Deer Valley summer 2023 has ended. Thank you to our guests and staff for making this summer so memorable. For information on summer 2024, please check back in the spring.
Spread over six mountains and featuring up to 3,000 vertical feet of elevation change, Deer Valley Resort offers nearly 60 miles of mountain bike trails, including four flow trails designed by Gravity Logic. Our fun and thrilling mountain bike trails are accessed via three chairlifts. Silver Lake Express chairlift at the base of the resort, Sterling Express located mid-mountain, and Homestake Express also located mid-mountain, provide access to a wide variety of excellent trails. Several of Deer Valley Resort’s mountain bike trails connect with Park City’s extensive 400-mile network of single track.

To expand and seamlessly connect the resort’s Snow Park Base area with the Silver Lake Mid-Mountain trail system, Deer Valley will embark on a number of trail projects this summer. With the continued help of Gravity Logic, a new intermediate jump/flow trail and a new advanced/expert flow trail will be constructed on Bald Eagle Mountain, as well as the addition of a hiking only trail. Ripple, the newest green level flow trail will officially open from top to bottom this summer for a long, leisurely ride accessible to all levels.

With so much new terrain to explore, we have expanded the popular Twilight Ride Series to two nights. Now offering extended evening chairlift hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays this season. Private mountain bike lessons are available for $340 as well, if reserved in advance.

What are the best mountain bike trails for beginners?
For beginners, we recommend starting at the Skills Park near Silver Lake Lodge to gain confidence and hone your skills. Once you feel comfortable, progress to the Secrets of My Success trail, which serves as a great skill-testing route. Next, ride the Holy Roller trail accessible via the Sterling Express chairlift. These trails offer a seamless progression for beginners, allowing you to build confidence and have an enjoyable experience at Deer Valley.

What types of mountain biking trails should I ride?
When it comes to our mountain biking trails, there are two distinct types - Freeride trails and technical trails.

Freeride trails, including flow trails, are often wider than technical trails, containing enhanced and
modified terrain, obstacles, and features such as jumps, berms, banks, bridges, drops, etc. created from dirt, wood or other materials. Freeride trails may also incorporate technical trail features and designs.

Technical trails are often relatively narrow and contain features and characteristics found naturally occurring on the area property, its slopes, trails, and terrain. Technical trails may contain roots, gravel, rocks, logs, water crossings, jumps, drops and other natural characteristics and obstacles found in the natural environment, and may also include some man-made obstacles and bridges. Technical trails may also incorporate freeride trail features and designs.

For detailed information on the different terrain options available at Deer Valley, please refer to the Trail Progression Chart included on the summer trail map. It will provide you with valuable insights to help you choose the right trails for your skill level and preferences.

Should I take a mountain bike lesson?
