More Trails, More Fun

Daytime highs have been in the mid-70s helping to melt the snowpack at a rapid rate, allowing us to open more trails just in time for the weekend. With these warmer temps, it shouldn't be long before we are able to expand our trail offerings to the southern-side of the mountain.

LOWER BIG RING
Lower Big Ring opened today, June 20, providing another green (easiest) trail for those looking to find their flow on some of our less intimidating trails. Access will be via the connector trail off of Downtown, just below the Downtown reststop. 

UPTOWN

Cross-country lovers, rejoice. Uptown will open Friday morning, June 21, from the F shuttle stop.

LOWER BULLET
If you're looking to open up the travel on your bike, lower Bullet will be open by Saturday, June 22. To access the trail, ride the fire road from the top of Smooth Operator over to Bullet, then get ready to get rowdy.

Opening This Weekend

Spring 2019 was unusually cold and wet, throwing a big wrench in our efforts to open the bike park in May. With huge thanks to our trail crew and some much needed sunshine, we plan to open this Saturday, June 15, with access to 3 trails from shuttle stop F – Shotgun, Smooth Operator and Downtown. The Bike Park Shuttle will be running from The Village.

DOWNTOWN
It all begins here. Always the first trail to open in the bike park, Downtown is an absolute blast winding from shuttle stop F all the way down to The Village. Yes it's perfect for beginners, but it's also a blast for more advanced riders to warm up, cool down or just cruise on.

SHOTGUN
Fast, flowy and usually our first advanced-level trail to open for the season. On top of being a super fast racetrack, Shotgun also has fun side hits, features, bumps and jumps to keep freestyle enthusiasts happy.

SMOOTH OPERATOR
With step-downs, step-ups, hips, berms, bonks and a massive wooden berm to drop Smooth Operator is a freestyle rider's paradise.
