Cheakamus Whistler BC – Business Time
Whistler is world famous for Whistler mountain bike park. Lord of Squirrels and an old goody called Gargamel. Thanks to videos, and trail reviews these trails get the most love. Having lived there for 12 years I knew there was real gold in other areas of town, new gold was business time.
On the last day of my trip a friend of mine showed me a new cut of trail I hadn’t ridden when I was there previously. And since my surgery and diagnosis this would be the first time I had ridden any of the black diamonds in Whistler. I was in for a treat. Long climb, mostly fireroad up to high side, and hihi two blues used to access business time. Both of these blues by themselves are fun, exciting and technical. I could ride these all day. They lead into another access road called high line which puts you at business time.
Business time is a Whistler black with a number of steep roll downs, rock faces and small drop offs. My first run through was blind so I was cautious but I will be back. We forked onto AM/PM to get back to the car. AM/PM, to me, seemed instantly steeper and that steepness was more prolonged. Where Business Time flowed and has steepness to it. AM/PM simply pointed straight down.
End of the vid, I simply laugh and say “oh, *#$* eating grin”. That summarizes this line perfectly.
