Mountain Biking

Bike and Equipment Rentals

Get out for a heart-pounding adrenaline rush or a leisurely scenic ride. The 2013 season brings much-anticipated upgrades and expansions to Blue Mountain’s biking trails. Developed in partnership with Gravity Logic (builders and designers of the Whistler Bike Park), two new trails and the rebuild of an old favourite will welcome riders this summer. Trail one, machine built with a green difficulty rating, is an excellent playground for beginners. Trail two, for intermediate biking, is an offshoot into low wood features. Haole Trail also received a complete facelift, with alignment changes and a series of new natural and man-made features. So whether you’re just starting out or have years of experience under your wheels, Blue Mountain Bike Park is the place to ride this summer!

No equipment? No problem! Blue Mountain offers a full fleet of comfort, trail and downhill rental bikes — bike rental protection is also available. Located in the Activity Central Building, the rental shop has a bike for riders of every age, size and skill level.
