    Exciting Summer Ahead for Racers and Riders at Panorama

    Panorama Mountain Village is set to open the new Mad Trapper trail in preparation for the five major races and events this summer.

    The Mad Trapper is 6km in length and offers cross country riders singletrack at Panorama. The trail fills the gap between the leisurely Valley Trail & Delphine loop and downhill riding in the Panorama Bike Park.

    The Gatorade Canada Cup and Gatorade BC Cup cross country races will launch the new trail by bringing in more than 400 riders over two weekends.

    Panorama will also host three major downhill bike races attracting riders from across Canada, US and abroad. Spectators are encouraged to come out and watch Canada’s best riders compete for the title of National Champion. The Canada Cup finals at Panorama marks the race series’ 20th season. The BC Cup provides riders an opportunity to prepare for national and international events. The bike race schedule is as follows:

    Gatorade BC Cup Cross Country - July 2, 2011
    Canadian Downhill Mountain Bike Championships - July 20-24, 2011
    Gatorade Canada Cup Cross Country - July 30, 2011
    Canada Cup Downhill - July 31, 2011
    BC Cup Downhill - July 31, 2011

    To the Hale Hut and back loop the trail and takes about 1-2 hours round trip. The trail is used in the winter as a Nordic trail so the difficulty is moderate. It is described as a wide trail with short hill climbs and easy to walk if necessary. More information can be found on our website at:

    I've heard that the hotels at the hill don't allow bikes in the rooms and bike storage is off-site and costs extra, is this true? If so that isn't a great motivator - I'm not keen on having my bikes out of sight...
