Sugarbush Resort Overview
Whether you prefer high-speed downhill runs, North Shore-style freeride features in the park, long technical descents on your cross-county bike, or leisurely loop rides, Sugarbush Bike Park should have something to meet your every whim.
Starting at the top of Lincoln Peak, the lift-served trail network at Sugarbush features 25 trails covering 18 miles, with long mellower descents and high-speed downhill runs. The resort offers a "Skills for the Hills" or "1st Timer to Life Timer" coaching program for riders new to Sugarbush. Downhill or freeride bikes with disc brakes and full suspension are the best tools for the mountain. And if you're looking for a new rig, check out their great fleet of Scott demo bikes.

Sugarbush bike park is recognized for having an outstanding variety of mountain bike trails. There are more than 35 trails on the mountain that wind in and out of the lush green understory of the Mad River Valley. The majority of the downhill trails are geared towards the beginner to intermediate riders, but the trails are littered with alternative features to raise the level of the trail and keep the shredders entertained. The more difficult trails feature sections of loamy woods where the rooty and rocky corners are broken up by bomb holes and steeper bits with more roots and rocks.
Sugarbush also features several XC trails woven between the DH runs for those looking for a pedal. Whatever your preference or skill level, there is something every rider at Sugarbush.
