Bike Park

Bike Park

Disco Bike Park is a downhill rider’s dream designed for all levels with lift-served access featuring flow-style trails. The park is located on the backside of Discovery and drops riders approximately 1,050 vertical feet. You can choose to keep your rubber grounded or attack the built in features including wall rides, bridges, jumps, logs and drops. The park is professionally maintained to smooth out jarring ruts and wash-boarding for a true pro-style experience. Inexperienced riders will have an opportunity every Saturday and Sunday to learn new downhill skills during a 1 hour lesson starting at 11am or 1pm.

For those looking for a warm-up, there will be a hill climb for riders to access the park with hair-raising descents and plenty of single track. Riders looking just to do a lap, have the option of booking a Single Use Ticket good for a single ride on the day of their choosing. We also offer a Scenic Lift Ticket good for one ride up and down the lift for anyone who not wanting to bike that day.

Tickets/Lessons/Rentals must be purchased online. Purchases can be made online anytime, including day of. There will be no option to make any in person purchases. Please keep in mind that our bike park is limited to 100 riders/tickets per day.

Discovery MTB Code


Discovery Bike Park is not intended or maintained for novice and beginning riders. It contains pro-level features and terrain appropriate only for riders at an intermediate, advanced or pro level. Before riding always inspect your equipment or have it checked by a qualified bike mechanic.

  1. Ensure your helmet is in good shape and properly adjusted.

  3. Ensure your brakes are adjusted properly to stop your bike while descending.
  4. Front and rear axles should be tight.
  5. Headset and stem must be secure with no looseness or play.
  6. Check that your tires are in good condition, with no tears or cuts in the sidewall.

  8. Review trail maps accurately depicting mountain bike trails and appropriate levels of difficulty.
  9. Note and respect on-mountain trail signage and difficulty ratings.
  10. Sample ‘difficulty’ features at tops of runs. The most difficult feature or technical skill that a rider will face on a trail should be at the top so that it acts as a “filter” to discourage those who may not have the skill to ride that particular area.


  1. Plan and dress appropriately for the weather.  The lift may be shut down in the event of proximate lightning strikes and refunds will not be given for weather related closures.
  2. Stay in control at all times. It is your responsibility to avoid other persons and objects around you.
  3. Do not stop where you obstruct a trail or are not visible from above.

  11. Do not feed, provoke or approach wildlife.


Frequently Asked Questions

I’m new to mountain biking, can I handle this?

Disco Bike Park is a flow style course with optional features like walls, bridges, jumps and drops, but the rider can always choose to keep their tires on the ground. We are a perfect park to elevate your downhill skills if you are lacking experience. If you are new to mountain biking completely than it would be better to amp up the saddle time on cross-country style trails first.

What if I don’t own a full suspension MTB or helmet?
