Bike Park, Whistler Mountain
Length: 200 km
The Whistler Mountain Bike Park - Downhill mountain biking. Whistler mountain is arguably the world's leader and epicenter of lift-accessed downhill mountain biking. Since the Park's inception the summer of 1999 Whistler Blackcomb has dominated the bike park scene and has defined flow and progression with world famous trails such as A-Line. With over 200 kms of trails spanning 3,855 vertical ft/1,175m including signature machine-built, stunt-infested trails such as Freight Train and Crank It Up, the park satisfies every gravity hog's hunger. All levels of riders can push their own limits in a safe and progressive manner with smooth beginner trails to build confidence leading into a wide variety of intermediate trails featuring manmade and natural stunts. Terrain ranges from gentle trails through Coastal rainforest with smooth banked corners to steep and technical root-strewn turns, with slick rock faces to massive man-made stunts and natural drop-offs. Whistler Blackcomb's rental fleet of Kona's full suspension bikes and highly trained bike guides ensure an unforgettable adventure for anyone that can ride a bike.

In a word - huge. Over 1,200m / 4,800ft
Over 200km of lift-serviced gravity fed, adrenaline fueled descending trails. Something for every level of rider. Gentle, banked cruisers through the Coastal forest. Tight and twisty single track - perfect for intermediate riders. For the armour clad, full face wearing, 50lb. bike group there are steep rock faces, gnarly, root strewn lines, drop offs of all descriptions and more.
3 Skills Centres: each designed for a different ability level.
The green skills centre is built close to the ground for riders just learning to clear obstacles and ride planks.
The blue zone increases the difficulty by raising, narrowing and tightening all of the constructed elements.
The double black skills centre is for expert riders only including a dazzling display of North Shore-style obstacles.
Take it fast, take it slow. Huge banked corners, rhythm sections, table tops, doubles - the closest thing to flying on two wheels.
