Creek ZoneGet amongst it
Free, easy parking in Whistler - what? Yes, thats right. Creekside parking is free and located less than a minute from the bottom of the Creekside Gondola. If you're driving up from anywhere South of Whistler then Creekside parking is going to save you valuable time that could be spent riding. More time = more laps, more laps = the path to awakening.
Worried about having your bike on the roof with underground parking? Pull into the above-ground lot, unload your bike, get your gear on, drop the car in underground parking and be on your way. No more slog on the DH rig through the day lots in the village. And don't worry about finding a spot, there is plenty to go around. Unlike parking in the village lots, your car will be cool and comfortable underground, unlike in the village where you can expect a sauna of dank bike gear and boiling Snickers bars.
Sure, downing a cold one on the deck of the GLC is great, but if you're looking for tasty BBQ, huge patio real-estate and good music, then Dusty's is where its at. Located right at the bottom of the Creekside Gondola, Dusty's history is as deep as it is epic. Named after a stuffed horse used for pranks around town in the 70's, Dusty's is a place that puts the Wild back into your West. Party time, excellent.
While on the mountain, don't forget about Raven's Nest Restaurant at the top of the Creekside Gondola. Now open year-round, Raven's Nest has a diverse menu for hungry Bike Park riders. Vegan, Vegetarian and other menu options are available, so is a beautiful valley-facing deck to mow down on.
No riding location is complete without a good bike shop. The newly opened Creekside GBB is the place to stop for bikes, gear, service and more. It's exactly like the Village version, only less busy. Your Bike Park Pass gives you discounts that make it reasonable to justify that extra patty on your burger at lunch.
Accessing the Bike Park via Creekside is recommended for advanced and expert riders only. No beginner trails will be accessible via the Creekside Gondola.
