Video – Blue Velvet


This is a glimpse of what happened when we took our youngest son on Blue Velvet in Whistler BC for the first time. This trail is in the Garbanzo Zone of the Whistler Bike Park.

Do you feel like this when you ride? I know I certainly do. Your skill level doesn’t matter. It doesn’t matter how old you are. This is one of the things that brings us all together and makes mountain biking so special.

Blue Velvet Trail Overview – Whistler Bike Park

Blue Velvet is an intermediate rated trail located on the upper part of Whistler Mountain in the Garbonzo zone. This trail is a wide machine build trail that features huge berms, step descents, and fun jumps. Because Blue Velvet includes a combination of long descents (steep in places) and occasional rough loose surfaces you should have some experience before you attempt it.

Why Whistler?

Whistler, BC has become one of our favorite family mountain bike destinations. First, you get world class lift-served riding at the Whistler Bike Park. Second, you can find miles of super fun family friendly trails in the Lost Lake area.  Third, Squamish is less than an hour away!  Check out our Destinations and Trails page for more videos.
