 Honestly based on what i have seen i would rather go to silver star than whistler. I am sure whistler is the "mecca" and is an amazing place, but i feel like a lotta these other bike parks get overlooked.

 Was just riding silver star last weekend and I would say I prefer it to whistler. The only thing i like better about whislter is the jumps seem to be built a bit nicer. silver star destroys as far as berms and tech trails go tho.

 the only thing whistler might have going for it against silverstar is variety just because of how big it is, but you don't need a huge amount of variety at silverstar because you never get tired of its trails.

 I'm from kelowna and I would have to disagree... I have ridden both parks lots and silvertar is decades behind Whistler! Whistlers trails flow so much better and there are way more of them.. If you have to choose I would say for sure go to Whistler

 I am also from kelowna and i would have to ageee with the the kayo. I get a pass at silverstar most years and i also go to whistler a few times a year. When i get back from whistler i dont even want to ride silverstar. Bas makes silverstar look much better than it actually is in this video. Silverstar looks like its built by a bunch of amateurs while whistler is properly maintained and trails are always being revamped.

 Whoa now, don't go flaming the people who make your local trails happen. BC has some of the best bike parks in the world, come ride as many as you can, leave it at that.

 We arnt tryning to flame silverstar is just everyone is putting down whistler even though every saine person knows that whistler is a much better mountain. Instead if getting everyone to say silverstar is really good, make it really good it has potential. I would feel terrible if someone was tricked in to going to silverstar instead if whistler for a vaction. Thats not just because of the trails its because of the whole mountain. Whistler is designed to vacation at and silverstar is designed to go up there for one day and try to recover the next from all the break bumps

 its funny how the original comment was saying that silverstar is over looked then ever body picks sides then bashes the other

 Whistler also has a bigger budget for trail building and repairs but for what SilverStar has its my preferred park.

 I have no decent DH trails within a couple of hundred kilometres. Nah but really having a lift accessed bikepark must be just awful

 It isn't fair to compare Silverstar to whistler. Whistler has the advantage of being a short drive from the huge population base known as the lower mainland, as well as a way more developed village that people from around the world come to visit and live in. However, my problem with silverstar is that its just too flat of a mountain. I don't think silverstar is a bad mountain. It just lacks the terrain that is required to provide a well rounded bike park. Sun Peaks on the other hand is a great example of a smaller, low budget bike park that is awesome. Sure, the trails are rough, but the under-equipped and under-funded trail crew simply can't maintain it the way whistler's can. That being said, Sun peaks still has awesome jump lines and almost endless steep, natural terrain that made for one of my best summers ever.
