcomb, although I haven't been to Whistler/Blackcomb for a couple of years now (I only go if I have to), and things may have changed.

The main hazard there is people. I've had RG to myself pretty much, and had a good head of steam on, then it feeds into a "main artery" and suddenly I'm in heavy traffic avoiding the tourists.

Personally, I much prefer Sun Peaks for carving--the Sundance area is mostly blue groomers, and it's generally not as crowded as the rest of the resort (where all the "good" terrain is).

For the overall riding experience, I prefer my local mountains--Red and Whitewater--but neither of these is really all that great for carving (more suited to freeride, glades, etc.). The larger resorts seem to have the grooming thing a bit more down pat.
