Whistler Blackcomb Mountain Bike Park

Mountain Bike Park Opens For 2007 Season

WHISTLER Canada - May 2007

The adrenaline-fueled Whistler Mountain Bike Park opens May 19. Thanks to 46 feet (1409cm) of snow this season and a current base of 310cm (122 inches) of snow, besides biking, mountain warriors can still board and ski the snow-covered runs of Blackcomb Mountain until June 3.

Also, rippin' chicks can stay tuned for the launch of Women's Wednesdays, which run weekly from 5pm to 8pm. The evening sessions offer lift ticket discounts and free guides to ladies in a fun and supportive environment.

The Triple Play Card is back, offering three days of riding in the Whistler Mountain Bike Park for $109 (US$106) – a $40 savings off regular adult tickets. Riders can save nearly 25per cent off additional days in the park and can go directly to the lift by connecting their Triple Play Card to their credit card. Anyone who purchases a Triple Play Card before May 31 will receive it for $99.

Whistler Mountain Bike Park: Park Particulars:

  • Vertical 1,500 m / 5,000 ft (guided bike tours from the Peak)
  • Vertical 1,175 m / 3,855 ft (unguided from top of the Whistler Village Gondola)
  • 45+ trails total on mountain
  • Over 200 km of lift-serviced, gravity-fed, adrenaline-fueled descending trails, for every level of rider
  • 17% Beginner Terrain - gentle banked cruisers through the Coastal forest
  • 23% Intermediate Terrain - tight and twisty single track
  • 60% Expert Terrain - steep rock faces, gnarly root-strewn lines and drop offs of all descriptions.

Check out the rental shop next to the Gondola, featuring the biggest and best high performance Kona bike fleet in Whistler. Both downhill and valley bike rentals are available. All bikes are serviced daily.

The Whistler Bike Park will be open weekends 9am to 6pm and weekdays 10am to 5pm from May 19 to June 15. Extended Play hours begin June 16, running daily from 10am to 8pm.
