Mountain Air Bike Skills Park

Mountain Air Bike Park

Park Closed for the Season

October 4, 2019 - The Mountain Air Bike Skills Park is now closed for the season. Check back in the spring for the April opening date next year.

This incredible bike skills park, located in the Burnaby Mountain Conservation Area, is the world’s largest and only outdoor wood pump track that is free to the public. It is a place where mountain bike enthusiasts — young and old — beginner to advanced — can challenge themselves and develop their riding skills in a safe, controlled area. A place where the integrity and conservation of the mountain environment is respected and enjoyed by everyone. The park's season is weather dependent, and is generally open from April until end of October.

Slopestyle course incorporates man-made technical trail features and dirt jumping in a course on a falling grade. The choice of the line is up to the skills of the rider. Typically these venues are built temporarily for professional competitions with no opportunity for public access. Because of this, Mountain Air Bike Skills Park’s Slopestyle course is extremely popular as there is currently no publicly accessible Slopestyle venue in the area. The Slopestyle course is for intermediate and advanced riders. 

Features

  • Beginner Area: The technical trail features are low to the ground and at the easiest end of the difficulty spectrum with no or little consequence
  • North Shore Area: Area includes a variety of technical trail features designed for various skill levels allowing for the development and progression of bike handling skills. These include a number of wooden constructed features such as skinnies, elevated ladder bridges, steel cable suspension bridge rides, balance box, drops and teeter totters
  • Dirt Pump Track: allows riders to warm up, hone their skills and “pump” their way through the course
  • Dirt Jumps: table top dirt jumps side by side running down a slope: one beginner, one intermediate and one advanced
  • Looming over the park is a 12-metre curved wooden wall ride where advanced riders can test their skills
  • Details such as difficulty rating markers (beginner, intermediate and advanced) are posted throughout the park to advise riders of the degree of difficulty.
  • Information kiosks, interpretive signs, picnic areas, toilet facilities, bike wash and a drinking water fountain are also located in the park
