To better connect Creekside to the
Fitzsimmons and Garbanzo zones, a trail
called Blueberry Bathtub (which was
added last year) will be extended on its
upper end with an addition that reaches
to just below the top of the Creekside
“That is going to continue and parallel
along the Expressway road, and get
people off the road and onto a singletrack
trail,” explains Finestone. The extension
will create a more interesting way to lead
riders back to the top of the Fitzsimmons
chair and bottom of Garbanzo chair.
With many unpredictable factors like
snow melt, weather conditions and
what crews discover beneath the dirt
(like massive granite rocks), it’s tough to
determine exactly when these new trails
will be opened. Whistler Blackcomb
plans to have these developments
finished by the end of the year, but if
things go smoothly riders could get a
taste of something new this summer.
