 @kashima. Always wanted to ride there. But whistler nuts. Up at the peak you have 2000 vertical meters of pure gravity riding... And more trails than the human mind can process

 Going for my 40th...constantly day dreaming about it

 Guys the size really doesn't matter...it's all about how you use it Wink

 Guys, you have to come to Germany. The bikeparks here are as big as the rookie course in Whistler Big Grin :p In 2011 i´ve made an Roadtrip. Sun Peaks, Silverstar and last but not least Whistler! The Days in all these parks were amazing! After 3 Weeks of ridin in Canada, i headed back to germany and damn.....the size does matter of a park! Bikepark Winterberg´s longest Trail --> 2-3min. Then how long are the Tracks in Whistler or Silverstar!? I´ve driven about 10min from Top to Bottem!

My Friends in Canada ------ what i would like to say, that you´re the lucky Drivers, with that much potential in your Tracks and Parks. Germany is far away from this!

peace!

 Chicksands bike park isn't that big but its packed with different trails and disiplines... so no size does not matter!
  • + 2
 I think I'd rather have a huge park with a ton of killer trails than a small park with a few killer trails. Size and quality both matter.
  • + 1
 That's a fair point

 mmm whistler

 100mm definitely sounds better than 4 inches...just saying

 Duthie hill in Issaquah wa is a small park that is a full progression park. You can start on your first mountain bike and use the whole park to learn massive jumps. It's a great place I call home to ride. It's not whistler or stevens but it packs a punch for a small place
  • + 2
 i still havent made out to duthie, damnit
  • + 3
 and it is a free county park!
  • + 2
 yes, and it is free and year round! I really hope the Cheasty greenspace bike park opens up. Having 2 year round bike parks in Seattle and 15 min away will be awesome.

 Well... Mammoth, CA is huge, but it has a lot of runs I consider to be throw-aways. Trail conditions can be rough there too. Angelfire, NM is smaller but the runs are mostly mindblowing. I like Angelfire better.
  • + 2
 Yea agreed, Mammoth is pretty shot out. Snow Summit is on the rise, better soil great location. Probably why Mammoth Mtn just bought them out!

 Based on my experience at the coast gravity park, neither the size, nor the lift mechanism, made any difference: the trails were fantastic and the vibe relaxed.
  • + 2
 I'm heading to Coast Gravity next summer with a group of guys from here in Colorado. We are really excited get our tires in that dirt. So pumped. That place looks like pure fantasy land.
  • + 1
 It's amazing - definitely smaller / shorter trails, but no braking bumps and not too crowded. Amazing vibe too - super relaxed. I'm sure you'll love it!
  • + 7
 The only thing that matters is the size of your wheels
  • + 2
 In this case, the smaller the better.

 I'll bring my skateboard

 Razor scooter, anyone?

 Size doesn't matter as much as price and accesibility. If I had a cheap two run lift near my house I would be happier than a turkey on black friday.
  • + 2
 Does size of the park matter? Well it all depends what is offered at the park, that in my opinion, is the decipling factor. There can be dozens of crap runs that I don't want to ride, or one or 2 good runs that make the entire day worth it.
  • + 3
 I don't mind one fun good run it's all good, bike park I know of has a 30 sec downhill run a 4x track and a dirt jump line and I'm more then happy to ride there all day!
  • + 3
 Highland is amazing and it under 1000' vertical. A great Trail Crew and a great vibe. It's has everything you need to ride!
  • + 4
 Awesome video! As long as the park allows for progression it's a winner in my book.
  • + 4
 It's strange to film a bike park and doesn't show any people going down the hill
  • + 1
 my thoughts exactly. Filmed the ride up, then cut to messing about on the jumps at the bottom. Whats with that?
  • + 1
 Small bike parks are good as long as they cover all of the based our local park (Te Miro) is a good example of this. It is small but DH tracks, big dirt jumps, modest jumps, flowey bermed tracks, technical rooty sections.
  • + 1
 Coast Gravity Park in Sechelt, BC was my best experience. The vibe was very chill, there was no groms skidding out berm or rolling all the jumps and all the pros were very humble. The trails were in miraculous condition
  • + 2
 Man up an ride the old rampage site that'll keep you entertained for a long time
  • + 2
 that place looks incredibly fun and scenic...rep your scene and you'll create the vibe that others will flock to.

 Snow summit has three trails and it still my favorite

 No it does not matter. Sometimes you can session one single jump the whole day. I prefer the park with the best lines
  • + 2
 That cooked trout looked delicious.
  • + 2
 Think vertical, size does matter! Whiteface Mountain, Wilmington, NY
  • + 1
 I think this is my favorite park of the east simply for the steep natural long runs.
  • + 0
 It's not the size of the park that matters, it's how you can use what's available for learning and progression. Can't be spoon fed perfection!

 What's the song? Shazam is failing me and it isn't in the credits.

 Size doesn't matter but how you 'ride' it, does.

 I say go big

 ...or go home.

 Quality of the operation matters most.

 Yeah Mike, you make us Sarner proud! No place like home.
