Whistler Alpine Riding

After putting MANY days of skiing on these snowy slopes, we felt it was time to take an opportunity to see the real terrain we ski on. We could have hiked, but why hike when we could take our bikes! Mike Johnstone was our trusted guide for our Alpine Tour. The views were not dissapointing.

Warning – Lots of pics!

The Roundhouse

We shuttled to the top of the Peak!

View looking towards Frontier Pass and Black Tusk from the Peak.

View down Whistler Bowl to West Bowl and Whistler Village beyond.

Heading down Hwy 86. This is NOT steep on skis… how things change when you’re on a bike!

Time for a second run! Back up the Gondola at Mid station, then a push up Pika’s Traverse. This is the intersetion of Pika’s and Harmony Ridge.
