      Bike Park Closed for Season. Opens on June 20
      People don't come to Kicking Horse Bike Park to ride the same old thing. They come for the differences, and we have plenty. Not only is the park the highest in the sky of all Canadian bike parks, but it also offers the longest descent. What this means is 1200 metres (4000 ft) of stupendous variety.

      The start of it is the view from the alpine launch which is dominated by the three mountain ranges that surround the park, and the wetlands of the Columbia Valley. From there it is all downhill where the wahoo factor is amplified by multiple berms, jumps, wooden features (Stickrock has to been 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 we suspect you won't mind that. Kicking Horse also provides a selection of rental equipment as well as camp and lesson options for your biking pleasure.
