Why Join?

Joining WORCA means you care about trails and about the future of mountain biking in your community. Your membership dues support trail maintenance and advocacy, youth development and provides training and equipment to WORCA trail builders.

WORCA’s trail maintenance projects don’t stop at our municipal boundaries. Our efforts extend to trails on crown land and in areas like Pemberton and Spruce Lake in partnership with groups like the Pemberton Valley Trails Association and the Gold Bridge Trails Associaiton.

You help keep our trails OPEN!

Recently WORCA has partnered with groups like the Community Foundation of Whistler’s Environmental Legacy Fund, the Association of Whistler Area Residents for the Environment, the Whistler-Blackcomb Environmental Fund, and others to put even more resources into our local trails.

WORCA is Whistler’s mountain bike advocacy group, working with developers, governments and government agencies, utilities like B.C. Hydro, crown corporations like B.C. Rail, private land owners, timber companies and tenure holders to keep trails open to everybody — hikers, bikers, dog walkers, trail runners, everybody.

Last but not least, with more than a thousand members WORCA is a great way to meet riders around the valley. If you’re new in town or new to mountain biking, WORCA is a good place to start.
