THINGS TO DO IN VALEMOUNT BC : MOUNTAIN BIKING

Valemount Bike Park: if you like to bike, you have to check out the network of trails. The VARDA team does an excellent job at building and maintaining the trails and there is something for everyone. If downhill mountain biking is your thing, the main bike park at the 5-mile hill has a climbing trail that starts at the bottom and can take you all the way to the top, with plenty of options to make your way back down the mountain. A great variety of green, blue, and black trails with features you can hit or ride around. If you are more into peddling and checking out the beautiful scenery, head over to the Swift Mountain side for the network of cross country trails, so many great options here, it would be hard to ride them all.
