Trail Enhancements

We’re excited to team up with Gravity Logic, the builders and designers of the Whistler Bike Park, to add two new trails, rebuild an old favourite and re-introduce a variety of features around the Blue Mountain Bike Park.

•Trail #1 - A new machine-built trail with a green difficulty rating providing an excellent playground for beginners.
•Trail #2 - An intermediate off-shoot with an introduction to low wood features.
•Haole - Will receive a facelift with alignment changes and a series of new natural and man-made features.

Bike Park Pass mandatory for all Downhill Riders
Riders under 18 are required to complete a waiver, skill assessment and view an orientation video prior to picking up their Season Pass. All riders are required to complete a waiver and a secondary freeride skill assessment to access Haole. The waiver process can be completed online or on-site at one of our Kiosks. Riders 17 and under MUST complete the Waiver Process with a parent or legal guardian. Upon completion, riders will be issued a photo ID Bike Park Pass which will be required for all subsequent lift ticket or rental purchases. A one-time $10 + tax administration fee will be charged to the rider to complete the process.


Please note waiver process must be completed by all riders and renters.

Blue Mountain Bike Park Trail Conditions Update

The unique biological make-up and high clay content of the Niagara Escarpment makes Blue Mountain Bike trails quite vulnerable to rain and weather conditions.

Safety of our riders is our number one priority, as is protecting the sustainability of our trails and the ecological balance of the surrounding environment. Standard operating procedures exist for the opening and closing of our mountain bike trails and ensure these factors are considered.

Directly following a weather event involving rain the trails are inspected by either the Blue Mountain Trail Crew or Bike Patrol. The decision to delay opening due to unfavourable conditions may be made after this inspection.

We recognize that this delay in information can be an inconvenience to our guests; therefore we thank you in advance for your patience.

If the decision has been made to open the trails during a later period of the day, this information will be communicated through the following channel: http://www.bluemountain.ca/conditions_bike_report.htm.

so it says certain ages have to take a rider assessment. And there is only a small definition but does say it'll take like 30 mins as i remember. What do they just watch you ride or put you through like a skills course, and how long does it usually take?

If you are under 18 they take a run down with you.

no ..it will take at least 30 mins...usually they take you to the pump track and then down a trail and you have to figure in waiting in line,lift time

There is a pump track?

Posted: Mar 22, 2010 at 17:06 Quote

Now I think I remember seeing one. It is on the way to Embryo right? Are they both in that little grassy area? It looked all overgrown when I went last year, didn't even think twice about trying it out.

all pump tracks make you tired. they also get you in shape quick.
the point of the pump track is a little more based to the beginner riders who need to learn balance controls and how to position there body in diff situations. the track is also great for people who ride smaller bikes and HT's... SUPER fun on a smaller bike then a full on dh bike.

they already have some little jumps back in back. nothing to serious like before but im sure you will see more added on top of last years additions.

there directions seems to have changed a little in how they use the terrain i think. and prob for the better.
the double blacks are a little wider and give the experienced riders a chance to get loose and get there wheels off the ground sometimes. pretty much all about picking the right line and linking a good run all together (weather that means slow or fast thats up to you)

edit: Canadmos - you must of been there early season because the track got a revamp and the WHOLE area is dirt now
