Overview

The vertical profile is basically a set of sharks teeth running up and down for maximum vertical gain and loss. Taking place around the ski resort town of Whistler, I'm sure a few people will be hoping the ski lifts will be running to help them up and down these monstrous peaks.

Description

Since this race take place in September, keep your fingers crossed for no rain/clouds/snow. If the sky is clear, amazing views of Black Tusk, Rainbow, Wedge, Whistler, Blackcomb, Garibaldi, Fissile, and Overlord Mountains (among others) will reward your hard work. You'll climb up and down into the alpine, passing glacial lakes and suspension bridges. A ruggedly beautiful mission helped along with 10 aid stations and the best volunteers around.
