Whistler Creekside Downhill Mountain Biking Access
Downhill Mountain Bike right outside your door. You can do that now from Legends.
Just like in winter, when you walk outside and stumble onto the gondola (literally, isn't it that easy?) now, in summer, you can take your bike and off you go to the Whistler Bike Park.
The opening of the Creekside area makes your access to Whistler Bike Park truly next-level. The bike park offers a total of 4,946 feet or 1,507 metres of lift-serviced downhill mountain bike trails. There is something for every level rider, including gentle cruisers, tight and twisty single track, steep rock faces, gnarly root lines, drop offs and much more. There is also a jump park, drop-off park, and the Boneyard Slopestyle Park.
Riding the Creekside Zone is recommended for advanced and expert riders only, however, the Creekside Gondola provides access to the Fitz and Garbanzo Zones via Expressway, Lower Freight Train, and No Joke Trails. Return riding to the Creekside Base is possible via Dusty’s Downhill, which is an expert level route that descends Franz’s ski trail and the existing fire road network on the south side of Whistler Mountain. An existing singletrack valley classic “BC’s Trail” (Black Diamond) is accessible via the fire road as well. The Creekside Gondola also allows downloading to the Creekside Base.
Currently, the gondola is operating from 10 AM - 5 PM daily. Then on September 7th (weather permitting) the gondola will switch to weekends only until September 20th. Bikers can purchase tickets and passes from Creekside’s CAN-SKI, which also offers bike repairs, rentals and merchandise.
Whistler Blackcomb plans to expand more downhill mountain biking into Creekside (yea!). We just need to show it is being used, and, of course, there are BC provincial government approvals necessary. But for the time being, we're off to a great start. You'll be able use Legends as your base in both winter and summer — and bet the true athlete you are all year round.
