You’re going to need some strong forearms to cope with one of Whistler’s gnarliest sections.

As you enter the Garbanzo trail, there’s a fork pointing left to intermediate and right to expert trail. Don’t be fooled into thinking this is going to be a ride in the park.

Tree roots the size of your thigh, giant boulders, huge drops – and that’s just the opening section. If you fancy getting your shoulder popped back into place afterwards, then take the expert trail and hope you don’t live to regret it!
