Whistler Cross Country Mountain Biking
Whistler has an amazing network of cross country mountain bike trails.
From epic single track trails such as the famous Comfortably Numb trails to easy going trails perfect for the beginner around the Lost Lake trails. The cross country mountain bike trails typically open in May but this will be dependent on the snow pack.
