Tourism Whistler, which promotes the resort as a bike destination, supports funding for trails and cycling infrastructure.
"Tourism Whistler can't speak to trail development plans and funding, however, we are aware that many competitors — not just Steamboat — are investing in developing their mountain bike product," said Patricia Westerholm, manger of corporate communications, in an email. "Whistler has established itself as the global leader for mountain biking, not just with Whistler Blackcomb's world-class bike park, but the extensive cross-country trails, as well as the Valley Trail network. Continuing to invest in evolving our mountain bike offering is important to ensure we remain the market leader."
