Manulift is proud to announce its partnership with SilverStar Mountain Resort in BC. As the Canadian telehandler specialist, we’ve provided a Merlo P50.17 to help bring their slopestyle mountain bike course to new heights, just in time for the Crankworx British Columbia 2021 event from Sept. 30 to Oct. 2!

From its beginnings as a local ski hill in 1958, SilverStar Mountain Resort has evolved into a world-class winter and summer holiday destination. Located just outside of Vernon in the Okanagan Valley, the resort becomes an idyllic ski and snowboarding hill with an abundance of natural snow during the winter. In the summer, the hill becomes a hotspot for mountain bikers and hikers alike.

Crankworx British Columbia will be welcoming some of the world’s top pro riders to compete in six disciplines. This event will provide a temporary replacement for the usual stop in Whistler. Crankworx Whistler is set to return to the World Tour’s calendar in August 2022.

The Slopestyle contest will be the second Crankworx FMBA Slopestyle World Championship (SWC) event of the season. The Crankworx B.C. tour will kick off at the Sun Peaks Resort, before heading to Kicking Horse Mountain Resort and finally wrapping up at SilverStar. The new course at SilverStar has been in the works since the summer of 2019, combining the vision, creativity and muscle of Brett Rheeder and Matt MacDuff. With construction currently underway, the power, precision and stability of their Merlo P50.17 is helping them create a stunning course. The P50.17 offers a 56-foot boom with an 11,000 lb lifting capacity, perfect for hauling heavy logs, equipment and installing jumps. With its cabin suspension system and chassis levelling stabilizers, it can handle the most difficult terrains, even on the side of a mountain!

Coverage of the event will include live racing and competition on Red Bull TV, with event highlights, behind-the-scenes action and more!
