Whistler Creekside Downhill Mountain Biking Access
Legends is just steps from the Creekside Gondola. Fantastic for winter skiing and boarding – also perfect to take advantage of over 80 kilometres of mountain bike trails! Enjoy access to the lifts for you and your bike, in the most efficient way. You’ll be heading up the mountain with your bike before anyone else.
Mountain Biking for the Whole Family
Mountain biking is not just for adrenaline junkies seeking high-speed drops. The Whistler Mountain Bike Park is open to all ages and abilities. That said, mountain biking trails in the Creek Zone are for advanced and expert riders only. To get to beginner and intermediate trails, ride the Creekside Gondola to access the Fitzsimmons and Garbanzo Zones via Expressway, Lower Freight Train, and No Joke trails.
Know Your Zones - and Download if Necessary…
Get familiar with the Whistler Mountain Bike Park trail map which lists trails according to ability level, and whether or not it is a technical trail (natural obstacles and features), or a freeride trail (machine-made obstacles and features). Downloading is available on the Creekside Gondola - so beginners and intermediate bikers can get back to Creekside without tackling expert trails.
Take it Slow
New to biking? Check out the Bike Park’s orientation guide video series, designed to get you comfortable with basic technique. And be sure to stop by the Orientation Centre in the Fitzsimmons Zone, where guides are available to answer questions about where to go, and how to ride safely.
Camps for All
Whistler Mountain Bike Park offers clinics and camps for the whole family. For adults, try Bike Park 101 – a 2-hour lesson to get you feeling comfortable to explore the park on your own. The DFX kids’ camp program is very popular, with a maximum instructor-to-child ratio of 6:1.
Gear is Close at Hand
With Garbanzo Bike & Bean bike shop (GBB) opening in Creekside for the summer biking season, the latest gear and technical clothing is available right outside your door. GBB also rents kids’ bikes and equipment. Helmets, body armour and pads are available for rent or purchase.
New Trails Coming to Creekside…
Whistler Blackcomb’s Renaissance will transform the mountain in many ways, with millions of dollars in investment for on-mountain recreation. But best of all for Creekside, it is going to expand biking opportunities in the Creek Zone by 50 km of new trail! Get comfortable on your bike now. When the new trails open up you’ll be ready to explore them.
With the Creekside Gondola opening for bike park access on June 17th, it’s time to get ready to hit the trails. Hone your skills all summer until September 17th. Be sure to check for the latest updates and opening hours throughout the season. Happy Biking!
