AM/PM is a short all-mountain/downhill trail located in the south of Whistler. The trail may be accessed via two points. The main access is directly via It’s Business Time; access to AM/PM is found halfway down the trail. It’s not marked, but is an obvious left exiting It’s Business Time. A secondary access point is reached via the Microwave Climb located to rider’s right about 1.1 km up the climb. The second access misses the first 90 m of the AM/PM trail. If you’re looking for a short, yet challenging rip, consider accessing it via the Microwave Climb as suggested. Otherwise, some rider’s find it hard to exit It’s Business Time to jump on to AM/PM once they’re well into their ride. It’s Business Time is that good of a ride and hard to pass on, even if you’ve ridden it before.

Even though AM/PM is accessed via It’s Business Time, the fast, yet technically challenging down is worth checking out if you’re looking for a shorter rip or wanting to finish near the Farside Trail on Eastside Main access road. AM/PM includes several rock drops and log drops along its route. A few hip jumps and tight and steep switchbacks, along with some well bermed corners, will keep most riders honest. This trail is particularly tricky when wet, due to several steep rock faces offering no ride around options. Definitely holds true to its advanced (black) level rating.
