The Whistler Mountain Bike Park

With over 80 miles (130 kilometers) of trails, the Whistler bike park attracts bike fanatics from all around the world. The park is divided into four zones, each offering a unique terrain and challenge:
• Fitzsimmons Zone: The heart of the park, featuring a variety of trails from easy green runs to technical black diamonds. It's perfect for those looking to get a taste of what Whistler has to offer.
• Garbanzo Zone: This zone is for more advanced riders, offering steep, rugged terrain and longer descents. It’s a test of skill and endurance.
• Creekside Zone: Known for its flowy trails and stunning views, Creekside is a great spot for intermediate riders to push their limits.
• Peak Zone: Accessible via the Peak Chair, this zone takes you to the highest point in the park, offering breathtaking alpine views and challenging trails that make the climb worth it.
Beyond the Bike Park

While the Whistler Mountain Bike Park is what brings the people to Whistler, the area is also surrounded by an extensive network of trails that cater to all types of riders. Lost Lake Park is a good place to start for people who are ready to explore more than the downhill park. For the more experienced rider, the Flank trail is the perfect access point to worldclass backcountry trails, varying from technical Blues to Adrenaline pumping Blacks.


Bike-Friendly Community

Whistler’s biking community is vibrant and welcoming. The town is equipped with top-notch bike shops, rental services, and guiding companies. Local events and races, like the famous Crankworx Festival, bring together riders from around the world to celebrate the sport. Whether you’re looking to join a group ride or seek out tips from the locals, you’ll find a supportive and passionate community.


Best Time to Visit

The prime mountain biking season in Whistler runs from late May to October, with the peak summer months offering the best trail conditions. The weather is generally warm and dry, perfect for long days on the bike. However, shoulder seasons should not be underestimated as a time to visit, with fewer crowds and cooler temperatures.
