Of particular frustration to those of us on the right hand side of the Atlantic as we are pretty much locked out of travelling unimpeded to BC but for those that are not this is better news. If you averaged out the world’s MTB bucket lists, it’s a safe bet that Whistler will up towards the top. So when the park opens for the first time after the pandemic lockdown it qualifies as news.
We have a guy on the ground in Whistler. Chris Eyres has not only reviewed a few snowboards for us over on our Snow channel but he actually lives in Whistler. We love him and hate him for that in equal measure. Chris gets to spend his winters on a board and summers on two wheels and so he’s perfectly positioned to tell us about the reopening and what it means for visitors to arguably the most famous MTB park in the world. Check out his video report below.
Highlights of the opening are…
- No evening openings of the park (usually the 5-8pm period)
- No access to the top of the mountain and trails from the peak
- No A-line or other big trails (to keep A&E quiet)
- Same ticket price as usual
