Posted: Tuesday, May 01, 2012
The Adara, Whistler's funkiest boutique hotel, today announced they will be offering guided tours & lessons this season in the Whistler Bike Park with their very own in house personal internationally qualified guide. This is great news for the guests of the Adara as it moves towards being the most unique & friendly hotel in the Sea to Sky district.
Experience mountain biking in Whistler with our own guide!
We have now implemented a mountain bike program within the hotel which gives guests the chance to have a taste of Downhill Mountain biking with one of our very own staff. We are fortunate to have Tim Windshuttle, a highly experienced & qualified Australian MTB instructor working on our Guest Services team. He has gained years of experience working in the industry on different projects from school bike camps & programs through to coaching National Junior riders and has also competed at National and International levels with some notable results including 2011 Australian Expert Men DH National Champion.
As the bike park is often an intimidating place to beginners it will now give them the chance to experience the thrill & excitement of the park on the easier trails while staying in a safe and friendly environment.
The Whistler Mountain Bike Park offers trails for all abilities.
As this style of riding has grown in popularity so has the need to provide instruction to the thousands of people who are experimenting with or entering the sport. If you're unsure whether your ability will be suited to this style of riding, don't be afraid. The Whistler bike park has something to cater for all abilities & we can adapt the aim of the lesson & tour to ensure you get the most out of your day in the bike park. The beginners will have a blast on the wide but gentle, banked cruisers through the lush forest. The tight and twisty single track on the blue trails is perfect for intermediate riders looking to get that little extra thrill and for the armored up, full face wearing, 20kg bike group there are steep rock faces, crucial rock gardens, slippery root strewn lines, drop offs of all descriptions and more.
Let us service & clean your bikes!
The friendly service of the Adara Hotel will ensure your stay is taken care of with every aspect of your biking holiday. Once off the trails & back at the hotel the guests will also be given the option to have our staff service & clean your bikes in time for your next day in the park. We also welcome you to hang around and learn a thing or two on the tools from our mechanic. It doesn't end there, our unique lobby is constantly showing the latest and greatest biking movies from around the world to get you pumped up.
Mountain Biking has evolved rapidly since its inception in the early 1970's. Most recently advances in bike technology, rider preferences and professionally managed rider facilities have given rise to an explosion in the number of people interested in a form of mountain biking that is largely focused on descending. This is evident by the growth of ski resorts around the world transforming their summer chairlift transport enabling thousands of riders per year to access descents that cover thousands of vertical feet with Whistler Blackcomb taking charge by having the most famously renowned bike park now operating 4.5 months of the year.
We create a safe & friendly atmosphere for you to learn & improve.
Our aim is to create a safe and friendly atmosphere for guests to learn & improve the basic skills necessary for downhill mountain biking. Through qualified instruction and coaching techniques we teach the skills which can be adapted from other styles of riding. The advanced riders can experience the quality modern trails and features that the bike park has to offer through a professionally guided tour.
