Whismas 2024 Trail Report

It’s almost go-time, riders! Whistler Mountain Bike Park opens for its 25th anniversary season this Friday, May 17. This summer, we’re looking back on the history of the park through our #ProgressIsThePurpose campaign and encourage guests to join in using this hashtag when sharing content on social media. The anniversary will also bring many exciting surprises and activations throughout the summer – stay tuned for more information. 

New this year, the freshly upgraded Fitzsimmons Express chairlift boasts the capability of transporting riders and bikes on the same chair, eliminating the need to use separate carriers as done in previous years. This increase in uphill capacity will be a gamechanger for WMBP guests looking to quickly access the popular Fitz Zone. We’re also stoked to offer a brand new, top-of-the-line rental fleet through our partnership with COMMENCAL. Additionally, the Gatorade Skills Zone has received two new trails, allowing more opportunity for riders to safely hone their skills. Other highlights include the return of the Phat Wednesday race series, and Crankworx Whistler – one of the world’s largest mountain bike festivals – taking center stage at WMBP from July 19 to 28. 

Season Passes and single-day lift tickets are available for purchase with early bird pricing available until this Sunday, May 19.

Operations Plan:

  • Fitz Zone open May 17 through October 14, 2024.
  • Creekside Zone open June 8 through September 22, 2024.
  • Garbo Zone open June 8 through September 29, 2024.
  • Peak Zone/Top of the World opening date TBD due to conditions. It will run through September, 2.

Trail Report for Opening Day:

Trail crew has been hard at work over the last month prepping the Bike Park for opening weekend. Trails are running smoothly, and there’s a ton of variety for riders on opening day. Staff picks for opening weekend are BLINE and Crank it Up, which are both in incredible shape. Due to maintenance work that took place in the fall and some heavy rainfall at lower elevations this winter, we had to hand-pack all machine trails which has delayed the opening of ALINE zones 1-4 slightly. Trail Crew is currently working on Zone 4 and will move up from there – it won’t be too much longer. Stay tuned to our social channels for updates.

Knowing which trail to ride next has now been made clear with the Trail Progression Scale. This handy tool separates technical and freeride trails and lists them from Beginner to Pro Line in the correct order of their difficulty.
