British Columbia's lift-access mountain bike parks are among the best in the world.

There is no better place to maximize your vert than at a bike park in BC.

Kicking Horse Mountain Resort Bike Park

Kicking Horse Mountain Resort Bike Park

People don’t come to Kicking Horse Mountain Resort to ride the same old thing. They come for the differences, and the resort has plenty—over 3,700 feet of variety. The view from the alpine launch alone is worthy of a trip—with three piercing mountain ranges and the wetlands of the Columbia Valley. From there it is all downhill and the wahoo factor is amplified by multiple berms, jumps, wooden features (Stickrock has to be ridden to be believed), rock slabs (look directly below the gondola to see the longest), and plenty of good ol’ white-knuckle singletrack. The only thing missing is crowds, but most don't mind that.
