The descriptions and links below will give a quick overview of our five resort partners. Please be sure to reach out to them for more information and start planning your next adventure!
BURKE BIKE PARK - BURKE, VT
Voted one of the top five best bike parks by riders throughout the Northeast, the gravity fed downhill park at Burke offers a little something for everyone. A variety of terrain can be found including three downhill trails from the summit. Lower on the mountain, riders will find fun flowing singletrack and machine excavated flow/jump trails for miles. Done downhilling? Kingdom Trails and their 100+ miles of singletrack is just 10 minutes down the road. 802.626.7300
KILLINGTON BIKE PARK - KILLINGTON, VT
With redesigned and expanded beginner and intermediate trails, rugged new England downhill and industry-leading freeride terrain designed by Gravity Logic, the Killington Bike Park is the largest downhill bike park in the east. Three high-speed lifts means more laps, more miles and more fun. New facilities available this year include pump track, skills park, kids strider park and a designated uphill bike route. For those new to the sport, Killingtin offers Downhill package including lift and trail ticket and gear rental and instruction. 800.612.MTNS
MOUNT SNOW - WEST DOVER, VT
Downhilling has been happening at Mount Snow for over 30 years - they were the first to the party. In the past few years they have progressively integrated features like berms, ladders, manmade surfaces, and dirt jumps into Mount Snow's trail system; staying ahead of what has become expected of the new age bike park. Mount Snow is home to Trail 7, which is the longest introductory downhill trail in the East. Anyone that is already comfortable on a downhill mountain bike now has the opportunity to let gravity do the work without having to be an expert. 802.245.SNOW
EVOLUTION BIKE PARK - OKEMO - LUDLOW, VT
An expansion will take place this year on the summit, which will add longer, steeper and more challenging terrain. The park still offers flow trails accessible from the South Ridge Quad A. Flowy descents run through open terrain and pockets of forest while rolling across the naturally undulating terrain. These trails can be enjoyed by a wide scope of riding skill levels and bike types. These trails are about to expand a bunch. 802.228.1600
SUGARBUSH - WARREN, VT
All downhill mountain biking terrain is located at Lincoln Peak, including 37 trails across 18 miles. Try out the bike park or a mixture of challenging descents and high-speed downhill runs. Please be aware that the trails are rated on a relative scale and that even the easiest routes require good skills. 800.53-SUGAR
