Park opens up on Friday 4/18.

I heard season passes are $279, anyone know if the daily rate has increased this season? Assuming the park closes in October we'll have a solid 6 months of riding so it may be worth it to get a pass. Any locals know if all the trails will be open the first weekend?

Bike Park - Kick Off Party 4/19

ATTN mountain bikers: your prayers have been answered. We will be opening the mountain bike park on 4/18 the Friday before Easter weekend and will continue to keep it open on Friday, Saturday and Sundays. This will be the earliest opening for mountain bike parks in North America! Join us on Saturday April 19th for our first annul Kick-Off Party. We will have the Red Bull MXT here with DJ Slip Matt playing in the plaza. Check out bike vendors and win prizes throughout the day. Come up and celebrate with us.

No new trails there from last year. There is an article that talked about the red tape with the forest service. It caused them to step back to get it cleared up. They are hopeful to add beginner's trial this year and that is about it for the ski area.

Snow Summit Bike Park, Moving Forward, whats new for 2014

Don't let that get you down as there are a number of great trails that can be accessed outside the ski area.

Last year on opening day they only had a couple open trails. The upper singletrack is usually still open though.
That is because last year was the first year they had opened up again in over 10 years.....

Too bad to hear they wont have a few more trails to offer this year. That wont stop me from going up at least two or three times this summer.

I plan on riding the lift on Friday the 18th and need to rent a DH bike for my son. Where would you guys recommend? At Snow Summitt or one of the local shops? Thanks

I think SS rentals should fit the bill, they use Trek's, the other 2 shops that rent bikes, Bear Valley Bikes have Specialized and KHS, Chains Required also has Trek ands Giant.

For those not relying on the lifts,or use the lifts and are interested in XC, light trail, there are plenty of trails to be found on both sides of the lake.

I've ridden Gray's Peak and hiked Cougar Crest, are there any other trails you recommend checking out on the North side?

If you've ridden or hiked to Grays Peak, then you were on the Grout Bay trail to get to the trailhead. Grout Bay Trail starts/ finishes at the Hanna Flats campground space #51, and ends/ starts at the Grout Bay day use area. It is mostly fire roads with some hidden, secret single track, the Perfect Cycling Trail is also another option, although you may not want to ride it, especially on weekends.
