Downhill Mountain Biking in Whistler Creekside
While Lodging Ovations’ three unique properties at Creekside could not be more convenient for world-class skiing – they are also perfectly situated to take advantage of Whistler’s renowned bike park. Some of the best mountain biking trails in BC are literally right at your doorstep. Over 80 kilometres of trails in the park will keep you busy!
In 2015 Whistler Mountain Bike Park first opened up the Creekside Gondola for bike park access. For the 2017 biking season, the Creekside Gondola will be open on June 17th. While the trails that descend to Creekside are for expert and advanced bikers only, the Creekside Gondola gives you convenient access to beginner and intermediate trails in the Fitzsimmons and Garbanzo Zones, via Expressway, Lower Freight Train, and No Joke trails.
Mountain biking at Creekside means no driving to the Village, no dealing with parking woes, and no hold-ups. Take advantage of this amazing door-to-trail access. Mountain biking culture in Whistler has a devoted following. Be part of it, and enjoy direct access to the trails that few others have.
Biking for All Levels and Abilities
Contrary to popular belief, mountain biking in Whistler is not just for extreme riders. Yes, the adrenaline junkies have their fill with some of the most challenging trails in the region (including world-famous A-Line) but there is also fantastic beginner terrain and trails accessed from the Fitzsimmons Zone, as well as an staffed orientation centre.
Yes You Can! (Download)
Creekside Gondola offers downloading with your bike, so even if you just want to try mountain biking for a day, there is no need for you to descend back to Creekside on expert trails. Download instead!
Check out CAN-SKI’s Creekside location for downhill mountain bikes, helmets, body armour, knee and elbow pads, and the latest technical clothing. Bikes and protective gear, including helmets, are available for purchase or rental. CAN-SKI Creekside changes its name to Garbanzo Bike & Bean during the summer season – and also rents standard front-suspension mountain bikes for those wishing for a slower-paced cycle on the Valley Trail.
Access the Whistler Mountain Bike Park via the Creekside Gondola from June 17, 2017 to September 17th, with weekend access only at the end of the season. Be sure to check the Bike Park website for current hours of operation.
More Trails Coming Soon to Creekside!
For those of you who can’t get enough mountain biking, plans are underway for a major Creek Zone trail expansion – part of the Whistler Blackcomb Renaissance. Renaissance is massive investment into improving on-mountain amenities and recreational opportunities for all seasons. The Creek Zone will gain 50 kms of new biking trails. Time to get on that bike and get familiar with what trails are there now. When the new trails open, you’ll be ready to take them on!
