Whistler Mountain Bike Park Zones

Whistler Bike Park
The Whistler Mountain Bike Park is considered the No. 1 lift accessed downhill bike park in the world, and for good reason. Boasting more terrain than any other bike park in North America with 4,900 vertical feet of lift-serviced descending trails. Beginning in 1999 with the Fitzsimmons Zone, Whistler Mountain Bike Park now features three distinct zones with over 76 km of trail for you to explore. We’ve created our zones so you can get in yours. You can find it in the perfectly formed rhythm of Fitz’s rollers, the deep tangled roots of Garbo’s single track or the volcanic rubble and thinning air of Peak’s Top of the World. Go, chase it down.

Fitzsimmons Zone

It's the original Whistler Mountain Bike Park zone with all 5 difficulty levels including the infamous A-Line, and all 5 skill centres. The Fitz Zone features a trail to suit every rider whether it’s your first time or looking to take things to the next the level. Situated on the lower slope from Whistler village up to the Olympic station at 1000m (3,300ft), here is the core energy of Whistler, spreading out from the central trails around the lifts, deep into the forests on either side as far as Crank it Up and Golden Triangle.

Garbanzo Zone

Garbanzo zone was brought on board in 2004 to complement the original Fitz zone, it raised the bar, literally to 2,700 feet of new vertical. Higher, steeper and more rugged than its predecessor. It may well be the perfect height – not too high to hit the thin air of the high alpine but high enough to keep summer temperatures cool and comfortable. The sweet spot on a hot summer day. From the tangled roots of single track on In Deep or Goat’s Gully to the berms and jumps of Freight Train this zone is sure to thrill every intermediate to advanced rider.

Peak Zone

TOP OF THE WORLD

The Peak Zone is a mind blowing experience which takes the flow that the Whistler Mountain Bike Park is famous for and drops it on the Peak of Whistler Mountain. With some of the world's best riding set against the granite spires of the Coast Range, Top of the World trail is the pinnacle of alpine riding.

Beginning at the top of the Peak Chair on Whistler Mountain, Top of the World will take you through Whistler's insane alpine environment on tacky smooth single track filled with built up berms, switchback corners and fun flowy descents along the way. The trail winds its way down the back side of Whistler Mountain, dipping into areas not even open for skiing in the winter. It bisects Highway 86 and rolls along the Peak to Creek magnum opus ski run before cutting back over to Highway 86 where it joins the Garbo Zone
