What You Need To Know About Mountain Biking At Revelstoke Mountain Resort.

With so much excitement building around the first mountain bike trails here at Revelstoke Mountain Resort, we're getting a flood of questions from our dedicated fans on social media. To cure your curiosity, we've answered the most commonly asked questions about the introduction of mountain biking at RMR.

How Much descending?

Our signature trail, Fifty Six Twenty descends our entire vertical with 5,620 feet (1,713 metres) over 15 kilometres.

Is Fifty Six Twenty a downhill or enduro mountain bike trail?

Fifty Six Twenty is accessed via The Stoke Climb trail, which gains 518 metres in elevation over 7km. It will take an average of 1-2 hours to climb. Once you get to the Fifty Six Twenty trailhead, it's all downhill from there.

Can I skip the uphill climb and just do downhill laps on Fifty Six Twenty?

No. The Stoke Climb section to access Fifty Six Twenty is mandatory. Please respect the trails and all trail signage. Any riders found off of the designated trail will have their pass revoked.

What kind of bike can I ride at Revelstoke Mountain Resort?

Due to the mandatory climb, we highly recommend bringing an enduro, a cross country or an e-bike for this season. Our rental shop will be offering enduro and e-bike rentals from Specialized and Pivot. For pricing and information, check our website here.

Fifty Six Twenty is a machine built blue flow trail with lots of jumps, hips and large berms. Jump skills are required and you're required to have at least an intermediate skill level to ride the trail.

When will Revelstoke Mountain Resort open official downhill mountain bike trails?

We have a trail crew working on downhill specific trails as we speak which we're hoping to have open for next season. Keep watching our social media accounts for updates about new trails we're building and other developments around the resort.

Don't forget that locals save 30% on day passes at the resort by showing proof of local address at the ticket window. Have more questions? Send a message through social media, email, or call Guest Services. Happy riding and thanks for being part of opening our first mountain bike trails!
