Whistler, British Columbia, is synonymous with lift-served mountain biking, and for good reason. The Whistler Bike Park offers miles of trails for the intermediate to advanced rider, everything from technical, jump filled runs to swoopy, bermed trails that bob and weave through the towering fir and cedar trees. But while the bike park often steals the spotlight, there are countless other opportunities for adventure on and off the bike in the Whistler area. The cross-country riding is world class, with miles of challenging trails offering spectacular views of the surrounding peaks.
Plus, if you find yourself worn out from all the hours of saddle time, there are plenty of rest day activities. Spend a day people watching and checking out the excellent eateries in the Whistler Village, go whitewater rafting, bungee jumping, swimming... the options are endless.
