Snowshoe Bike Park Overview
Snowshoe Bike Park is a two-time Top Five winner in the MTBparks.com Riders' Choice Best Bike Parks Awards for the Mid Atlantic/Southeast Region.
The Snowshoe Bike Park is nationally recognized as one of the best in the U.S. and offers one of the largest trail systems in the East. With nearly 40 trails and 1,500 vertical feet of descent, the park has something to offer everyone. Riders new to the sport will love our machine-groomed trails to build confidence!
The Snowshoe Bike Park has been offering lift-served gravity riding for quite some time now and has been able to build a network of nearly 40 downhill trails and 1,500 feet of vert that offer something for everyone. The gravity trails at Snowshoe cater to most styles of riding, from fast flowy runs to techy rocks and roots.
Riders new to the sport will love the park's newer machine-groomed trails, designed to help build confidence. Experienced mountain bikers will relish the expert terrain with berms, jump lines and man-made features. Best of all, the entire park is serviced by chairlifts and shuttles, so you'll never have to pedal back up the mountain.
NEW AT SNOWSHOE BIKE PARK
Snowshoe recently added a new family and beginner trail, the perfect introduction to downhill mountain biking for newbies as well as a fun warm up run for riders of all abilities. Easy Street is located in the northern tract area of the Basin, the new beginner trail features gently sloping terrain with moderate rollers and berms in addition to a few optional entry level skill features.
A new intermediate jump trail was constructed at Snowshoe last summer, and extends from West Ridge Road to the bottom of the Western Territory along the southern border of the Bike Park. Skyline is loaded with big flowy tables and monster berms, and will take your aerial skills up a few notches.

SNOWSHOE, WV – Snowshoe Mountain recently updated its 2015 operating hours to extend Saturday and Sunday hours as well as open additional trails on Thursdays and Fridays. In order to balance maintenance and labor hours, the resort will no longer operate Monday through Wednesday, a time when the resort claims low rider numbers.
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."
