Boasting the largest vertical drop in the east, the Whiteface Mountain Bike Park offers 27 diverse trails that range from hardcore expert downhill singletrack, to wide open cruisers. Bike park manager Downhill Mike tells MTBparks.com that nearly all trails will be open and ready to shred on opening day with the possible exception of trail 27 and the new flow trail.
From the summit of Little Whiteface, which you reach via a stunningly beautiful ride in the Cloudsplitter Gondola, trails are expert-only. Big bikes, full-face helmets and full pads are the norm here. So are tight turns, big rocks and steep drops. Expect each run to take about 40 minutes.
For intermediate and beginner riders, the shuttle bus runs twice an hour and will take you and your bike from the base up to a drop-off point where you can choose from a selection of trails that match your ability.
