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.
