Whistler, BC – Today is the day! Whistler Bike Park officially opens for the 2104 season. Over the last month, Whistler Mountain Bike Park Manager, Brian Finestone has had his army working hard in preparation for opening day. As it goes this time of the year in many corners of the continent, troops of trail builders were rallied and reported for duty.
And as mother nature teases and tortures the crew, the battle against the elements to perfect the trails at the one of the Best Bike Parks in North America has begun. Watch the video as the war on winter unfolds and creates the jumps, berms and trails of Whistler Mountain Bike Park.
This summer the Whistler trail crew will continue to rework more of the mountain’s older trails. “Look forward to the return of some classics like Clown Shoes that have been closed for some time,” Brian Finestone, Whistler Bike Park Manager, tells us. “As always, we will be putting time into the Biker X and Boneyard as well as the Canadian Open Downhill course.”
Check out the video of the evolution from winter to spring and watch as the crew begins the work to create the some of the world's most perfect jumps, berms and trails of Whistler Mountain Bike Park.
