where are you driving from? what type of riding are you into (bike parks, local single track stuff, dj)? there are tons of options, just need to narrow it down a bit.

Perfect trip hitting all the hot spots...

Kamloops - bike ranch, sun peaks ( lift access ) harper mountain, loops trails

This will cover a few days for sure. there's tons of trails, to ride hit the ski hill for a few days, and than rock out the bike ranch and dj's for a lil.

Vernon - (silver star) - by far second best lift access in bc next to whistler. its got everything, except the busy line ups from whistler.

Kelowna - gillard, postil, powers, bit hits, wall rides, everything you need. easy spend 3-5 days here. oh ya its right on okanagan lake great beach time. tone of flowy riding.

Vancouver - North shore riding at its bst. but watch for the rain. Grouse, seymour, cyrpress, you'll find more than enough to ride.

Sun shine coast - there outdoor ed class in school maintains the trails, its sick.

Whistler - of course this is no brainer...


a few other spots to maybe check out, kicking horse in revelstoke, mt washington on the isalnd, nelson, rossland, pemberton, squamish - havent riddden this yet so dont wanna give others opinions...

hope you enjoy all bc has to offer. Britnee

Nanaimo, Sooke(Broom Hill I heard is pretty good), Victoria, Mount Washington is a must, Parksville/Qualicum Beach, and Gold River has some pretty gnarly trails(seen in Elemental.)

Kamloops is definetly a must, It is possibly one of the funnest riding places on Earth. Sunpeaks wasn't bad when I went, it's definetly worth to check out. I've heard good things about Silverstar, and Kelowna.

Dh and freeride spots on Vancouver Island- Parksville has the Hammerfest DH course, I heard its pretty snazzy. Nanaimo, has Doumont for Dh and freeride trails, also Mount Benson. Gold River has some pretty amazing trails, it's kind of out of the way, but it is definetly worth it. Mount Washington is a absolute must, such a fun place to ride.


Don't forget Whistler...Fab
