UPDATED Apr 29, 2023
As we get into the biking season for 2023, we start to think about where we want to bike—from our favourite backwoods trails to the mountainous peaks that are only accessible via chairlifts from resort bike parks.
But summer only lasts so long and many of us have a limited budget for mountain biking. With the prices of gas these days, who doesn’t need to pinch some pennies?
So how can you afford to hit all the best mountain bike trails this summer? Read on for the best deals we could find on lift-serviced mountain biking in Alberta and BC for summer 2023.
How to save on mountain biking this summer
Figuring out the best deals can be a major chore when all you want to do is get out and bike, but don’t worry we’ve done the heavy lifting. We’ve pulled together season passes, discount cards, and more so that you can spend more time ripping killer lines in the bike park and less scrolling on the internet.
There are two important things you need to keep in mind when deciding what pass is right for you: how many days you plan on getting out and where you want to go.
Bike Park season passes
The big one: season passes. It usually comes down to what is closest to home, but what if you are near a few mountains or you are thinking of spending the summer away from home. We’ve got you covered with a few options that come with some great bonus perks to help find the best deals.
