Powder Mountain has entered Utah’s chairlift-serviced mountain biking scene in a big way. Last Friday, Powder Mountain opened for lift-serviced mountain biking for the first time ever. This summer will have three flow trails open to guests: Falkor, Big Ern, and Inspector Lee. These trails are of beginner, intermediate, and advanced difficulty. They are aiming to add two to three new trails each summer, with their full buildout containing twelve or more trails, which will have expert and pro-line runs. Season passes are $400, and day tickets are $40.
Ski Utah traveled to Powder Mountain Bike Park to see the new bike park and called it the Optimus Prime of Utah mountain biking park, although I would assume that Deer Valley would like to have a word with them. A huge perk of the setup is that the parking lot is at the top of Hidden Lake, which puts bikers next to the lodge, which features rentals and food. It’s then a short trip over to the new trails, which have a 1268′ vertical drop to the base terminal of the Hidden Lake Express. When it’s fully built out though, this could very well be the best mountain biking park in all of Utah, and one of the best in the country.
Some photos, hours, and trail maps of the new bike park are below…
