Transportation & Accommodations
2017 Details. *Subject to Change for 2018
We start in beautiful North Vancouver and end in the unforgettable resort town, Whistler. Your travel between these points during the race is included.
If you are flying in, please book your flights to the Vancouver International Airport (YVR), from YVR, you’ll be able to take a cab or public transit to North Vancouver.
TRAVEL PLANNING MADE EASY
We strongly recommend that you arrive with plenty of time to spare. The extra couple days to explore the trails, fix up your bike, and sort out your gear will pay off during race week!
You will want to schedule your outbound flight from YVR and book a shuttle or other transportation from Whistler to the airport.
