You may never come down

The Whistler Mountain Bike Park is the number one lift-accessed bike park in the world, and however you get your fix, this place will have something for you. With more than 4,926 vertical feet of lift-serviced, gravity-fed, adrenaline-fueled downhill trails —from easy-cruisin’ greens to expert-only double blacks—you choose how you want to experience it.

Beginning in 1999 with the Fitzsimmons Zone, the Whistler Mountain Bike Park now features four distinct zones with over 80 km (50 mi) of trail to explore. Your dreams will come true in the perfectly formed rhythm of Fitz’s rollers, the deep tangled roots of Garbo’s single track, the volcanic rubble and thinning air of Peak’s Top of the World, and in the new Creek Zone offering a second base to access the park from. From pro-level trails to introductory learning centres, the Whistler Mountain Bike Park is accessible for all rider types.

Skylynx and Epic Rides offer daily, frequent shuttle transportation with storiage for bikes from Vancouver to Whistler as well.
