NEW AT SNOWSHOE BIKE PARK
For 2016, Snowshoe is planning improvements to the Western Territory include creating a new entrance to that portion of the bike park. The Road Gap, one of Snowshoe’s most popular features is being redesigned and will now be known as the Monster Energy Road Gap. Additionally, a new entrance trail is being built for blue and black riders in an effort to give easier access to the top of Western.
Plans also include resurfacing Easy Street and Skyline trails which will make for smoother riding for those just learning how to ride downhill. Bike Park organizers are focusing this season on improving the overall trail system in order to expand for bike riders of all abilities. New jumps and berms will be added throughout the park, as well as, all the regular yearly maintenance.

In what appears to be a misinterpretation of the changes, a petition earlier this week on Change.org asked Snowshoe Mountain to "Keep the Bike Park Open!" The petition, started by Levi Thornton of Spotsylvania, VA, a mountain biker and Chief Technology officer at Washington DC PR firm Seven Twenty Strategies, claims the resort was "...thinking about cutting the park's operation hours by almost half."

Long runs, awesome berms, and nice jumps. This was our first time doing DH riding and we are hooked. We rode 3 days and it never got old. From the other riders that I talked to, this is one of the best parks in the East coast region. The premier blue trail "Skyline" is a super fun, fast, and flowy trail that never got old. My group and I only dabbled with a few of the black runs, and they were fast, steep, and pretty technical in some sections with jumps and berms scattered throughout. Only thing left to be desired is a proper town nearby, as the resort is in a pretty remote location. No doubt I'll be going back.
