Whistler Mountain Bike Park

According to statistics, more than 100000 Mountain bike enthusiasts come to Whistler Mountain bike Park from May to September every year, while the total population of Whistler is less than 10000. So, during our days in Whistler, we have seen numerous mountain players every day, regardless of gender, age, and time (as if they don't have to work, enviable).

When riding the cableway up the mountain, I unexpectedly encountered several tourists from China, including a young man and three elderly people. They were fully armed and were pushing DH bikes to ride up the mountain. At first glance, they were people who had no experience riding DH bikes because they were still wearing leather shoes. However, there is no need to worry. The track in Whistler Mountain Park has a clear difficulty classification. Each route has its own name and color classification. Green represents the simplest route, blue represents the intermediate route, black represents the advanced route, and the route overlapped by two spades represents the most difficult route. The most interesting thing is that the routes here are not always the same. Every time you go to a resting place, there are different route options available, which is really exciting.


Even if you don't bring a car, it's okay. The square at the foot of the mountain is surrounded by bike shops, and most of them have bicycle rental services. DH cars, full helmets, armor and other products are all available, very convenient. During my few days in Whistler, I happened to encounter a weekend, and many office workers from the surrounding cities of Whistler also joined the cycling army in DH. Those with less experience would choose to sign up for teaching classes. Therefore, various training venues are also prepared in the mountain park, from the simplest crossing of a single wooden bridge to a flying platform, with experienced drivers providing guidance, which of course requires payment. On the way, I met a teaching class with a uniform group of women, some of whom seemed to be in their 50s. However, their enthusiasm for practicing flying platforms was really high, and I had to marvel that women were also crazy.


Although there are many cyclists, this place is also a model of harmonious coexistence between the environment, animals, and people. Even before I went to Whistler, someone told me that I might encounter bears and other animals. Sure enough, I did encounter bears several times in the past few days. Most of them were mother bears and baby bears foraging, and they were only a hundred meters away from the foot of the mountain. Both parties did not disturb each other and lived in harmony. However, when you encounter a bear, it's better to dodge as soon as possible, safety first.
