A-Line. It's the lifeline of the Fitz Zone and heartbeat of the Whistler Mountain Bike Park. It's the trail where mega-trains were born and where more laps go down than anywhere else on earth. It's the original freeride trail that gave birth to a new style of riding and it started a movement in the evolution of modern trail designs. But there is only one A-Line, and it's here.Video by: Goldstein Productions
Team Riders: James McSkimming, Lula Darquier, Peter Matthews, and Trevor Berg
2015 is a major evolutionary year for this iconic trail. A-Line has seen countless evolutions in the past but this year it will see a complete rebuild top-to-bottom which will result in improved jump shapes, clearer sight lines, and better flow. Did you know that the original A-Line trail was a single track and has taken 17 years to get to where it is at today?Trevor Berg on the new 2-pack jumps on upper A-Line. Photo by: Mark Mackay
Changes to what we all know and love can be scary and not always accepted right away. The Whistler Mountain Bike Park Trail Crew are a group of passionate and dedicated riders who are committed to building progressive trails for riders of all levels. A-Line still continues to deliver advanced lines and feature options for expert riders and maintains its place as the progression step to Dirt Merchant and Crabapple Hits.James McSkimming jumping the rock drop feature with Mike Goldstein pushing the limits of running with a RED.
