Snowshoe Bike Park Overview

A closer look at one of the Best Bike Parks in the Southeast/Mid-Atlantic
The Snowshoe Bike Park has been offering lift-served gravity riding for quite some time now, and because of this, they have been able to build a network of over 30 downhill bike trails that offer something for everyone. The gravity trails at Snowshoe also cater to both styles of riding, from fast flowy berm runs to techy rocks and roots.
Riders new to the sport will love the park's newer machine-groomed trails, which are designed to help build confidence. Experienced mountain bikers will relish 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.
Last year's big news...
Snowshoe earned some well deserved recognition last summer, when riders voted the park #2 in the MTBparks Best Bike Park Rider Awards for the Mid-Atlantic/Southeast Region.
In 2013 Snowshoe added a new family & 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."

Snowshoe, WV – This past weekend Snowshoe Bike Park debuted its new blue jump trail to the public. The trail was designed by Gravity Logic, and built by the crew at 402 Trails.
