The newest Mtn Bike Park to be built in BC is the Coast Gravity Park located on the Sunshine Coast near Sechelt and will open in 2014. The park is built by riders for riders and will bring riders an ear to ear smile. This will be the only year round gravity park in the Northwest, built below the snow line to give mountain bikers their adrenaline fueled fill anytime of the year.
The Coast Gravity Park is being created by the Coastal Crew, an international know trio of riders, film makers and builders. They are Dylan Dunkerton, Curtis Robinson and Kyle Norbraten who have produced the film ” From the Inside Out” and the new movie ” Arrival” This group has built trails for Brandon Semenuk as well as others in the elite rider/ video group.
After riding other resorts and building they have decided to create the most rider friendly trails in BC. They had a Media day and invited their friends to come and try out what shovel to dirt has produced in golden dirt to date, 4 trails from expert to intermediate full of berms , tables and fresh loam had everyone smiling.
When the Coast Gravity Park officially opens in the fall of 2014 you can be sure riders will come to this new mountain bike mecca carved out the forest and dirt of the Sunshine Coast. It is supported by the local community and investors who are sure it will enhance local tourism and bring the spotlight to this area of beautiful British Columbia.
