Whistler. Has. It. All.
Well, maybe not slickrock, but that should hardly matter! Home to IMBA Epics, a dedicated mountain biking community, and, of course, more terrain and trails than you could possibly ride in a lifetime, there’s so much to ride in this BC town that it’s become a regular stop on any mountain bikers tour. It’s a mecca, if not THE mecca of the sport. The Whistler Mountain Bike Park alone has five zones separate zones, including a pump track. Surely even that’s plenty to keep anyone busy for months on end. What are you waiting for?
The hardest part is picking a trail
Don't worry! There’s no FOMO at Whistler. Everywhere you look, you’ll see a trail to ride! And then another and another...feeling like something epic? There’s Comfortably Numb around the corner. Try the new-ish Lord of the Squirrels or Whistler’s tried and true Alta Lake Technical Tour followed by A Line. Like we said, you cannot lose here. Point your bike in any direction and ride!

Need to know
When is the best time to go?
As we're sure you know, Whistler has a pretty extensive ski season, so the transition to mountain bikes comes at the very beginning of June.
What about bad weather?
Inclement weather can very rarely get in the way of your mountain bike tour, so ask your guide or touring service for more information.
What's a typical tour itinerary?
• Meet up with your group at the designated location
• Check your bike! Make sure everything’s calibrated
• Anywhere from 10 to 40 miles of world class mountain biking!
• On multi-day tours you can count meals, camping and a support truck being covered by your guiding service
• Depending on the group size there may be one or more guides
What about group sizes?
All group sizes have a low guide to guest ratio, so you can rely on having the best time possible. Of course, as the group size increase, the cost decreases, which is a great reason to ride with friends and family!
Vancouver International Airport (YVR) is best. Once there you can rent a car, or book a shuttle service to take you the remaining 85 miles. You can stop and ride at Squamish if you want - it's on the way.
