When does the bike season end up in Whistler? I am going to get some vacation in September and would love to take a trip up there to bike but don't want to miss the season.

Often, September is the best month to bike in Whistler. Not as hot as July or August, but still often a nice temperature. The few degrees cooler can make a nice difference when doing an epic ride or wearing a bunch of armour in the park. If you want bike park, it's open 7 days/week in September and is open until early October. If you're more interested in the other trails in town, they should be good as well. Plus, the trails are less busy in the fall than in the summer.

In general, I'd say September is typically good, and October can be ok but runs the potential to have a bit more rain.

also depends on the type of riding you want to do. Whether it is the bike park or trail riding outside of the bikepark. September can be a great month.... the cheakamus challenge is a great race...
But not sure when the bike park begins to close during the week...

I plan on hitting up as much of the area as possible in a week if I can afford it. Just gotta find a place to stay that is not an arm and leg. I went skiing up there last January and had a blast but spent a ton of money on lodging. Any suggestions for a cheap place to stay? Thanks guys!

Well like anything here in Whistler prices can really vary. Now if your looking for budget then consider the hostel. There is one on the west side road and another in creekside. Both reasonably priced.
And there will be tons of epic rides for you to enjoy......

Accommodation should be much cheaper in September than during the ski season, especially mid-week. Another option to consider is Squamish. You could probably find a cheaper place down there, Squamish also has some great riding, and it would be approximately 30-40 minute drive to Whistler. A third option to look into would be Riverside camp ground.

As for the bike park, I think it might be 7 days/week until late September and possibly even until early October.
