Whistler Mountain Bike Park Updates

Words by Brian Finestone

It's a simple question with a less than simple answer. The good news is, lots of Fitz Zone trails will be ready to go for early opening. Sadly not all of the sections of the much anticipated and talked about Crank it Up and A-Line will not be in the mix for opening due to excessive moisture in some sections. As those trails dry out, we will open them accordingly.

Here is the breakdown as of Thursday (two days before opening):

Open:
- Lower Crank It Up, starting from Joyride Jump Park via Fantastic
- B-Line
- EZ Does It
- Del Bocca Vista
- Shady Acres
- World Cup Singletrack
- After Atlantis
- Angry Pirate (upper & lower)
- Devil's Club
- Golden Triangle
- Fantastic
- Ho Chi Min
- Ninja Cougar
- Karate Monkey
- Samurai Pizza Cat
- Smoke & Mirrors
- Blueseum
- Funshine Rolly Drops
- Wednesday Night Delight
- Dirt Merchant
- Monkey Hands
- Canadian Open (sections)
- Crack Addict
- Detroit Rock City
- Joyride
- Upper Whistler DH
- Fade to Black

Closed:
- Upper A-Line
- Crank it Up
- Dwayne Johnson
- Clown Shoes
- Schleyer
- Crabapple Turns
- Lower Canadian Open

Maybe:
- Crabapple Hits
- Lower A-Line
- Heart of Darkness
- Hornet

Lifts:
- Fitzsimmons Express will be turning as of 9:30am to bring the first riders up and will run until 5pm.
- The Whistler Village Gondola will not be open to mountain bikers.
***Also, a quick reminder that the Bike Park will be operating solely with the new RFID style passes this weekend so if you are already in town you can swing by Guest Relations to pick up your new pass and avoid the lineups on Saturday!

Most years, Dirt Merchant is one of the trails typically placed in the "closed" list. This year that is a different story and it's going to open from day one.

Check out team riders Tristan Merrick and James McSkimming run it top to bottom giving you a GoPro POV view of the full trail.
