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 singletrack and has taken 17 years to get to where it is at today?

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.
So have you ridden A-Line yet this year? Has change been all that scary? The evolution of A-Line and the trails in the Whistler Mountain Bike Park will never be complete. What changes would you like to see as the evolution continues?
