On May 20th , The Whistler Mountain Bike Park opened for the 2011 season and with all the hard work of the trail crew to get the trails clear, they had a great opening weekend. After the second snowiest winter on Whistler record, mountain bikers were able to get a lot of action! Check out a taste of that action and the cleaning of the trails from the Whistler video vault below.
Coming up this weekend The Whistler Mountain Bike Park will be opening Ninja Cougar, Karate Monkey and Easy Does It. They are working hard to get more trails open.
The legendary Crud 2 Mud DH Race takes place on Sunday, May 29th and registration is still open. Registration prior to Saturday May 28th at 2:00pm is MANDATORY through Whistler Blackcomb Guest Reservations or 1.800.766.0449.
In teams or individually, Crud 2 Mud competitors ski or snowboard from the top of Whistler Mountain to the bottom of the snow line, where their bikes and equipment lay waiting. Once out of their boots and are clipped into their bike pedals, participants race through the Whistler Mountain Bike Park on a yet to be determined trail.
The event is recommended for strong intermediate to expert skiers, snowboarders and mountain bikers, and after the race there will be an après-bike, awards and more at the Garibaldi Lift Company.
