Located in the centre of Whistler Village, Evolution has been a core part of Whistler's riding community for over 25 years. We offer the most premium performance gear across both retail and rental for riding Whistler's Mountains, snow or bike.
Evolution Whistler opened July 1st 1995. The winter before, an energetic 21 year old wrote the business plan and saved up some funds working in Japan as a ski instructor (and racing snowboards in her spare time). Returning to her home town, Whistler, Jenine secured a prime location in the village and Evolution was born.
The store soon grew, as some of the world's best mountain bikers and rising young stars came through Evolution's doors to get their bikes tuned and connected with Jenine & her crew. In the winter, the store became a hang out for Whistler and Blackcomb shredders. Over the years, we have had a pro or two work here before getting their big break in the Sea to Sky and beyond. Our extended family of the includes shop Riders such as Brandon Semenuk, Clare Buchar, Christina Chappetta, Chris Kovarik, Remi Metallier, Jordie Lunn and Stevie Smith to name a few.
We continue to help support up and coming riders and their families through our Evolution Team program. We offer product and technical support, whilst also partnering with local MTB coaching camps Zep & WORCA to help build the local community of shredders. Evolution has also sponsored the First Nations Snowboard Team which is headquartered in Whistler and helps to support local youth snow and bike events through supplying awesome prizes.
After 25 years of business we are definitely still Evolving with the industries and technologies - but one thing has stayed the same for Jenine & the Evolution Crew: a commitment to keeping the core values of a local shop and providing a quality service to who ever walks through the door.
