Golden Boner is an advanced descending trail located on Blackcomb Mountain. The first part of the trail, before it crosses the Blackcomb access road is fun technical descending made up of rock and slab rolls. The remainder of the trail, once you cross the access road, is very loose and sketchy. Combine Golden Boner with Roam In The Loam and Instant Gratification for an exciting descent back down to Horstman Lane (Benchlands).

To access Golden Boner you will have to pedal up the Blackcomb access road for about 30 – 45 min when departing from the base of the mountain. Golden Boner crosses the Blackcomb access road one time near the last switchback before you reach the trailhead. The trailhead is located on the right (west) side of the access road. Golden Boner begins with a few pedal strokes up an incline before dropping down a steep rock roll. More technical riding follows before the trail crosses the road. Once across the access road the route gets steep, loose and sketchy with several tough line choices. About halfway down the descent, there will be an option to veer left or keep right. The right line is smoother and extends your ride by a few metres before popping out onto the access road, across from Roam In The Loam. The left line is rougher, barely used and not much fun. Once you pop out onto the access road, look for the Roam In The Loam trailhead to begin straight ahead – left of Golden Boner.
