  • Fun Rolls On In The Bike Park Through October

    by Rob Ochtera | Oct 04, 2016

    Come see why there are so many more people riding mountain bikes at our Bike Park this summer. We've added Going Green, a four mile + beginner trail from our Mt. Top Trailhead all the way back to Basecamp and our Lifts.

    We've also added to our trail diversity by joining forces with the National Forest Service and giving some long time local favorite trails, accessible from the top of our lifts, a much needed makeover and in some cases a rebuild. In addition, our intermediate terrain has grown with the extension of Turtle Trail to our summit.

    Riders are loving this top-to-bottom flow trail with 45 bermed turns on the way down. Got some really new riders? Bring them too and set them up on our beginner lift, Chair 4, and let them enjoy Small Wonder and our Beginner Line of the Skill Builder Park. It's the perfect place to learn some skills and get a feel for what they will find when they join you on the upper mountain.

    Get the gang together soon, though. Operation is through the end of the month and hours are here.
