We recently shared a blog post featuring beautiful trails to hike in Whistler during fall. As we were writing the post, we started thinking about all the amazing mountain biking in Whistler during the fall (beyond the bike park) as well.
Some people assume biking in Whistler is done for the season once September rolls around and the kids go back to school. While it is true that the Whistler Mountain Bike Park hours significantly reduce (and completely closes by around Canadian Thanksgiving), mountain biking in Whistler during the fall is enjoyable and accessible right up until the snowline reaches the trail.
Mountain Biking in Whistler During the Fall is One of the Best Seasons to Ride
Mountain biking in Whistler during the Fall is one of the best times to ride due to the superb terrain, comfortable temperatures, and fewer riders on the trails.
We asked team Nita to list their favorite mountain bike trails to ride in Whistler during the fall and compiled all the top picks. We got a variety of trail categories- so we took the top 3 picks of each difficulty ranging from beginner’s green to advanced double black.
