Opening weekend featured Chairs 1 and 2 providing all-day access to 10-ply, Dickies, Fall Line, Going Green, Party Wave, Pirates, Plumbers, Miracle Mile, and Small Wonder. The weekend also marked the first time class 1 pedal-assist electric mountain bikes (e-bikes/e-mtb) were permitted at Summit Bike Park by the U.S. Forest Service, giving riders of all ages and abilities another option to enjoy the park and surrounding valley.

Check out the highlights from opening weekend.
