Ride Smart

SLOW DOWN BEFORE YOU SPEED UP

Crashes can happen on your first lap. Ride the trail multiple times to get familiar with the features and equipment you’re on so you can more confidently push your limits without pushing your threshold. Jumping skills are required for freeride trails.

Warm up the brain and body and inspect the trail at low speed.

Lap the trail a few times and get to know the flow of the features.

Start small and work your way up to faster speeds and larger features.

Helmets required for all bikers.

No smoking on the mountain.

No dogs on the mountain.

Please do not litter.
