2017 Trail Day Sponsors

We are looking for businesses to sponsor our volunteer trail building sessions. If your business would like to help support the trail days, please email Nina Cairns (Director of Trails).

WORCA is proud of its comprehensive and successful trail maintenance program, to which we devote significant energy and resources. The Whistler area is home to an extensive and world-renowned network of mountain bike trails, ranging from smooth gravel to challenging steep descents. The trails are a fantastic resource for local members and a growing mountain bike tourism industry. Without ongoing maintenance, repairs and protection we risk losing this incredible amenity to erosion, degradation and in some cases competing land use.

Each year we set priorities and assign funding to a range of trail projects, which are carried out by a combination of contract trail builders and tireless, enthusiastic community volunteers. Our trail budget is allocated to contractor wages, tools and equipment, trail signage, and a few small perks for volunteers.

Riders that have any suggestions on maintenance needed in the valley please email the Trails Director with thoughts or ideas.

Creating durable and ecologically sensitive trails is a key focus of our maintenance program. WORCA works with local government and other NGOs such as AWARE, the Whistler Fisheries Stewardship Group, the Whistler Naturalists and IMBA to ensure that our contractors and volunteers perform their work to the highest environmental standards.

We usually go for 3-4 hours and bang off a project. Details on upcoming events will be listed in our member newsletters and on our website. Volunteers are asked to bring loppers, hand saws, drain digging tools (eg. pulaski or mattock) if they have them and water. It doesn’t matter if you don’t have tools or trail maintenance experience, we have plenty for everyone and will provide direction. Refreshments will be provided and all volunteers will be invited to the year-end volunteer party. Volunteers that put in 3 days of trail maintenance will be rewarded with a Whistler Mountain Bike Park ticket! Please bring work gloves and clippers if you have them. All minors must be accompanied by an adult.
