Whistler Mountain Bike Park
The Whistler Mountain Bike Park is considered the No. 1 lift accessed downhill bike park in the world, offering 4,900 vertical feet of lift-serviced descending trails for thrill seekers of all levels. The world-class Bike Park trail crew is constantly setting new boundaries with its design innovation, including the John Cowan-designed Boneyard Slopestyle course.
During the summer of 2004, the Whistler Mountain Bike Park's vertical tripled with the addition of a network of trails accessed by the Garbanzo Express chair. Riders were treated to 2200 vertical feet of brand new single track trails that fed seamlessly into the 1200' vertical of the existing Park.
The Peak Zone and the new Top of the World alpine trail are the latest additions to the Whistler Mountain Bike Park, expanding the Park's vertical by over 1,000 feet for a total of almost 5,000 feet of riding.
The Top of the World trail is a mind blowing experience which takes the flow that the Whistler Mountain Bike Park is famous for and drops it on the Peak of Whistler Mountain. With some of the world's best riding set against the granite spires of the Coast Range, Top of the World is the pinnacle of alpine riding.
The Air Dome is an 8,400 square foot covered indoor bike training facility with a huge foam pit and wooden ramps. The Air Dome offers jump progression from 2' high jump ramps to 26' Quarter Pipes with options for riders of all abilities. Dirt Jump, Slopestyle, Downhill and BMX bikes are all welcome on the ramps and in the foam pit.
Crankworx at Whistler in August is the premium slopestyle event of the year.
