Whistler Bike Park
Love The Feeling
After you’ve experienced this place, it never leaves you. Do something at the highest volume, and the rest of your life seems like it’s on mute. Do it enough, and all you want is more. It’s not addiction. It’s passion that begets loyalty. Which begets improvement. Which begets love.
Love for the speed. Love for the juice. Love for the feeling of being truly awake.
The Whistler Mountain Bike Park is the number one lift-accessed bike park in the world, and however you get your fix, we 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 your awakening.
Beginning in 1999 with the Fitzsimmons Zone, the Whistler Mountain Bike Park now features four distinct zones with over 80km of trail for you 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.
Need a break from bombing downhill? The world famous Whistler Village lies right at the base of the bike park lifts. You can find everything you need from a quick bite to rider-focused hotels, restaurants, bars, and retail shops. Outside the park, the community of Whistler hosts some of the best cross-country and all-mountain riding you can find.
- Chair lifts: Whistler Mountain Bike Park is divided into four zones, each with different characteristics and types of riding.
- FITZSIMMONS ZONE: The original Bike Park zone with the largest variety of trails and features for every skill level. All riders. Technical, freeride and beginner trails for all abilities.
