IMPORTANT MOUNTAIN BIKING SAFETY, RULES, INFORMATION, & TIPS

Know Before You Go Before you load the lift and hit the trails, familiarize yourself with our bike park rules, information, and safety tips. When you're prepared, you'll have more fun and a safer experience on the mountain.

Closed For The Season

Thanks for riding with us during our inaugural season! The Summit Bike Park is now closed for the year and will reopen summer 2023. All trails are now closed so our trail crew can complete maintenance and construction prior to snowfall. This closure applies to all, even passholders/locals. Next year's schedule has not been determined yet. Information about passes, operating schedule, trails and more will be released late spring 2022.

RIDERS MUST SELF-LOAD THEIR BIKES

Loading Your Bike On The Chairlift

  • STEP ONE
    Quickly enter the loading area and approach the bike carrier as it enters the area. Standing next to your bike and the carrier, use the handle bars to lift the front tire off the ground.
  • STEP TWO
    Lift and push the front tire into the front of the carrier.
  • STEP THREE
    Lift the rear tire into the tray and ensure your front tire is resting in the front of the tray (red area on the practice carrier).
  • STEP FOUR
    After loading your bike in the carrier look behind you to prepare to load the chairlift. Once on the lift, lower the restraining bar. Use of the restraining bar is required.

Trail Progression

  • Start On Green Party
    Green Party is our easiest trail. Ride this trail before attempting any other trails.
  • Step Up To Bermy Loamax
    Bermy Loamax is the next step up. It's a more difficult (intermediate) level freeride trail with plenty of flow, larger berms, rollers and jumps. NOTE: Riders entering this trail should be prepared to ride Mid-Mtn Connector & Wapiti as only the upper portion of Bermy Loamax is currently complete.
  • Mid-Mtn Connector & Wapiti
    Currently Bermy Loamax leads riders into these two trails, which are the next more difficult on the mountain. Both are technical trails with more roots, rocks, drops and natural obstacles.
  • Lost & Found
    Lost & Found features a fun mix of medium sized berms and technical natural terrain. It's rated as a black diamond technical trail and requires advanced skills to navigate steeper slopes, more frequent and larger obstacles, plus drops and jumps.
  • Slab 'n' Tickle
    Slab 'n' Tickle is for EXPERT RIDERS ONLY. This trail is extremely difficult and includes long steep rock slabs, very technical descents, and drops with no easy ride-arounds.
  • Black Forest
    Black Forest is for EXPERT RIDERS ONLY. Named after the small forest section in the middle, this trail is extremely difficult and includes very technical descents with drops, tight trees, and large jumps.
