Mount Snow Bike Park opened its slopes to mountain biking 27 years ago! We love their bike park's motto: "Old School Gnar, New School Air." In the past few years, the bike park at Mount Snow has been aggressively adding jumps, drops, berms, ladders, and man-made surfaces to their trail system. However, if you eat DH-tech-gnar for breakfast, then Mount Snow's Bike Park serves up huge portions of steep, rocky, root-infested tracks!
The resort at Mount Snow has hosted dozens of major mtb events and races over the years. Most recently, they played host to the USA Cycling National Championships. Located in southern Vermont in Green Mountain National Forest, Mount Snow Bike Park is close to many large metropolitan areas. Albany, NY is just 67miles to the southwest of Mount Snow, and Boston, MA is only 133miles to the southeast. The base elevation is 1,900ft., and the top elevation is 3,600ft. In general, the bike park is open in summer Fri.-Sun. During the high season, they are open on Wednesdays as well.
Mount Snow Bike Park was notorious for "medieval" DH trails during the NORBA races in the early-mid 2,000's. Fast & rough DH terrain with big granite slabs and the infamous "Yardsale" rock-garden section that left many broken bikes & bones in its wake! In 2011, Mount Snow started construction on a top-to-bottom "beginner" DH trail. It's now one of the longest DH runs in New England.
MT SNOW SPORTS (802-4643-4040) is located in the Grand Summit Resort Hotel. They are a full-service repair and tune bike shop. XC to full-on DH bike rentals are available with a full complement of protective gear for rent as well.
