The relationship with WORCA, which was mutually beneficial, will continue.

"That was definitely a win for us too, and we were able to increase our pass sales quite a bit from last year," said Roe.

Financially, Roe said the park is continuing to reinvest in trail development and maintenance.

"We had a good year, but instead of one machine out there building trails, we had two. We also increased the patrol side of it too. You could say that we are growing our expenses in proportion to the park, but it’s definitely proving viable."

The Whistler Mountain Bike Park will reopen next season on May 17 with MudFest, featuring the Crud to Mud Downhill event. In this event competitors ski or snowboard a GS course from the top of the Garbanzo chair to Olympic station, and then ride their bikes to Whistler Village.
