Whistler is known for its fantastic mountain biking. There are hundreds of mountain bike trails throughout the Whistler valley area. There are easy, intermediate and advanced trails, some have a require a more technical approach while others offer an easy ride with forested views and mountain scenery that are stunning.Trails are available to everyone and absolutely FREE!
The Valley Trail
The Valley Trail is Whistler’s 30 km paved pedestrian/bicycle route. It links parks, beaches, neighbourhoods, and playgrounds all to Whistler Village. It’s popular with cyclists, strollers, walkers, dogs, families, and even healthy enviro-friendly commuters.
If you are a beginner (or haven’t been on a bike in a while), The Valley Trail is the perfect place to start. Remember that equipment rental shops in Whistler also rent “cruiser” bikes too. A little more comfortable and cruisey.
The Whistler Mountain Bike Park
From May until October people from all around the world come to experience the world famous Whistler Mountain Bike Park. Some of the features are listed below:
In a word – huge. Over 1,200m / 4,800ft
Trails Over 200km of lift-serviced gravity fed, adrenaline fueled descending trails. Something for every level of rider. Gentle, banked cruisers through the Coastal forest. Tight and twisty single track – perfect for intermediate riders. For the armour clad, full face wearing, 50lb. bike group there are steep rock faces, gnarly, root strewn lines, drop offs of all descriptions and more.
3 Skills Centres: Each designed for a different ability level
The green skills centre is built close to the ground for riders just learning to clear obstacles and ride planks.
