With 595 metres (1,954’) of chairlift accessed vertical, 36 distinct trails that range from technical DH and flowing machine-made, to scenic all-mountain and expansive cross country, the Sun Peaks Bike Park has something for everyone.

The Park continues to evolve much like the bikes and riders that visit each summer. New for 2012, the Big Rock Ride accesses the summit of Sundance Mountain and the entire cross country network, even invading Mt. Morrisey. This summer will also see the introduction of the new Altitude Trail, taking riders to the high alpine of the “Top of the World”, with plenty of options for the 825 (2,707’) metre descent back to the village below. Plus, now you can keep riding even after the chairs stop turning for the day with a short pedal from the base of the lift to a brand new pump track and skills area!

Despite a couple June powder days on the upper reaches of the mountain, the Park is looking great and it’s sure to be a super tacky season out there. The dedicated trail crew of returning shredders know the trails better than anyone and have been working hard through a wet spring to get them buffed. You’ll notice loads more flow on the rooty and rocky singletrack, some rerouting to keep you fully pinned on some of the gnarlier DH tracks, big ‘ol berms built-up on freeride trails to rail those high lines, and access to all three commanding peaks surrounding the Sun Peaks valley for some outstanding views.

Nac Nac on Steam Shovel

August 6-10 is our Freeride Camps. Back by popular demand, our wildly successful freeride camps are coached by some of BC's top riders and will immerse participants in all aspects of freeriding, in our legendary Bike Park.

Our coaches have been riding a long time and know it's all about having fun on the trails, so skill development is well balanced with positive encouragement and plenty of high fives! They'll provide campers with the skills and confidence to tackle single track, berms, jumps, steeps, and whatever else the mountain might throw their way. Campers will also learn bike setup and maintenance to ensure that their bikes are properly tuned and safe to hit the trails.

Students are broken up into groups based on riding ability and the camper to coach ratio is no greater than 6:1, to ensure everyone gets the best instruction and safest care possible.

If you’ve never experienced a day on the trails in the legendary Sun Peaks Bike Park, you really have no idea what you’re missing. If you have, ‘nuff said, we’ll see you again this summer. Get Real. Gnarly. Sun Peaks Bike Park – Yeah Bro!

 I think the fact the video IS sped up makes it better. Even watching a fast rider at normal speed in POV is boring. This one is not boring.
  • + 5
 ^ Screw that, it was POV footage. Its OK to slow that down but speeding up is tom foolery. Its like you're trying to make people think that you're riding faster than you really are... but it was still fun to watch because their style is sooo sick.
  • + 7
 when you use a chest mount there is more movement which creates the illusion that your going faster, its the same idea behind when movies film fast car races the camera is shaky to give the illusion that its going faster than it actually is. I do not believe this was sped up at all, it looks realistic to me, especially since it is a chest cam and of course because its a wide angle lens too. I've seen the same effect on my own chestcam footage.
  • + 4
 I hope its not because there's a reason why speeding up mtb footage died out a long time ago.

 We shot this on a 7d and its shutter speed is a lot faster then a gopro or contour. Ever shot is 100% real speed, no sped up footage.

 Makes it even better then knowing it wasn't sped up. Usually POV footage puts me to sleep (unless I'm watching one of my own slow runs, as they usually end in a crash Wink ). This one didn't, because it was fast and well put together.

 I don't think you know what you're talking about. Nothing is slower, or faster then gravity. Think about it.
  • + 1
 This keeps popping up in my feed so I might as well respond...

Gravity isn't an object that travels with a certain velocity so technically comparing anything to the "speed" of gravity is nonsensical, like saying that Silvia is lying about not speeding up this footage. You're all insane.
  • + 1
 And people say us americans are dumb?
Gravity is a natural force of attraction between two bodies which is directly proportional to their mass. The speed at which Silvia can travel cannot be measured in terms of gravitational force (although it is a part of the equation). Speed is a calculated measurement of distance traveled vs time.

I have never face-palmed harder in my life, you should all be shamed
  • + 1
 scott beat me to the punch Salute
  • + 3
 All true, although gravity acts upon objects which will in turn have a velocity. minty1 made a comment that makes no sense but if we assume that the force of gravity upon objects is what he was trying to talk about redrook is spot on with his reply. You are able to move your body faster than gravity is able to move upon objects (and as we all know no matter how heavy an object it will fall at the same speed as any other, without air resistance).
The whole gravity thing bears no relation to whether the footage is sped up (it is btw), and you could easily find out if the bikes in the video are falling at a speed greater than the speed produced by the force of gravity upon them. And they are.
Oh and minty1, I just dropped a stapler and caught it before it hit the ground, it's really very easy.

 Ok I didn't want to get into this with you guys 'cause this ain't no physics thread. The speed of gravity is a term referred to the speed at which changes in the gravitational field are produced (i,e gravitons) So ok maybe minty knows this and he just wanted to troll everyone here, but what you are calling the speed of gravity is merely gravitational potential energy,and note that that is not the only way gravity interacts with objects. I'm done being a nerd now. Peace.

 BMX has a much wider audience. At the local club we have an age gap of 4 - 56. Viewing of the track is a lot easier than DH. Accesibility is much easier (a world class BMX track is a lot easier to build) instead of finding a big enough mountain to build a world class track on. Also BMX as a whole is a lot more recognisable than a small part of mountain biking

 Disagree completely bmx is a fading sport in this country racing is not supported at all,street and vert in a small way and it's looked at as a kids pastime,Mtb is huge in comparison and is only getting bigger,viewing the track is a pointless comment,marathon,sailing,road race,triathlon etc etc,there are also world class dh courses in most areas of England and I should imagine a lot of other countries too,how else would they hold the world cup stages!? How is bmx more accessible!? There are zero tracks anywhere near where I live and you are Limited to using bmx on street or perfect smooth dirt,whole families from little kids to grandparents ride Mtb all over this country and have the choice to ride out the front door or in the countryside with ease,no brainier.
  • + 1
 I thought we were begin to reach some form of understanding! DH = mountains, BMX = piled up dirt. Lets see, how can we fit a mountain range into London to make is accessible to the general public? Nope, looks like we really can't but there seems to be a free space of land where we can pile up some dirt for oh I dont know, a bmx track.....Poeple can come down and watch the sport without driving hours to a mountain range.


Don't be a f*cking retard man. Don't go saying DH is more accessible to people because thats bullshit. Unless of course those people live in mountain villages. I live in a town in northern Germany. To get to the nearest mountains (not even suitable for a WC track) I gotta spent 100 euros on trains/bus and 3-4 hours in travel time. The local bmx track is just 15 min away. Hold the olympics in whistler and then we have something to talk about

 Get a grip mate,anger management?? Easy to insult people from a distance. Was talking about Mtb in general you child,now go and do some growing up.

 I really hope you aren't 41, because then you ,sir, have some growing up to do. Really, I mean how would you know Kenny here has no clue in life? Stop throwing shit around the internet like a brainless monkey. If you don't want to be made fun of on the internet you better start using proper semantics, punctuation, spelling and grammar. Isn't not knowing correct semantics for simple physics concepts a little embarrassing for your age? Doesn't the fact that a 16 year old Mexican is correcting your English and enlightening you in physics make you feel inadequate? I would surely feel inadequate and embarrassed if I were you. You really have to start using that brain of yours.

 Kenny you're acting like a complete dick, don't be so sanctimonious the video is obviously sped up. They aren't going come come give you a hug because you defended them on a forum. minty1, leave it alone, don't feed the trolls.
  • - 3
 Damn't, I've been called out....But where in the world is it sped up, I cant see anything of the sort!
  • + 1
 Ok, minty1, a couple of things. 1. Viewing of the sports is not a pointless argument. The sports you listed (marathon, triathlon, road race) are brilliant for spectators as the course goes past their houses. All they would have to do see the race is walk a few hundred metres down the end of their road and they are there. Can't get much easier than that.

2. World Cup downhill tracks in England. The only track they use for World Cup events in the U.K is Fort William. That's 825km away from London. A fair distance to travel for athletes who are based out of London.

3. Just because there are zero tracks where you live, doesn't mean you represent the world. When I said accessibility I wasn't talking about the general public going out and actually racing BMX. I was talking about event organisers building a track in a central location that was easy to get to for the general public. Heck, how many people actually do any of the events that are in the Olympics? Probably next to nothing, but people still enjoy watching them. Just because it is easier to jump on a mountain bike and more people participate in it, doesn't mean it should be in the Olympics. How many people do you know actively participate in Artistic synchronised swimming? Not many I would think. Should we switch that out for who can slide down a waterslide faster? Because that is something everyone can relate too.

 We weren't born yesterday, clearly at least 60% of that video was sped up, especailly 2:05 to 2:17...

 The video is sped up in order for the footage to flow better with the song and for aesthetic appeal. I don't see why you all care so much about it when plenty of top level film making involves the modification of footage including the speed of playback, both slow and fast. Not to mention it is still thoroughly pleasing and impressive to watch.
  • + 11
 Personally I think films of this type benefit from realism,great riding will look more skilful at normal frame rates and give the viewer a much better idea of the trails being ridden and the skill of the riders,if the footage doesn't 'flow' with the music then change the track!?!
  • + 3
 I dont mind the speeding up as much as I'm disappointed they forgot to wipe the lens off half of the time...
  • + 1
 Speed control via editing is to achieve a feeling, not to "fool" us in to thinking the riders are going faster. MTB clips these days seem to sterile, documentary. I loved the silent MTB vid that dropped a few days ago.

Also, STRIPPED was such a creative approach, I wish more of the big production companies would have 2 different approaches. 1) Bike Promo-style vids 2) Purely creative abstract approach (Shawn of the Dead) styli
  • - 2
 It is not sped up you guys! This is called real riders riding a trail that they know like the back of their hand. Watch it again. Try speeding up one of you POV shots. It will look funky because the physics will be off. It will not look like this. This is an amazing example of professional riders shredding the trails they love and feel most comfortable on. Saying that they are sped up is an insult to the riders and the filmmaker.
  • + 2
 tadinski13, if you knew what you were talking about, you'd know it was sped up. it can clearly be seen. I think you may be the only person commenting on the issue to say that it has not been sped up.
  • - 1
 Well I do know what I am talking about but I am sure that doesn't mean anything to you. The filmmakers themselves commented above confirming my statement. If you can't take either of our words as truth then you are a lost cause. Speeding up footage is the practice of amateurs. Silva would never dream of speeding anything up with the intent of deception. Did you try what I said previously?

Here is their comment....

 Wait and see how we do at the 'mtbing' event - however given the half-arsed track that they have the cheek to call 'mountain biking', i'm not sure there'll be that much of a boom...
  • + 1
 The "we don't have their mountains" argument is true, but we have more than adequate mountains and natural terrain to produce good length tracks (Fort Bill for example), I don't know of many people who would like their bike park runs to be any longer than the downhill track is there, and therefore we could produce good bike parks. The most important difference is the lack of uplift facilities, which is where my argument for investment was aiming. Mountain ranges (or large enough hills if you'd like to be picky) across Wales, Scotland and Northern England could be greatly utilised, hell even Aston Hill in the South East would greatly appreciate an uplift.

I don't think we should write off the possibilities before we've even attempted to run a few uplifts from Chris Hoy's legs.
  • + 1
 to be fair, it is picking up. There's two new downhill bike parks in north wales just opened in the last year or so, there's one being built in south wales with rumours of a chair lift, then of course there's glencoe which is having new tracks built currently and fort bill is the obvious big one, though more than one track would be nice
  • + 1
 Actually the biggest two things in the way of lift assisted mtb in the UK are, the lack of financial justification (any operation would pretty much be guaranteed to run at a loss) and the lack of places to put such operations. We have so overdeveloped our natural landscape that we can't put up operations on our natural land without wrecking the ecosystems. The situation is entirely different in Canada because they have so much natural landscape that the odd mountain development is fairly inconsequential. They are also very well run, often in line with good sustainability principles. I actually studied sustainable tourism and did Whistler as a case study.

About the money, I'll just repost something I wrote a few weeks ago:

Chairlifts are extremely expensive and complex to install and run. Not only would somewhere doing that have to get a lot of investment capital but they would have to guarantee a full season of constant ticket sales every year, not to mention the years of planing prior to construction. In 2011 a Doppelmyer detatchable (what they use in Whistler among other places) was around $12million+ just to install. You can double that with planning and track setup for a higher volume of riders. Then constant staffing (operators, maintenance etc). For most places it does cost the world for a car park and chairlift, hence Innerleithen will never have a chance to get one.

Let me put it this way, Whistler breaks even/makes a loss in the summer.

  • + 2
 I had the opportunity to ride and film with Silvia a while back, and yes you are correct. They mount it using a home made rig. The camera rests on top of a couple of hook looking things in the front, not exactly sure how it was actually attached though. I do recall they used a tire tube to secure the whole rig to the rider, though Razz
  • + 2
 Hey guys, they did something different, and I give them props for that. Some people may not have liked it as much but you never progress without trying something new. Plus, that was one of the most stable DSLR chest mounts I have ever seen, they should sell that thing, I'd buy one!

 I give props for Lone Wolf Productions saying its creative. Sure, everyone can ride with a chest cam or helmet cam, but Silvia have gone and stepped out of what they know and try to take something everyone can do, and make it extraordinary.

Thankfully I will likely watch this video on repeat for several hours, trying to find a pattern in the glove selection (or lack there of) and wake up with barely enough time to put in 4 hrs @ COP tomorrow.

 I love the POV footage, it really lets you feel the speed in a way almost non-replicable even with a zipline.. The length was great too! I was expecting a ~2 min video but we got almost a whole 5 minutes of greatness! Thanks!!

 "it really lets you feel the speed". Well, it does, so it's a great position for action footage (better than helmet cam), but chest mounted camera with wide angle makes it look way more impressive than it really is. talking from expierience.

 The fact that it is sped up probably gives you the speed sensastion.

 Just got back from sun peaks it's sure didn't look like that it's dry as a bone, ace fun though, got back to whistler and thought everything was pretty flat in comparison to sun peaks! Just need some new brake

 I thought there was way too many cuts though, I couldn't watch much parts of certain trails because it would cut away way too fast.

 Gloves on, gloves off, gloves on, gloves off, different gloves on... Must be technical if you need all that different gear :o)

Great looking trail though

 Chest cam footage is cool. a few static shots would have been nice. Exelent job editing takes to the music. Should have only been 3 minutes long.
