Currently Closed Trails:

New Trail Alert: We are opening the next section of the new Gravity Logic blue jump trail, which connects the bottom of Broken Bridge to the top of the segment of blue jump opened earlier in the summer. Enjoy!
It’s the final weekend of the lift served mountain biking, we’re super excited to debut the next segment of lower blue jump trail, connecting it the bottom of Broken Bridge trail. Hoping the rain holds out and thanks to our hard working trail crew and nearly all trails are open!
Fall lift service will shut down after Sunday 10/17 so the team can prepare the mountain for the fast-approaching winter season.
Lifts Friday-Sunday 10am-5pm
Lifts Close For The Season On Sunday, October 17
Targeted Opening of Winter Lift Service Friday, November 26
Scenic Lift Riders Must Board Vista Lift In Main Base Area By 4pm If They Want A Ride Back Down (Can Load Closer To 5pm If Walking Down)
Please remember to know your limits and stay within them, but looking like a nice week to view the changing leaves from the lift and your bike.
Have you checked out our new Blue Jump trail built by the one and only Gravity Logic? This machine-built flow and go is really kind of a big deal if you ask us. We hope you enjoy the flat top booters with big sweeping berms sweeping through the woods on this beautiful Green Mountain weekend. On that note, a freindly reminder that if you do elect to duck into Broken Bridge, the trail will finish with a re-route to 00 (pronounced “Double Aught”), as the new Blue Jump Trail is routing through that section of what was (and will never be again) the bottom of Broken Bridge trial previously. The “00” re-route does mean you will indeed finish Broken Bridge on a Black Diamond trail intended for Advanced Riders. That said, the majority of the technical terrain on 00 trail is above where you will merge onto it from Broken Bridge and is a relatively short section of the trail. This is a great opportunity to PRE RIDE, RE RIDE & FREE RIDE a section of black diamond trail we think is attainable for intermediates looking to progress. Check out the map above to see Broken Bridge to 00.
But we digress, back to the exciting Gravity Logic work that continues into the fall… shoot, they’ll be working the earth as long as weather will allow… And boy oh boy, are they moving quick! Things we’re excited about:
– THE NEARLY COMPLETE GREEN TRAIL – Have you seen the work being done on Spillway? Well, that’s are LONG sweeping green beginner trail that starts near Vista summit and sweeps switchback flow style all the way back to the base area. Our whole trail crew is working on this trail currently, so make sure you keep an eye out for new builds and check it out from afar.
– Continuing this new blue jump trail up toward Wilderness Mid Station (we hope to complete the connection to the bottom of Broken Bridge before winter if the weather will just cooperate with us for a minute).
– Blue hybrid trail over by Double Down and One Love AND
Are you half as excited as we are about all these upcoming green and blue trails?!?!? We. CANNOT. Wait.
First (bottom) segment of the NEW BLUE JUMP TRAIL located in the woods between/above Wilderness and Mighty Mite lifts (seen here):
INTERMEDIATE RIDERS: Vista Glades, Broken Bridge, Wright Brothers, and Blue Jump Trail are your best friends! Well, that is if you’re reiding lifts anyway – there’s a lot of good beginner to intermediate friendly features and trails down in the Progression Zone as well (by the Sports Center and lower parking lots). Lift riders, we know you’re going to love the flowy, bermy blue Vista Glades from the top and then exit onto the Work Road. From there, keep going to Broken Bridge and eventually to Wright Brothers, our new blue freeride trail. So excited about this new Wright Brothers trail with her table top jumps and general intermediate free ride moxy to complement the big berms of Vista Glades. We hope you enjoy some of this new flow, as we can’t wait to bring you more of it, thanks to our hard working trail crew and the efforts of the world class trail building team at Gravity Logic.

A few friendly reminders:

– The trails on Vista and Wilderness terrain are for intermediate and advanced riders only at this time. We look very forward to building 7+ miles of new green/blue flow trails with Gravity Logic in the years to come, but our most beginner friendly trails can be found down by the Sports Center (see map below – “Progression Zone” and neighboring trails)

– The ONLY way to start your climb to mountain bike is via the Wilderness RFID gate and Wilderness Work Road. No other uphill routes currently permitted.
– Please use caution and Pre Ride, Re Ride, Free Ride. Please ride with extra caution as there are definitely areas of “sudden slickness” throughout our trails this time of year.
Please note, a ticket or pass is REQUIRED to access the trails today. We will have someone in the ticket cube, and you can buy and print tickets and passes right there! Pro tip: Buy yours ahead of time HERE, and load it onto your existing Mountain Card OR come get your fresh card today at our ticket pickup box.
