Whistler Mountain Bike Park
Since opening, the Whistler Mountain Bike Park has led the charge in downhill mountain biking, pushing gravity-fuelled riding to new heights. Entrenched as an instutution in the mountain biking scene, riders from all around the world make the pilgrimage to Whistler Mountain year after year to worship in the hero dirt.
The Zones: Whistler Bike Park
The Whistler Bike Park is massive, offering over 4,900 vertical feet of lift-serviced trails. The park is separated into four main zones from the alpine to the valley each offering unique trails, natural features and riding experience. You'll need more than a weekend to take it all in, so plan accordingly!
All Levels:The original and still the best, the Fitzsimmons zone runs from the top of the Fitzsimmons Lift to the catch point at Skier’s Plaza right in Whistler Village. Containing trails for all abilities from never-ever to pro plus 5 skills centres, the Fitz is where biking dreams begin. Find famous trails and features like A-Line, B-Line, Dirt Merchant, Canadian Open DH and Crabapple Hits here. Also the site of the Boneyard, constructed new each year for the Red Bull Joyride at Crankworx Whistler.
Advanced/Intermediate Riders: A recent introduction to the Whistler Bike Park, riders can now upload from Creekside Village and connect into the bike park at the Raven’s Nest, with trails allowing riders to exit back out to ‘The Creek’ for another lap (or après at Dusty’s).
The latest chapter in the on-going development of the Whistler Mountain Bike Park begins with the opening of the Creekside Gondola to mountain bikers. Recommended for advanced and expert riders only, the Creekside Gondola provides access to the Fitz and Garbanzo Zones via Expressway, Lower Freight Train, and No Joke.
Advanced/Intermediate Riders: Utilising the Garbanzo Lift to sweep riders another 2, 700 vertical feet above the Fitz Zone, Garbanzo has been called ‘the big brother of Fitz’. It demands more of a rider with steeper, higher and technical terrain. Ranging from the progressive jump and flow of Blue Velvet to the rooty, rocky gnar of Goat’s Gully and the higher farther jump trail of Freight Train, this zone has your high level riders coming back year after year.
Advanced: Requiring an extra ticket and an extra lift, the Peak Zone is a must-ride zone with a potential descent of 5, 0000 vertical feet from the top of Whistler Peak, with high alpine riding and exceptional views par for the course. The Top of the World Trail has been carefully crafted through the sensitive alpine environment and rider numbers are limited per day and by weather and snow melt – make the most of the opening dates and prepare for a long ride with some of the best views you have ever had.
