Whistler Mountain Bike Park Opening Delayed

May 14, 2020

The Whistler Mountain Bike Park has unsurprisingly been forced to delay the opening of the park for the 2020 season due to COVID-19. Usually, the park opens on the Friday before May Long Weekend, which means that Whismas and the high fives and long lift lines that accompany it were initially planned for tomorrow.

While there are signs the COVID-19 curve is flattening in British Columbia, the provincial order limiting public gatherings to 50 people or less remains in place and so the Whistler Mountain Bike Park has delayed its opening day indefinitely. From the bike park's statement on Instagram, it sounds like they are still working on a plan to reopen this season, unlike some other bike parks like Ontario's Blue Mountain, which is closed for the entirety of the 2020 season.


bigquotesLike you, we are eager to kick off the 2020 season in the bike park, but due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, our opening day of May 15th, will be delayed. Our team is hard at work coming up with a plan to reopen Whistler Blackcomb. We have to do it responsibly, under the guidance of the provincial health authority and working with our industry associations and stakeholders. Your safety and the safety of our employees and community is our first priority. When we do reopen, this careful and measured approach will be reflective of our new reality. We’ll have more in the coming weeks. Keep checking back here for the latest information. Together, we’ll get back to doing what we love in this new normal and we’ll have you riding the trails as soon as we can.Whistler Mountain Bike Park

 Fingers crossed for the Whistler Bike Park to open as soon as they are allowed and is safe to do so. Not only do I miss that beautiful chunk of mtn, the myriad of wicked trails hand and machine built there, but also the cool mix of mtb characters that congregate there to shred!! Hopefully see you soon WBP...our Minions are ready!!!

 Off course it is safe to open Whistler... it's quite unsafe for Whistler if it doesn't open. Bancruptcy of businesses is a rather sad view at first which then progresses into traumatic view, it's just that News don't show it yet, everyone still has vivid images from ER, touching stories of deaths and survivals. Please people, visualize companies closing down, shops getting closed and moving out, property owners having nobody paying the rents, parts of cities slowly but surely becoming ghosts towns, cities getting less taxes not maintaining streets - hopes, prayers, putting health above money - yeah it does work for short term, but in the long run you can stuff it up your a*sholes because you definitely can't stop it up your mouth or accounts of people sending you bills to pay. Whoever says those holistic wonderful compassionate thoughts - are you perared to give money to laid off people? Give home to poor people who may just become homeless? - I thought as much.

One of the most profound experiences in life, mentioned everywhere by people with near death experiences: it is ok to die. Except this is not even an incredibly deadly disease... ugh... Can we all please push on politicians to stop this madness and normalize the situation by at least 75%? I don't need to travel to Ibiza and dance in a club so close I can slick somoene's sweat - I want full freedom for everyone to be outdoor and travel to be outdoors. it's a matter of health of the greater population in all possible ways, not just poor folks being at the risk of getting seriousy sick from Covid. I don't need to have a buffee in a hotel restaurant open. I need basic possibility to mvoe around and have basic accomodation services.

 @WAKIdesigns: Yea how about if someone wants to stay holed up in their house wearing a mask we let them but this locking down healthy people is just stupid. People just are not thinking ahead of the financial ramifications of no money circulating even if it doesn't affect them right now it will in the future if this persists. And govts, can't keep giving money to people to stay locked up at home without services provided by them being cut out almost completely or severely curtailed in the future. No taxes no services it really is easy to understand.

 Open when safe? safe from what, the virus? that's gonna be around for years. You know whats not safe? Unemployment for 40% of the population and bankruptcies everywhere because nature does its nasty little thing every 100 years. Humans can't control everything.

You can't live in a bubble and stats show its causing deaths in people with high blood pressure and diabetes as the top 2 health conditions...self inflicted.

We need to protect the elderly the best we can and go on with our lives the best we can while they work on a vaccine.

 Injury prevention on A-line and DM: change at least 2 tables counting from each fireroad crossing to doubles and dig ditches on sides of jumps so that it is impossible to roll beside the doubles. Hafjell did it on 2nd jump on lower roller coaster - weeds out vast majority of Joeys willing to roll the "big jumps". Right now you only find Joeys rolling the upper one. Me and my friend almost landed on the head of one when riding up there. Idiot was just walking behind the jump.

 @WAKIdesigns: a purely selfish view from you. One death is one too many until the R number is well below 0.5 we will just cause a second spike...Furlough is in place in the UK and an economy will recover, Try telling a relative of a victim its not about the death its about the finance..
  • 14 4
 @kmreid66: oh well, that's quite selfish and short sighted of you. "economy will recover", so will the close ones of 0.01% like they have always done. Now tell it to millions of unemployed that you wanted to save grandpa. Tell it to families of people who deal with domestic violence, families of people who will become alcoholics, smokers, returning alcoholics, people getting all sorts of unhelathy lifestyle habits due to staying at home, depressed due to loss of jobs, businesses which they were building for years. most small businesses run on few percent of profit, no sht they will go down- It's not "economy" - it's people's lives we are talking about. I'm sure you're fine sucking on govs titty, but guess what it is working people adding milk to that tittie. Every month the prognosis gets worse and worse and worse. Just like the death count. % of growth or decline are not as emotional as skewed infection/death count numbers. Right now big companies are still suckign on the titty, but at some point stuff has to be taken out of the ground, made into something and sold. Money don't come from the printer.

 @Dlakusta: also, quite ironic for local gov to encourage Whistler to postopone. I am waiting for someone like let's say Travis Pastrana say Nitro Circus closed due to safety precautions related to COVID Big Grin Emil J is probably coming to our dirt jumps today I will tell him ONLY single backflips and max rotation 360! Oh no - three barspins - the safe limit was two, you selfish bastard! BTW Emil - #drinkwater

 @kmreid66: You’re so virtuous and care so much about human life, but you seem to be cheering for lockdowns causing food shortages, which will cause millions of people to die and make covid numbers look laughable. Anybody in favor of a blanket lockdown at this point is a science denier, plain and simple.
Frustrating when you know the fools that want to virtue signal about people’s safety, drive cars while texting like complete idiots, endangering so many people in a very real way.

 Whistler is a surprising Value for the price. $865 for the season of 70+ trails, Deer Valley out here in Utah costs near $500 for a blue jump line, black jump line, a green flow trail, and a slew of late 90's tech trails among maybe 3 or 4 other blue flow trails.

 on sundays I elude the eyes, and hop the turbine freight
to far outside the wire where
my white haired uncle waits

jump to the ground as the turbo slows
to cross the borderline
run like the wind as excitement shivers up and down my spine!
down at his park
my uncle preserved for me
a custom sled
of carbon fiber
to keep it as new
has been his dearest dream.

I strip away the old debris
that hides the shining bike
a brilliant santa cruz
for a weekends thrilling ride
we'll buckle on our downhill pads
and check our brakes are bled
then minions burping gravel I
commit my weekly shred!!

He made beautiful music, wrote beautiful songs, and was perhaps the biggest key to the band's success. He makes every song complex both musically and lyrically. Forever a legend.

 Even if Whistler and other bike parks were to open tomorrow, getting there from a different country through a border or customs without restrictions is likely to be a pain in the ass. Especially coming from a country where people are saying f@#k the virus and choosing to ignore it. Let alone the sanitation of everything especially in a bike park where people are constantly sharing the lifts... I'm not at all hopeful that a vaccine will eradicate this thing. We still haven't found a cure for the seasonal flu so chances are were gonna have to learn to live with this disease.

Now I’m no stranger to a climb. 2-2.5k is pretty routine for me, but doubling up? Whew! I’ve been there in Whistler — that mountain is huge. Most of the ski areas here in Colorado are about 3,500 vertical, with the bike parks starting well below that. These mountains here in CO aren’t small mountains. I don’t think people realize how much climbing 5k feet is by comparison. Or know that Whistler is even as big as it is.

But if anyone wants to do it, go for it.

 Can a whistler local explain why the park opens so late? When does the snow melt?
  • 1 0
 glacier up top never melts, upper garbonzo is typically closed until weeks after 'opening' from snow and water issues. Ive seen some pics from years back where the trails are carved into the snowpack only weeks before 'opening'.
  • 1 0
 2011 only a couple of trails opened and they had to be machine dug out. Riding Aline with snow walls and lots of snow melt run off was muddy for weeks. crankworx was in July and they had to hand dig the garbanzo race track so it had time to melt for the race (pre peak Enduro days)

 OK so first and foremost this is a ski resort and the bike trails happen to be on the north slope of the Whistler foothills, opening mid May IMHO is way early and lucky to happen any bike season ( it takes a herculean effort to prepare the trails ) . Even with the snow melting on the open meadows the trails deep in the woods usually have several cm's of left over snow and this is when the small backhoe and manual labour go in to clear it. So now you have the trails being cleared but the heaviest melt is yet to come pouring off the alpine.. this results in torrents of water overflowing the creeks and ditches and don't forget this is a rain forest. So over this May 16,17,18 weekend we had our usual mix of cloud , rain and a little sun.. would have, could have, been a great weekend to open but there is no work being done on any trail that I can see from the bottom. Within a few weeks the valley gets very warm, the upper slopes have melted off and by mid to late June it's game on mother F'er.. at least that's a typical opening. This year... at the moment all bets are off. I'm a skier first and biker second... and right now I'm not even sure what next snow season will look like.. although Vail is already prompting us for our winter pass payment... and I haven't seen any email asking me for bike park payment. I will not make any guess for summer or winter activity. Just have to wait it out along with everyone else.

 @jgladiuk: cheers for clearing that up for me. So basically everything’s still covered in snow and they actually have to dig the trails out to fix them up so they can open the park?
  • 1 0
 @thenotoriousmic: well that might be overstating it a bit, but if your planning a trip over sometime, dont book for opening week, I'd say last week June, even mid july and on to be able to access majority of trails. it is high alpine and the weather is totally different than the valley bottom.

 @lifted-d: isn’t every mountain biker planning a trip to whistler? Haha. Maybe next year though. Wink

 @thenotoriousmic: all clear of snow mid way up right now which is top of Fitz... top of Garbo will still have several cm is most shaded areas. More importantly though the PM and Pres just announced another 30 day extension for the border being closed and no travel into Canada from Europe as well.
"Canada-U.S. border to remain closed to non-essential travel for another month, PM says it's the 'right thing'
I think our PM is looking to NZ and Auz as examples of success in tamping down Covid 19.. it'll never be gone but he just wants to get a handle on it before opening up. That leaves Vail and the bike park with another 30 days to sort out how to comply with physical distancing which the governments are calling for. They are probably re-writing the pass waiver to include Covid .
