Whistler Bike Park opens this weekend

Mountain bike heaven with 16 trails and two skills centres

The world-famous WhistlerMountainBikePark in British Columbia, Canada opens this Saturday, offering 16 trails and two skills centres.

Trails including A-Line, Crank It Up, B-Line, Karate Monkey, Ninja Cougar and Heart of Darkness will be open, with more due to be available soon subject to snow levels.

Indoor practice can be had in the Air Dome, an indoor training hangar full of foam pits, jumps and ramps.

Brian Finestone, WhistlerMountainBikePark manager, says conditions are looking good for a fantastic opening weekend.

“The trails we have ready are in terrific shape for such an early start with more being added to the list every day,” he says. “I can’t remember an opening weekend when trails were in better shape to kick off the season.”
