Video: Whistler Mountain Bike Park Set to Open May 17 With Most Opening Day Terrain Ever.


Ideal early-summer conditions allow bike park to Open A-Line, Crank-it-Up, And Crabapple hits as part of the biggest opening day ever.

In contrast with the past two spring seasons where cool spring temperatures and a deep mid-mountain snowpack made clearing trails a difficult task, this spring has been much more forgiving. The month of May has already seen a number of days with temperatures in the high 20C and even 30C range, meaning much of the snow on the lower slopes of the bike park has been melting on its own.

This opening day has been romanticized in one of the most endearing segments in mountain bike videos: Strength in Numbers – Whistler. It follows Whistler locals as they deal with winter and experience the euphoria of opening day.
