Even though your social media feeds are starting to fill with powder pics from resorts already pushing ski passes, bike park season isn't close to over yet. Heck, summer isn't even officially over until September 21.
DURANGO, CO – Mountain Capital Partners (MCP) has named Hogan Koesis, formerly of Angel Fire Bike Park, as its new mountain bike director for its collection of resorts, including Purgatory Resort, Pajarito Mountain, Arizona Snowbowl, Sipapu Ski & Summer Resort and Hesperus Ski Area.
JACKSON, WY – Now in its 4th year, the Annual 'Best Bike Parks Riders' Choice Awards' continues to be a hallmark of the beginning of our riding season. Once the polls close, we revel in the results of the survey, getting stoked for the season to come.
MTBparks.com announces the return of the MTBparks Pass for 2017 offering members free lift tickets, discounts and deals at many of North America's Best Bike Parks. With more than 25 resorts and other partners confirmed so far—and more continually being added—the MTBparks Pass is officially the best value available in resort riding.
It's that time of year. Your social media feeds are likely full of autumn colors from riding camarades and at the same time, powder pics from resorts already pushing ski passes. But if you're like us, you're looking to get the most bike park laps possible before the lifts stop loading bikes. And with more bike parks than ever before operating long into October (and November), it's all time fall time for some of the best laps of the season.
LOS ALAMOS, NM – The 3rd annual Los Alamos Endurofest descends upon New Mexico August 6 and 7 for two days of what event organizers are calling some of the most challenging riding the state has to offer, finishing the second day at Pajarito Bike Park. Racers will encounter 4,300 feet of climbing and 9,500 feet of descending for a chance at a $1,000 pro purse.
JACKSON, WY – Now in its third year, the MTBparks.com Riders’ Choice Awards survey carries with it an undeniable momentum, and for us, has become an official start to the summer riding season. This year, with increased participation and some surprising rankings, we found ourselves watching the top spots change constantly in the 11th hour as the final flood of votes poured in; it’s become our Super Bowl. And then on Super Tuesday, as we compiled the results while much of the country kicked off a heated election season, we couldn’t help but draw parallels to our nation’s politics.
With the summer months dropping off the calendar one by one and the days growing shorter, many of us begin to go into bike park panic mode. In many parts of the country, even our local trails aren't accessible all year long, let alone the lift-served gravity goodness that has become a beacon of the summer months for those seeking a downhill fix.
