The Hinton & District Chamber of Commerce would like to recognize the Hinton Mountain Bike Association and the great work they are doing to make Hinton Alberta’s Mountain Bike Mecca!

This community led initiative to was to build an outstanding mountain bike skills park that is fun, safe, free of charge, and accessible for all abilities and ages, thereby facilitating the promotion of skills development, active lifestyles and mountain culture.  

Having a skill park allows for users to “session” bike features many times in short time frames, thereby improving riding skills in a safe and structured environment. By being the first of its kind in the Yellowhead region, we hope this facility will be a regional hub for activity.

The Bike Park was made possible by the Hinton Mountain Bike Association (HMBA) and the Town of Hinton.

The Nordic Centre is an amazing ski facility for our citizens and for visitors who bring tourism dollars to town.

The trails have been recently upgraded to provide enjoyable skiing on novice to expert trails which have hosted national and world events. The club has an active Jackrabbit, Biathlon, and youth race program.

The Centre has recently added a warmup cabin on a beautiful sunny viewpoint, a new novice trail, and many upgrades to the biathlon range that hosted last year’s North American and Canadian National Biathlon Championships.
