Kelowna to host inaugural Freeride Days at Big White bike festival

The four day mountain biking event comes July 11 to 14

Big White Resort is almost ready for the season’s turnaround.

The inaugural Freeride Days event kicks off July 11 and will host four days of mountain biking competitions, races, and skill tests.

Big White ends the snow season after Easter weekend, and is getting ready for the rising interest in mountain biking.

“There should be more events in B.C. celebrating this elite level of mountain bike riding in various forms including slopestyle, downhill, AirDH, and other events. The thing about mountain biking is that there are so many ways that people enjoy it… There’s more to come,” said president and Big White CEO Peter Plimmer.
