BIKE PARK SAFETY

With hazards existing on the trails, be cautious and use common sense.

  • Wear protective gear and clothing – helmets are required.
  • Ride with a partner and pick trails that suit your ability level.
  • Follow trail etiquette rules: Uphill traffic has the right of way on two-way trails and on downhill trails, the rider in front has the right of way.
  • Be aware of the high altitude environment – the sun is more intense and your body fatigues faster. Stay hydrated and keep an eye on changes in weather, including thunderstorms.
  • Know and follow the Mountain Biker's Responsibility Code – it is your responsibility.



MOUNTAIN BIKER'S RESPONSIBILITY CODE

Mountain biking involves the risk of serious injury or crash. Your knowledge, decisions and actions contribute to your safety and that of others. ALWAYS:

  1. STAY IN CONTROL. You are responsible for avoiding objects and people.
  2. KNOW YOUR LIMITS. Ride within your ability. Start small and work your way up.
  3. PROTECT YOURSELF. Use an appropriate bike, helmet and protective equipment.
  4. INSPECT AND MAINTAIN YOUR EQUIPMENT. Know your components and their operation prior to riding.
  5. BE LIFT SMART. Know how to load, ride and unload safely. Ask if you need help.
  6. INSPECT THE TRAILS AND FEATURES. Conditions change constantly; plan and adjust your riding accordingly.
  7. OBEY SIGNS AND WARNINGS. Stay on marked trails only. Keep off closed trails and features. Ride in the direction indicated.
  8. BE VISIBLE. Do not stop where you obstruct a trail, feature, landing or are not visible.
  9. LOOK OUT FOR OTHERS. Look both ways and yield when entering or crossing a road or trail. When overtaking, use caution and yield to those ahead.
  10. COOPERATE. If involved in or witness to an incident, identify yourself to staff.

Know and Follow the Code. It is Your Responsibility.



Safety Checklist

The trails at Mammoth Bike Park are rough and demanding on both the bike and the body. Before riding always inspect your equipment or have it checked by a qualified bike mechanic.

  1. Helmets are required for all mountain bike trails. Before heading out make sure yours fits correctly and is not damaged.
  2. Assess safety pads for fit and any damage. Make sure you are wearing the appropriate pads for you skill level and that coincide with the difficulty of the trails you're looking to ride.
  3. Inspect bike frame for cracks, damaged or dented areas.
  4. Ensure you have sufficient brake pads to stop your bike while descending.
  5. Front and rear axles (skewers) should be tight.
  6. Headset and stem must be secure with no looseness or play.
  7. Check that your tires are in good condition, with no tears or cuts on the rolling surface or sidewall.
  8. Handle bar and handle grips must be tight and unable to spin. Seat and seat post need to be fastened securely.


If you are not completely familiar with your bike and its various components, these checklist items, or if you have any doubt as to your bike's condition, we highly recommend you check with a qualified bike mechanic for further advice. Visit The Gear Up in the Village for full-service repairs and tuneups.

What protection equipment do I need to ride the park?

We recommend a full face helmet, knee and elbow pads, sturdy shoes, gloves, eye protection & sunscreen. All protective items are available to rent.



What ability levels do you have trails for?

Our trail network offers something for beginners through professionals. Starting with the Discovery Zone and ending with Velociraptor, there truly is something for everyone.



Can my kids ride the park?

We have industry leading beginner terrain in our Discovery Zone and offer world-class instructors as part of our lesson program.



What type of bike do I need?

Most of our trail network is well-suited for a current enduro (5"+ of travel) full suspension mountain bike. However, some of our Expert and Pro-Line trails require a full DH (8" of travel) mountain bike.



Do I ride down the ski runs?

No. We created a trail network designed specifically for mountain biking. Many of our trails do intersect or follow ski runs though. Ever wonder what Stump Alley or Broadway look like without any snow? Now's your chance.



Are eMTBs allowed?

Yes, class 1 pedal assist eMTBs are allowed on all of our mountain bike trails. Class 1 eMTBs can't have a throttle or reach assisted speeds higher than 20 MPH. Riders must follow the same rules as those on normal mountain bikes.



Can I get a tuneup or bike repair?

Yes, walk-ups are welcome for bike repairs and tuneups at The Gear Up, located on the second floor of the Mountain Center.



What's the longest trail in the bike park?

Off the Top starts on top of the mountain and when linked to Beach Cruiser and Downtown finishes at the Village, almost 15 miles and 3,000 vertical feet later.
