Looking at whistler for my honeymoon
Will not be until May next year - looks likely will be 1st / 2nd week the uplift is open.
The wife to be rides regularly with me, and we are both off to the Alps this summer for a holiday with trail addiction - most of our riding in the UK is trail centres - will do most black features, but nothing too gnarly (gap jumps / doubles) etc
Just wondering if there is stuff there to keep us entertained for a few days ? from the looks / descriptions it looks like we will be OK on the green and blue runs.
Would like to know the following:
1. How many days would you recommend in order to do the majority of the blue and green runs ?
2. What style of bike ? as we have to hire them we have the option of a typical xc/am bike, or a full on downhill rig - obviously we are used to riding a more xc orientated bike - but if it is all lift accessed anyway would a downhill be better / more fun ? or is it a bit overkill for the green / blue runs ?
