With perfectly tacky trails emerging in early spring and continuing until late fall, Whistler’s biking season is endless offering a wide variety of riding options for all levels and tastes. Over 300 km of cross-country trails can be found throughout the valley with everything from easy green trails to endless technical ascents and decents that wind through old-growth rainforest and scenic alpine meadows. While the Whistler Mountain Bike Park, offers downhill mountain bikers the chance explore four distinct mountain zones with over 80 km of lift-serviced trails. For a more relaxing ride, Whistler’s Valley Trail network features over 40 km of paved, accessible, scenic trails that are perfect for easy pedaling with family and friends.
