Photo Story: Opening Day at Bike Big White

This past weekend Big White opened for summer operations. The cooler temperatures this spring meant that the opening had been delayed a week due to a lingering snow pack but that didn't stop the stoke as there were 60 riders lined up ready to ride when the lifts started spinning.

The line was rolling 60 deep as the chair cracked.

Brett Tippie joined the festivities and helped to hype the crowd along with his daughter Jessamy who is an absolute shredder. Check out our social channels to see more footage of their day in the park and the upcoming first episode of our new 'Trail Of The Week' series.

Smile we see you.

Big White's opening day also doubled as an industry day as we played host to local bike shop owners, trail associations and their staff. Feedback on the early season conditions was incredibly positive and there were smiles all-round as people soaked in the action from The Woods patio.

The weather cooperated so it was game-on for the patio sessions.

The biggest props go out to the trail crew who worked tirelessly to get the bike park in shape with 85% of trails open for riding on day one. This coming weekend we'll be close to 100% open.
