Brand New Skatepark

Two years in the making and a brand new skatepark has just opened in Whistler! Built in 1991, Whistler’s original snake run/bowl focused on speed and flow and was perfect for Whistler’s growing community of snowboarders who came to carve Whistler’s legendary powder. Whistler’s first public skate facility, the snake run/bowl is now considered among the best in the world.

In 2014 local skater Mike Klinkhamer decided to organize a fundraiser and light the flames of passion under Whistler’s skate community in hopes of completing the park.

It is now the 2nd largest skatepark in Canada and over 50,000 sq ft!
