Coastal Crew Announce Coast Gravity Park

Oct 8, 2013
by Coastal Crew  
2013 has been very busy for us, some of you may think that we have be solely focused on producing our new film ARRIVAL - You couldn't be more wrong. And now, finally we can tell the world. Let us introduce you to our next project - Coast Gravity Park

coastgravitypark.ca

Over the years we have built countless trails and signature features for several pro riders and high end films. These trails have made the coast a destination recognized across the globe. Historically we have kept these trails very private, but we are humbled by the demand. Now we have the opportunity to create our own lift access bike park. We are confident we can continue to build the best trails out there. Our goal is to share our creative passion with you and bring you into our world. Since our inception in 2009 our fans have celebrated our vision. We appreciate the passion and loyalty of all of our supporters. We couldn’t do what we do today without them. This is the opportunity for us to give back and we hope you will be a part of making it a reality.

Coast Gravity Park Crowd Funding- Indiegogo - Coast Gravity Park

We have created a crowd funding page where you can pre-buy your lift pass. By doing so you directly help fund the development of as many trails as possible before opening.

Our Goal

- To create a place that directly benefits the community, provides new jobs, and encourages kids and youth to get outside and enjoy nature

- Provide a gravity-fed mountain bike park with trails for every level of enthusiast

-Be the first park to provide lift access riding year round

- Your contributions will go directly to trail construction and rider friendly infrastructure. Help us set a new standard for “bike park” trails. The more support we receive from you the rider, the more trails we will create for you to come and ride!

- We are currently accepting bids for several lift options. Our target decision date is January 2014 with a completion window of summer 2014 to spring 2015.

- We are very committed to keeping you informed every step of the way about everything lift, trail and amenity related.

What We Need and What You Get

Months have been spent developing our trail network from top to bottom, but now we need your feedback. We want to know how many of you want to come ride here next season, and how many trails we need. By reaching our goal we will be able optimize our trail network and provide the best riding atmosphere in the industry.

For your $50 contribution you will receive a one day pass voucher. There are also several other pass packages available.

We are offering that you can be one of the first to experience a the new standard. By contributing today, you will be a builder of the world's next great gravity park.

We want to reward as many of our supporters as possible with something extra special. We recognize that a lift operational window of Summer 2014 - Spring 2015 is a long time for the adrenaline-fueled enthusiast. That’s why we will make every effort to redeem as many of our supporters with exclusive pre-opening ride days.

You will have several choices to redeem:

- Redeem your ticket by signing up for exclusive ride days. You will receive a notification when registration is open.

- Wait for the full effect and redeem after lift opening.

- Take advantage of our 4 rider deal for $120 so you can be notified first to sign up for the exclusive ride days. Bring 3 of your friends riding and rock the prequel, or redeem them all for yourself at any time.

100% of the funds raised will be used to enhance the rider experience through trails, amenities and rider friendly infrastructure.

What sets us apart from other bike parks?

Lift access mountain biking ends Oct 16 in Canada and the whole Pacific Northwest of the United States. Thousands of enthusiasts like you must wait with anticipation until late spring. We can provide almost year round, lift access mountain biking. The current inventory of lift access mountain biking around the world has been superimposed around chairlifts which are built to optimize the ski season. Most start at several thousand feet above sea level. This means the snow comes early and leaves late. Our Park is only a few hundred feet above sea level and rarely receives measurable or sustained snowfall.



Q&A

When will we have a lift installed?
The window for completion of lift installation is Sumer 2014 - Spring 2015 and is predicated on lift selection. We are accepting bids from lift manufacturers now. A key component is determining the correct rider capacity. This campaign will offer some great insight into what that rider capacity must be. Once capacity is determined we can make an informed decision on which product is most appropriate. The window to complete installation depending on lift is Summer 2014 to Spring 2015.

How do I redeem my lift pass?
We will send you a printable “voucher” with a confirmation code. This voucher will be redeemable for admission to the park.

If I purchase the 4 day Pass Package will I receive 4 unique vouchers?
Yes, plus each one of these vouchers makes you eligible to sign up for any of the exclusive pre-opening ride days.

If I purchase the 4 day pass package are there any restrictions on redemption?
There are 0 restrictions on redemption. You can redeem with friends on one day or use it your self on four separate days. Each pass is redeemable for one day on the mountain.

Does this mean the passes are fully transferable?
Yes the passes are fully transferable before redeemed.

When is the earliest I could redeem my pass?
We are planning to have exclusive park preview days starting in early 2014.

 It's good to be stoked, but a massive project like this needs real support. I just contributed $100 to help make this a reality for us all. It may not be a huge amount, but they need to see that people are coming.. it will help stoke the builders too!

 Looks insane and if it comes to fruition I would definately make the trip..but i want to know who is backing this financially? No way the boys walked into a bank and walked out with a multi-million dollar loan because chairlifts sure aint cheap. The logistics (land ownership, permits for chairlifts, the entire operation of the park) confuse me but if they have managed to get it together then HUGE props to them. Looking forward to see the development.

 I'm in school right now, 11th grade and I just flipped shit in the middle of class reading this. I'm so f*cking stoked right now. I'm sure others like me have been pre ejaculating in their pants for years at the thought of being able to ride these kind of trails. And throwing a lift in the equation? I'm 100% behind this and as soon as I have the money I'm buying that 4 day pass package.

 BC Ferries is the only thing that can kill this. Round trip for 1 person + car and reservation is close to $100. I want to see this succeed. I really think an arrangement with the Ferries is a must in order to obtain consistent repeat customers.

 if they had a shuttle from Langdale to the park that would be ideal, so you could park on the mainland and pay $15 for a ferry ride.

 walking on and taking transit to schelt wouldnt be that big of an issue and cuts down the cost greatly.

 gas to whistler and back isn't much cheaper if you're comparing trips from vancouver, assuming you're driving a vehicle that can carry bikes. i know they run a smaller boat to the coast though, so that could be an issue. and at the end of the day i'd imagine food/beer/etc will be cheaper on the coast than they would be in whis (or at least you gotta hope so). i bet it's pretty close in cost.

 Its actually only about $60 to get on the feery to sechelt with your car...and that includes your return. A shuttle from gibsons to the park would be brilliant....something to think about.

 It's like $15 if you just walk on. Not to sure about places to stay though. But a shuttle from the ferrie to the park is a must, I assume most people will be walk ons.

 I grew up and live in Sechelt, so obviously I've been a slave to the ferries my whole life. There is a discount if you are with a group of 12 or something in one vehicle, or if you are a student or senior, on certain low traffic days, but otherwise they do not give good discounts. They are very strict about it. I spent 8 years as a kid on the ferries every weekend during the winter going to play hockey games, and me & my teammates and all our dads & coaches always paid full price... just pointing out that even the kids sports teams don't get discounts. If you are a frequent user you can purchase a BC Ferries card then it's a little cheaper, but still $60 as of last week for car & driver. And the price is always being raised. That said, since I actually live here, I'd freakin love it if this park was built! High five Coastal Crew!!

 Camping yes, basically right at the bottom... on the waterfront. Very busy in the summer. No hostels, a couple crappy motels that would not let you have bikes. That is it. Lots of b&bs and rental homes though.

 Someone in sechelt needs to open a bikers hostel if this park becomes a reality. I'd love come over in the winter and ride but camping doesn't sound all that appeasing and I'd prefer a warm place to stay.

 Hey peoples.... There is full fledge bus company running up and down the coast. The name of the company is malaspina coach lines. The company takes pride in their high and motor coaches and first class service. As Mountain bikers we can talk them into putting a special from Langdale or Vancouver directly to the mountain bike park. It would be very convenient for everybody who would need a ride to the park, check out the web site... www.malaspinacoach.com and please check out the Facebook page, just search malaspina coach. Post your support, and ideas to the Facebook page and follow! This would be a great hand in hand buisness opportunity! Anyone wanna get incontact with them? Its already established buisness and a community fav! There is a lot of licencing to set up for a run like that so its easier to propose to the existing company!!

 coastal crew: just please make sure to use some of that money to hire a large build/buff crew. The downfall of the bike parks I've been to is that their fun, flowy jump trails become brake-bumped, rutted, flattened bomb holes after a couple rains and a couple hundred slow people (myself included, I'll be honest) braking where they shouldn't. Then most mountains simply don't have the maintenance staff to fix these issues in a timely manner during the season. An actually buff, big jump trail that stays that way would be super sick. I'll come help dig!
  • 2 1
 Also don't forget to build some lines that are purposely rough. I know you guys can build incredible flow trails, but don't forget the rest!

 Freaking awesome, now we just need a lift in Port Angeles, WA and I am set! I love the idea of a lift under the typical snow line, I really hope this business plan works out and can be an example for others. Think of all the mountains in California that never or very rarely see snow, but have the vertical to support lift accessed mountain bike trails and the weather year round as well!

 Scotland really could use one of these epic bike parks though. The lack of lift access trails is awful. It's not as if we don't have mountains big enough for something like this. Don't get me wrong I do love a good all day ride. But sometimes I just want to throw out as many runs as I can going as fast as I can. I feel it helps me progress at a faster pace.

 Ay? Fort Bill, Glencoe have lift access and Innerleithen has had planning accepted for an uplift in the form of a train, plus every other major DH spot has uplift more or less every weekend. Whatchu onnabowt?
  • 1 0
 I wasn't saying that there aren't any. Just that the uplift is nothing like having a chair. You could finish your run and have to wait for quite a while until the next uplift. Hopefully inerleithen get the uplift put in but it could be a while. Fort bill doesn't have a massive variety of trail either unless there have been more built. I haven't tried glencoe yet.

 The best way to show you're stoked? Buy an advance ticket. I just picked up 3 of them for $100.. My ankle may be broken now, but it will be fixed by the time this is rolling..

 Oh man I would like nothing more than to see incredible trails such as these open up. Also, kudos to the Coastal Crew for building their own trails, riding the S*#@t out of them to get awesome, turn pro and push to build a local business based on said success but...............

Really? $65 for a ferry ride (car and driver only) plus a $50+ lift ticket and 1.5 hour one-way travel time to access less vertical than you could ride on the North Shore for free or take the same time to drive to Squamish and ride free? In the summer it's quicker and less expensive to get to Whistler which has way more vertical and acres and for better or for worse, infrastructure. Riding year round would be nice but less than 10 hours of usable daylight in the woods on the southwest slopes coupled with huge rainfall and high bike traffic makes for really unpleasant mountain biking (especially if paying $$ for it). Winter riding up here is best done on the cold and clear days when it is -5 to 5 degrees and the wet trails have frozen probably all of 14 days a year. There are much better things to be doing in the winter up here......or go to Utah.......

Honestly guys take your trail building brand on the road to existing infrastructure. Mt. Washington is proof that remote, small operations are a tough go. I would guess that they closed due to low participation and lack of sufficient alternate revenue which could cover the high insurance and operating costs. The major resorts get in your pockets at the lift ticket AND through hospitality costs since they own most of the shops, restaurants and/or lease land to the major hotel chains. Don't waste your social capital on this..........

I kinda hope I am wrong on this one.
  • 2 0
 I WANT YOU TO BE WRONG! But I kinda agree with what you are saying. Everyone on Vancouver Island could basically do a day trip and ride at Mount Washington and it failed (granted they could have invested more into trail buffing). I hope they succeed. I really do... but with the cost/time of getting to Sechelt I won't be doing it very often.
  • 1 0
 I have to agree too, unfortunately lift accessed parks are just away for ski hills to keep things turning and make a little bit of business come summer.

the amount of lift tickets they will have to sell to keep the lift turning is mega once you add in the annual cost of maintenance, safety inspections, 20-25% annual non destructive testing, training for evacuation, and all the people required on a daily basis for bc safety to sign off on it. then you have whistler down the road, what happens when they open up a zone in the next year or 2.

it would be fantastic to have it but I think they are really up against it.
  • 1 0
 Sounds amazing and will definitely go, but I would love to see the business plan for this. Whoever is putting the money up(the crowd funding is great but will not make a dent in the start up costs) isn't going to see a return for a while.

 I want to see this happen. They could do "Guest Trails" every year, with a different legendary builder making their signature trail addition to the park. Who do you vote for for the inaugural year? Video piece up on the website to promote the featured "Digger"... Limited Edition Passes if you voted for the one that won... What about the race series at this place, like Phat Wednesdays?

 Does anyone know about the parks intended topography? Or at minimum the intended amount of elevation available for use? Not that it matters all that much, I'm just curious to see if it'll be something like 500 feet or 2000ft? I know here in W. Oregon, we don't usually see snow that much below 2000-2500 and if we do, it's usually not around all that long. I'm hoping for around 1000ft.

So STOKED! This is a fantastic idea. Wish we had something like that around here.

 looking on google earth, the section indicated seems to be just north of that quarry in Sechelt, about a square mile in size, elevation from approximately 1400' - 400'. Based on what I saw in the video, they are making extremely good use of the space and the trails appear pretty densely packed. Imagine if Whistler built like that, it'd take you the whole day to make it down the mountain.

 I should clarify. This is awesome. I am stoked. You guys are awesome.

I just want a way to be a proper foundation supporter.

Just a thought.

 I love the thought of a lift assisted Sunshine Coast gravity park! But I think financially, it is really bad idea. I imagine this areas must have fire road acess to the top. Why not buy a fleet of shuttle busses? That way you are only wearing out your machinery when there is demand, as opossed to running a chairlift all day with only a few people on the mountain. There are only 10 weekends in summer. Thats 20 big days to cash in, the rest of the time I imagine attendance will not be enough to warrant operating a chair. What I would do is start small with the shuttle vans and see how it goes. As for those who say the cost of ferries will keep riders from Vancouver staying on the North Shore, I don't fully agree. While budget is important, exploring new terrain is one of the greatest joys of mountain biking, and a worthy expenditure. Stay small and keep it all!

 Hell yeah! Now I gotta figure out how long it takes to get from Seattle to the Coast. I can make it to Whistler in just over 4 hours but soon there will be an indoor jump park on the drive north that is going to cause slow downs, even on snowboarding trips.
  • 2 1
 Why on island? Why you guys are not interested to build bikepark in Vancouver - Seymour or Cypress. There is chair lift, easy access for 2 millions people who are living in Van. It will be totally nice to ride your park once or twice a year but if you are not living on island its so far from Van and than I will prefer to go to Whistler....
Thats my opinion.
Good luck!

 It basically is an island in that the major source of riders will be taking a ferry to get there. I've done day trips over to the Sunshine Coast to ride and during a busy weekend you're constantly worrying about making the ferry back, even if you're just walking on. Miss the ferry and you sit there licking ice cream for two hours contemplating that you should have just gone up to squamish...oh and your parking at Horseshow Bay just expired as well.

 Really glad these guys are taking initiative. Good on them, but for the love of god would someone with a business degree do a quick feasibility and land use study for them. robinhood77 nailed it.

P.s. your social capital coupled with existing nsmb stewardship would be an interesting joint venture that could result in lift access to fromme on the non "grouse" side. I would guess that's a money maker. Get some backing from a real venture fund and a strong leadership team and bring the shore into modern times. That's an endeavour that I would pay handsomely for the privilege to ride.

 Seriously...where is the business plan on their website? 100K will barely pay the designer and approvals for this, unless they have a major financial backer with deep pockets, there is no feasible business case for this park and still, it's hard to see how they would make any money at this. While this park may get high traffic on weekends in the summer and maybe some mid-week traffic in the summer, it will be dead in the winter. And seriously, how many times are people going to go over there versus Whistler...it's like Cumberland, maybe go once a year to ride but it's certainly not the draw of a major resort with other things to do, nightlife, etc...

Also, why would BC Ferries give bikers a discount, what about the dozens of other tourist operators and hotels on the sunshine coast? Their customers don't get discounts, why would a few dirtbag bikers get a discount?

I can't believe people will just blindly hand money over for this without more information. Get ready to climb! Seriously, what people will do to get out of riding their bike up a hill.

I felt the same way! What could they be thinking? Something is missing.. Why is Whistler so big? You must have big noise to support big noise!

 You guys have to remember that people didn't believe that Whistler could grow as big as it did when it was just a gas station and a ski hill. Nowadays too there's a whole bunch more people with money who are willing to spend on leisure like this. Even if it doesn't end up working you have to give a world of respect to a bunch of young canucks chasing their dreams!!!

 Good plan, fellas. Hats off. One question- Where's the LOAM?! I'll come up there and ride wet roots all winter if you've got em! Speaking of, covered lift or Gondola options? Best of luck, which it doesn't seem like you need on account of good planning.

 Beautiful!!! You will have our support...I own a BC wine distribution company, so i touch base on the Sunshine regularly. Our friends used to own a bike shop in Gibsons and because of that we were able to learn about and explore your Coast!! The riding, climate, and backcountry feel of the Sunshine Coast is just so REAL. You can go there to grow, heal or LOOSE IT!----your call......Best of all successes to y'all...........and..............................(open in the winter!!! you'd definitely be unique for that!) So happy to learn of this......Marcus from VanIsle

 I can't wait for this park! It will shine a new light on Freeride Mountain Biking and have some of the best trails ever made. I am just stoked to have another MTB park so close to home and can't wait to shred the Coastal Crew loam!!

 Why don't they just run a shuttle service up the Roberts Creek fire service road? Because even that wouldn't make enough money to support buying trucks, insurance and gas & paying staff. I applaud the creative entrepreneurs who are taking the risk on this. But it will not survive beyond one season - they simply won't get the traffic to justify the operating expenses, let alone the capital cost.

 Looks sweet and nice video but attempting (and probably failing) not to put a downer on things but although you said there was lots of variation in trails, all the video showed was super groomed, flowy trails with hits you're average joe wouldn't be riding. Perhaps not the best advert for a park that supposedly suits everyone.

 Would be RAD if Kona stopped wasting resources building parks in Europe and instead hooked up the PNW with some local park action in their own back yard. You listening Kona? Oh, sorry, you're deaf.

 Wait... We have to wait for a lift. Can't we just get a van with a trailer for bikes and we pay them to take us up the mountain.... If that's the case it's ridable today.

 You should get Bc Ferries to cooperate and give discount if your Riding the Park ,include a Shuttle by Speedboat from Horsehoebay to Roberts creek. Id be willing to get a pass chairlifts are expensive.That is main issue . Looks like Full nelson,Burns lake style has influenced the Scene .All the hard work put in by these guys and all the Diesel fuel I hope the dream comes true and Whistler has some competition.

 You don't even need to read if you want to. There's a video he can listen without using too much of his brain to know that there will even be blue runs for beginners to the sport!
  • 3 4
 Well there are bike parks that i know who says they offer trails for every skill level. But then you get there its like one truly advanced run and the rest are snoozefest greens. Or the reverse, theres a bunch of pro level runs with features requiring full commitment to big moves and only one or two blue/black runs. Just wondering is all...geez.
