In Sun Peaks, we're passionate about mountain biking
It was 21 years ago when we first started scraping trails into Tod Mountain by hand. Inspired by the fast emerging scene in the biking mecca of nearby Kamloops, we never imagined we were building the first stages of a world-class bike park. Over the years our trails became steeper and more technical, pushing bikes and their riders to their limits.
These raw singletrack trails remain at the core of our riding experience, but times have changed and the Bike Park is evolving. While we still embrace the rowdy nature of our trails that draw riders here to test themselves on infamous lines like Insanity One, Gnar-Boom, and Smitty’s Steeps, we’re now focusing on opportunities for newer riders to feel welcomed into the world of mountain biking.
new trails galore!
Over the past two years we’ve dedicated our efforts to improving progression in the park in order to create a trail network that every level of rider will enjoy. For beginners, we opened a Progression Park for skills development, accessible by carpet lift, giving even the youngest shredders a taste of lift-accessed riding. Paired with our 9km green progression trail 'Level Up' and our remodelled green trail ‘Switcheroo’, newer riders can build skill and confidence comfortably.
The additions of flowy intermediate jump trails 'Canada Line' and 'Bermalade' were a big hit in 2019, introducing a brand new set of riders up here to the concept of air time, while the completion of the new middle section of ‘Steam Shovel’ gives us a truly iconic addition to the lineup of legendary advanced jump trails in BC.
As the lift-access Bike Park evolves, so does riding throughout all of Sun Peaks, with a small but growing network of cross country trails spreading across the valley thanks to the hard work of the Sun Peaks Recreational Trail Association, a dedicated group of community trail builders.
We truly believe riders of all levels will find their new favourite trail in Sun Peaks, so join us in 2020 to discover yours!
