Whistler Bike Park Presents: The Golden Nug

Lap after lap, riders get to know the Bike Park like the back of their hand. But, we’d like to find out who knows it best. Put your trail recall to the test and locate The Golden Nug. It’s simple – drop a pin onto a map of the Bike Park in the exact trail location the Golden Nug was taken.

This is a race of the internet’s finest, as the first person to correctly locate The Golden Nug will win a 2019 Whistler Mountain Bike Park Unlimited Pass, not to mention a lifetime supply of bragging rights. 

Now, this isn’t horseshoes; close does not count. You need to select your location with surgeon-like precision. After all, mountain biking is a precise endeavour. You only get one guess per day, so if at first you don’t succeed, come back in 24 hours and try again. 

If no one is able to successfully find the Nug by May 1 at 11:59 PST, we will bring out our measuring stick and find out who got the closest guess. If there is then a tie, the victory will go to who submitted their guess first. For the full rules, visit the contest website.

What are you waiting for? Go find The Golden Nug.

Can Paul see The Golden Nug from up here in the Garbo Zone?

The Creekside Zone opened up a whole new set of possible Golden Nug locations last season. If it’s in there, we will never tell.

Maybe The Nug is on a flow trail…

Although, it could be on a tech trail. 

Happy hunting. #TheGoldenNug
