The rider voted Best Bike Park is located less than two hours from Vancouver and the US border, offering up some of the best lift-served riding in North America, and quite possibly the world. MTBparks Pass members can now access nearly 60 trails dropping close to 6,000 feet of vertical from Whislter Peak—considered the “Holy Grail” of downhill mountain biking by many—for free.
“The Whistler Mountain Bike Park is excited to join the MTBParks Pass for the 2016 riding season,” said Mike Crowe, brand and marketing manager at Whistler. “It gives members access to a group of bike parks across North America to help give them more opportunity to see what each park offers. The diversity of park riding is incredible and continuously growing and we hope to see new riders in Whistler this summer.”

Comprised of four unique riding zones including the Creekside Zone which opened just last season expanding rideable terrain and offering an additional point of access to the park, and the now famous high-alpine Peak Zone featuring the Top of the World trail, Whistler caters to every style of rider with terrain ranging from massive flow and jump lines to gnarled technical lines of roots and near-vertical slabs of rock.
"We are excited to welcome MTBparks Pass members to the Whistler Bike Park this summer,” said Rob McSkimming, vice president of business development. “Our crews will be starting to get the park prepared for your arrival soon."
Whistler is the first resort in Western Canada to offer a free day on the MTBparks Pass, joining Sugarloaf Bike Park and Blue Mountain in Eastern Canada, and parks across the continental United States.
