Whiteface Mountain Bike Park Overview
Check out the Whiteface Bike Park this summer and enjoy one day FREE with your MTBparks Pass!
The Whiteface Mountain Bike Park offers 27 diverse trails that range from hardcore expert downhill gnar, to cruisers, to winding cross-country paths. Literally something for every ability and riding style. Whiteface also has the greatest vertical drop in the East.
A closer look at the Whiteface Bike Park
From the summit of Little Whiteface, which you reach via a stunningly beautiful ride in the Cloudsplitter Gondola, trails are expert-only. Big bikes, helmets and full pads are the norm here. So are tight turns, big rocks and steep drops. Expect each run to take about 40 minutes.
For intermediate and beginner riders, the shuttle bus, which runs twice an hour, will take you and your bike from the base up to a drop-off point where you can choose from a selection of trails that match your ability.
Is there a trail system beyond the bike park?
The Whiteface Bike Park offers 27 downhill mountain biking trails all with a unique personality of their own. These trails also link up with the adjacent Flume Trail network, which makes Whiteface perfect for the cross country riders in your group as well.
Bonus trail score. The local xc trails can also lead you to a local cliff diving spot. Yep, cliff diving at the end of your day of downhilling with a choice of a 30 footer or a 60 footer!
What will beginners find at Whiteface?
Beginners looking to learn the basics can ride the lower mountain as well as some of the other trails on the mountain. Because Whiteface includes lots of techy, expert trails, it is good to check with a member of their trail crew for specific trails to check out if you're looking for something a bit milder.
What were the big updates from 2013?
Last year the Whiteface crew focused a lot of work on flow enhancement. All of the trails were looked at carefully, and berms, drainage and other enhancements were added or modified.
What's new for 2014?
Historically, Whiteface has had to use some of the resorts ski trails and service roads to connect the downhill single-track. The park's goal for the 2014 season is to get bikers off as much ski trail and service road as possible. LOTS of NEW single-track is the plan for 2014.
What's the best time of the year to visit Whiteface Bike Park?
Everyday! Whiteface is open 7 days a week during the summer season. So, if you are planning an east coast bike trip, hit up the other bike parks on the weekends and get some big mountain gnar on the weekedays.
