WinSport Mountain Bike Park - Coming Soon

The WinSport Bike Park is a unique training area where athletes from novice to high performance can participate in bike programming and drop-ins in a safe environment.

Why are we building this terrain?

Since introducing downhill lift-accessible mountain bike trails in the mid '90s, WinSport has experienced an increase in recreational riders and participants in our mountain biking programs.

Initially, we focused on downhill biking but we have seen increased demand in trail-based programming. This increased demand has led us to believe that we need to introduce some new terrain to our campus to strengthen our programming and create opportunities for the mountain bike community in greater Calgary.

The WinSport Bike Park represents an exciting development for WinSport’s mountain bike program and community.

What are we planning to build?

The Bike Park will allow riders of all levels to lap terrain so they can practice and develop their skills and abilities. Similar to how we progress participants on snow, we want to expose our guests to increasingly challenging terrain that allows them to hone their skills and increase their confidence. Our goal is to give our guests the confidence and skill to progress to the downhill trails at Canada Olympic Park and other areas such as Canmore, Bragg Creek and the mountain-based trail systems in Fernie, Kicking Horse, Panorama and Whistler.

  • Balance bike pump track
  • Intermediate pump track

What is our expected timeline?

We are still in the planning stages as the snow continues to melt. We are planning to put shovels in the ground in April with a goal to open in July so we can use it in our summer camp programming.

Where is the park going?

We will be building the bike park on the west side of our campus, south of the west overflow parking lot. The park will be accessible via the pathways in the park and we will be working to cut some trails to provide accessibility from our mountain bike trails.

Who will be able to use the bike park?

The priority for the park will be for mountain bike programs and camps that are run by the WinSport Mountain Bike School.

A drop-in program will be available for riders of all levels so they can get some laps in and build their skills. For less experienced riders, we will have an instructor on-site to provide coaching and tips. We are also working to provide the drop-in program as an add-on to our season passholders.

If you have a group interested in renting out the park and hosting clinics, we can help there too.

We are excited to have a place where the riding community can come and use after work or between classes that is a short drive from anywhere in the city.
