Exhilarating downhill action! Very little pedaling required; ascend via chairlift :-)
Fast, banked turns on many of the corners. Only the intermediate and expert trails have drops and jumps constructed on them, all of which are bypassable. Other "freeride" features include whoops and tabletops.
There are also narrow, rocky (albeit improved) s-track trails with minimal/no built-up features. Challenging, but not physically demanding like the rock gardens of Ringwood, because your bike is nearly always gravity powered.
For XC MTB riders that are high intermediates and better.
Vertical relief 1082 ft ! Even just 4 hrs of DH riding here is plenty for a day. More intermediate terrain than at Mountain Creek Bike Park.
Hours of lift operation: 10am - 4:45pm.
Full day lift pass: $40. Or, just 1pm to closing: $27.
DH bike rental, plus protective gear (including armor and full coverage helmet): $99.
If renting equipment, plan on arriving at the resort at least 45 mins earlier than when you plan to board the chairlift.
Alternatively, if staying on the beginner and intermediate trails, you can use your own dual suspension XC bike (135mm minimum fork travel recommended) and purchase only a lift ticket. In that case, remember to bring a spare tube. A full coverage helmet is highly recommended.
We will not ride here on marginal surface conditions. If it's slick, this ride will be cancelled on the night before the scheduled start. So check this web page for updates before leaving home.
Car pooling arrangements can be made via posting to this page, or by contacting individual members via Meetup's messaging system.
When you're ready to leave home, please post your ETA at this web page. And there is also cellular service at the parking lot for communicating via the message board below.
