The Burns Lake Mountain Bike Park is a project developed by the Burns Lake Mountain Biking Association (BLMBA). BLMBA has been developing the park with partnership and training from IMBA Canada, Hoots Canada, and Whistler Gravity Logic. The park is comprised of 2 land use agreements. The first is a private land lease by BLMBA from the Burns Lake Community Forest and encompasses 160acres of private land owned by Burns Lake Community Forest. The second is a pilot project with the Province of British Columbia through the Ministry of Tourism, Sport and the Arts (MTSA). On the 160 acre land is the Skills Park and Jump Park designed by Jay Hoots of Hoots Canada (and Norco Factory Team rider) and built in partnership with the Burns Lake Rotary Club. The 160 acre area also has 2 freeride trails "Smells Like Bacon" and "Piglet" (that's right, we're sticking with the pig theme around Boar Mountain). The Kager Connector trail is in part on the 160 acres as well as one more yet unnamed xc trail. The 160 acre portion of the park is slated for completion in 2008 with construction of a 4 cross track, 8kms of xc trails, 2 more downhill trails and a freeride trail around slug lake inspired by Whistlers "A River Runs Through It". Already complete on the crown land portion of the park is the Kager Lake beginner xc trail and the black diamond (expert) trail "Full Boar" . Slated for 2008 is 1-3 more downhill trails (funding dependant) with shuttle access on Boar Mountain. Future developments on crown land planned are further xc routes leading off Kager Lake trail as well as an epic trail leading up Boer mountain following the Stearns Creek Canyon. Come check us out, we're easy to find and offer trails for every rider regardless of age, ability or fitness level.
