Last year, Myself, Bowman and Reading took it upon ourselves to bring a classic Whistler trail back into shape.
Tresspasser is a legend of a trail in Whistler. Its steep, rooty and littered with the sketchest rock rolls you can imagine and is completely lap-able from the bike park….if you know how to get to it.
Its an old trail from days before the Garbo lift was open, days when riders used to ride up from the top of Fitz on hardtail’s and bikes with so little suspension you might as well not bother. That’s not to mention the brakes. I can only imagine.
Anyway, Tresspasser was in need of an update. Sections of the trail were not quite up to scratch, having little to no flow and it was very overgrown. We did a fair bit of work on it actually, cutting back a lot of undergrowth and putting in whole new sections of trail to bypass fallen logs and no flow zones. The work was not completed before the Canadian immigration caught up with me , and our tools will still be sat quietly rusting away at the bottom of the new super rock roll.
We actually tried very hard not alter the feel of the trail, nothing of the old trail was destroyed, we just created new alternative lines that make it all flow better, or so we hope.
Have a look at this awesome video that has a bit of Tresspasser in at the 3min mark.
