Celebrating National Tourism Week in Canada with 10 of Our Favourite Canadian Bike Destinations

May 30, 2020
by Sarah Moore  



To celebrate National Tourism Week in Canada, we thought we would share ten recent Destination Showcases and Local Flavours articles to celebrate some of the top mountain bike destinations in Canada. What a place to be a mountain biker!

Please follow the advice of health authorities to keep yourself and others safe. Now may not the time to travel, but we can't wait to head back to some of these spots in the future.






Big White
British Columbia


Big White brought plenty of great action last year during the Big White Slopestyle with the world's best throwing down some insane tricks. Bike Big White is the official location partner of Pinkbike Academy and we can't wait to get out there this summer. (Read more.)

Silver Star Mountain Resort
British Columbia


Outside of Whistler, Silver Star has by-far the most established mountain bike trail network in the province. (Read more.)






Kootenays
British Columbia


With iconic landmarks such as the Yoho National park, the Purcells, the Rockies, the Monashees, and the Selkirk mountain ranges, the scale of the terrain in the Kootenays is incredible. (Read more.)
Invermere Surrounding areas are truly breathtaking.





Whistler
British Columbia


With its world-class bike park and over 300km of singletrack in the valley and a ton of other stuff to do, it's tough to know where to start. Well fear not, we designed a perfect four-day itinerary for Whistler, BC. (Read more.)





Okanagan
British Columbia


While the Okanagan may be best known for its wineries and orchards, there's still plenty of room for mountain bike trails to criss-cross the region in Penticton, Kelowna, Vernon, and Kamloops. (Read more.)





Sun Peaks
British Columbia


Everything you need to know before you head to the bike park just outside of Kamloops, BC. (Read more.)





New Brunswick
Maritimes


Andy Vathis headed to New Brunswick on Canada's East Coast to check out what the local communities are doing to develop fat biking in the region. (Read more.)
The Tour de Fat Exploring New Brunswick s Winter Trails - Destination Showcase





Quebec City
Quebec


A huge variety of trails, a vibrant cultural scene, and a whole lot of croissants will make you want to head to Quebec City. (Read more.)





Sunshine Coast
British Columbia


Brice Shirbach headed to the year-round riding destination on the Sunshine Coast in British Columbia last summer and was struck by the beauty of the place, and the amount of loam on the trails. (Read more.)





Kicking Horse / Fernie
British Columbia


You're going to want to add Kicking Horse and Fernie to your BC Road trip itinerary after reading this article. (Read more.)





Where are you excited to visit once things open up again?

 Heavy Okanogan bias here.. 3 of 10 destinations? Why not group Big White, Silverstar & Okanogan all into the 'Okanogan' category and give Van Isle a mention? Yes. I am biased too.

 I'm with you. However, the Island doesn't need recognition on this list. Those of us who ride here know how special it is.

 The Okanogen bias is just the tip of the iceberg. This whole damn site has a Canadian bias. Where's the top 10 list of Oklahoma destinations? Or Delaware? I've had about enough of Sarah Moore's geographical biases.

 @luckynugget: I dunno, I really enjoy Silverstar. I ride every BC park every summer and if I had to choose only one for the season it would be Silverstar. The trails aren't ever in terrible shape, I've never had to wait more than 5 chairs to get on the lift and the variety is pretty stellar. I love Whistler but it's too busy and get blown out by the end of May (well, not this year but most years). Fernie is a trash fire, particularly last year with the Timber chair closed. I typically prefer the Elk valley trails anyway but the park has really lost its mojo since about 2012. Sun Peaks is fun, but dusty quite often with a smaller variety of trails. Big White has potential, but I ride with a range of skill level people and it is pretty focused on the more advanced riders so far. Panorama is starting to get its act together, but they have a few years of trail building to go to start drawing people back in droves. It was god-awful about 5 years ago but much better now. Kickinghorse is fun for a day. But a lot of their trails see no love the entire year which is understandable since they're so damn long and they have a small budget. Revelstoke is new, jury is out. Mt Washington on the Island is fun and I'm glad they reopened it, but it will be a while until it's up to the rest of the parks in BC.

A lot of the smaller trail centers like Valemount etc. are incredible but for people looking for a lift-accessed park with at least a few things to do after the ride and decent weather Silverstar is pretty awesome. Plus, I love Bugaboos pre-ride and hanging out with the doggo on the patio of the Bulldog afterward.

 Yep, Canmore, Jasper, Lethbridge, the Alberta side of Crowsnest Pass, all great riding areas. I haven't ridden out of BC & Alberta but I'm sure there are areas in other provinces & territories worthy of mention. As much as I like Fernie just a short drive east there is incredible riding in the Crowsnest Pass area (& way drier). Author, try to get out of the lower mainland & Okanagan area, if you're going to be BCcentric it's a huge province with a lot more to offer than the regular beaten path.

 I'm surprised that these areas didn't get mentions..

- Kananaskis / front range of the Rockies near Calgary
- Jasper National Park
- Eastern Townships of Quebec (Bromont / Sutton)

I'm from Sask, lived in Calgary for a bit and live in SW Ontario now.
It would've been nice to mention somewhere in between Calgary and Ottawa, but I get it.

Probably the most surprisingly good area, to me, was the in-city riding in Edmonton. There was great riding and lots of singletrack within the city limits. The river valley and surrounding areas were beautiful and awesome.

 @idontknowenduro: And last week the CDC (US government) released their latest best estimate of fatality rate for those who get the virus and test positive. It's about .5%. A VERY conservative estimate would be that half the people that get the virus are asymptomatic or never get tested, that makes the fatality rate .25%. Not much different than a bad flu season, but people that have said that all along were called idiots and told they were nothing less than murderers if they questioned the lockdowns.

 @smithcreek: And just like that the canadian smugness shows up.

"we don't care" "summer without international tourism will be great"

Facts don't care about your feelings. The fact is most of these bike destinations are tourism based. Do you understand how international tourism creates wealth in these communities?

Fact is Canadians home prices have dropped up to 29% and is expected to reach 50-75%. Anyone here work in home construction? www.kelownanow.com/watercooler/news/news/Real_Estate/Canadian_housing_market_will_see_a_historic_recession_in_2020_reports_CMHC

You can enjoy your grand experiment all you want. but I encourage you to reach out to your tourism departments and ask them how they feel. You really think Vail is going to pour money in to the Whistler bike park when a large part of their cliental can't get into the country?

Honestly, ask yourself, are Canadians wealthy enough to support their own country?

"Tourism is a $102-billion industry that employs about 1.8 million Canadians, according to government statistics."

I am aware it's not a fun conversation. but avoiding all risk is a little rich coming from people who ride their bikes down forested trails at speed.

 @leelau: And I'll admit to it. I'm financially tied to the Canadian Tourism economy. As a dual citizen I am lucky enough to be a part of it and work with some of your tourism departments.

How long can you keep the gate up and have a functioning economy.

 @smithcreek: People who compare it to a bad flu season ARE idiots. You have already had over 100,000 deaths in the US alone from COVID-19 in the last 3 months. The CDC estimates around 30,000 deaths from the flu per year. So yeah, it's worse than the f*cking flu.

 @idontknowenduro: Also, you need to work on reading. Transactions have dropped up to 29% so far due to people not going house shopping during lockdowns.

 @cueTIP: Oh golly, you dropped the f-bomb, I guess you have a stronger argument. LOL! As a country Canada can do whatever it wants. 3-5% mortality rate is how the doom and gloomers and politicians sold the weak willed people on national economic suicide in both countries. Now that they have destroyed the economies they will never even recognize the FACT that the rate is .25%. Twelve to twenty times less. And people like you will let them get away with it.
  • 5 7
 @cueTIP: your response is a prime example of the problem I'm trying to explain.

100k out of 330million. 90% of that number had underlying conditions.

The average age of death is 81. Higher that the average life expectancy in the us.

And 40% of that 100k happened in nursing homes due to failed policy.

50-80% of people are asymptomatic.

So based of of this, we can assume that elderly people with underlying conditions are the highest risk. Sooo we can make policies that don't crush tourism because we know what group needs to be protected and what groups can travel around.


You know what other virus has infected 3/5th of the world, 90% of those infected don't know it, and has an infant mortality rate of 60% for those babies infected with it? Herpes, but I don't see radical anti sex policies being pushed in Whistler.

The loss of Tourism is going to hurt us economically. But we are at a really good starting point and will be able to handle things better then most of our neighbours.

 @DhDWills: speaking for myself I really hope the US can work through the pandemic and various other issues.

Suffice it to say that approximately 80+% of Canadians (IpsosReid poll) agreed with the conservative approach being taken by their public health officers). There is remarkable United social consensus on this.

By reasonable inference many look askance at the patchwork US response. And there will likely be disagreement between the countries as to how re-emerge, CFR, IFR, public private sector roles, public-health measures etc. And disagreement is fine. But we (referring to that large plurality of Canadians) do not want to be part of the grand US real time laboratory experiment hence the border controls.

Of course Canada can not be autarkic. Of course there will be economic impact. But in the calculus of (pandemic-causal) loss of life vs (economic-impact) loss of life it seems Canada and Canadians want to walk their own path.

And perhaps the US, Sweden, Brazil, Belarus, Nicaragua (select countries taking a more economy-focused approach) will be "right" and that other countries have been too risk-averse. So be it. Time will tell. And collectively we will learn from the different approaches.

But until then most Canadians are satisfied with the border controls. Best wishes to all Americans and to everyone in the world of all creeds, colours, and wheelsizes
  • 1 2
 @leelau: Well said! But, how can you lump us with Brazil and the like? China travel was shutdown early on(one of the earliest countries to do so) and people said Trump was overreacting among other things. The great majority of U.S. states were completely locked down for a full 60 days.

The point of lockdown is not to stop the virus. You cannot stop an extremely contagious entity like this. The point of lockdown was to slow it (flatten the curve) so that healthcare is not overwhelmed.
  • 5 0
 @DhDWills:
The US had/has really mixed messaging. Lock downs only work if people actually listen to them. I suspect the mixed messaging caused a lot of your citizen to not take the social distancing as serious as they should have. As an outsider it looks like the US is having the worse possible out come, a lockdown that caused great economic pain but failed to stop the spread of the disease.

In BC we did not have a lock down, some businesses were closed but a lot stayed open. What happened here is by in large we had most of public buy into the messaging from our public health office. Last week we average less than 10 new case per day. Now we are in a position where things are starting to return towards normal.

Interesting tid-bit for you. BC has a huge Chinese population, we restricted travel from China pretty close to the exact same time we restricted travel from the US. Yet, we have faired way better. Italy like the US also put a travel ban on China really early....

Travel bans are only effective if a country is already doing the other hard work (testing, contact tracing, asking citizens to make the difficult decision to social distance, ect...). The travel bans that countries like the US and Italy made early on were about politics not about effective health policy. And that should be obvious from the case and mortality counts in those countries.
