On the southern side of the mountain Manzanita is now open completing the Paper Route – Manzanita loop, a favorite among our local XC contingency.
OFF THE TOP
One of the most scenic mountain bike trails in North America is now open to the Kamikaze intersection. We'll be on the rest of the trail over the next few weeks with hopes of getting it open in its entirety by July 21.
Access to the bottom 1/3 of Pipeline is now possible from Paper Route. From this point on the trail there are 9 jumps before the bottom of Chair 4 where you can hop on either Shotgun or Smooth Operator.
PAPER ROUTE – MANZANITA
Paper Route to Manzanita is now open providing a spectacular cross country loop. This is also a popular loop for Ebikes which if you haven't tried are a blast. There is a beautiful lookout into the Lakes Basin on the far end of this trail, if you're in the area don't miss it.

Our industry-leading beginner area, Discovery Zone, is now ready to ride. Discovery, Adventure and Explorer trails are now open with uphill access on the Discovery Chair  now spinning daily 9AM–5PM. All of Downtown is now rideable, so take some laps from Main Lodge down to The Village, and return via the Bike Park Shuttle that runs daily from 9AM–5:30PM.
DISCOVERY CHAIR  / ZONE
After plowing through upwards of 8 feet of snow, we were able to get Discovery, Adventure and Explorer trails open today. Whether you're cruising with the fam, warming up for a big day in the park or simply enjoying the short lift and fun trails, the Discovery Chair  now offers access to this beginner's paradise.
Now open in its entirety from Main Lodge to The Village.

South Side Open for Business
Gopher Trail opened on Tuesday providing access to the top of Big Ring and a portion of Paper Route, which gets you over to the southern-side of the mountain. You can also now ride a little higher up on Bullet (via Gopher Trail) from the “House Jump.” Timber Ridge is also now open offering access to Juniper.
Only a section of the trail is currently open from Gopher Trail to Timber Ridge.
More trail is open now from the "House Jump" down to Canyon Lodge. This section is filled with jumps, drops and high speed turns. Access is the trail via Gopher Trail.

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.
Cross-country lovers, rejoice. Uptown will open Friday morning, June 21, from the F shuttle stop.
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.
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.
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.
With step-downs, step-ups, hips, berms, bonks and a massive wooden berm to drop Smooth Operator is a freestyle rider's paradise.
