Mount Snow Bike Park is a two-time winner in the MTBparks.com Riders' Choice Best Bike Parks Awards for the Northeast Region.

With the East's only lift-served introductory downhill trail, plus freeride trails like Trail 9, steep, narrow singletrack and miles of cross-country trails Mount Snow Bike Park literally has something for everyone, not just the experts. The diverse terrain and easy access are a big part of why Mount Snow is a two-time Top Five ranked resort in the Northeast on the MTBParks Riders' Choice Awards readers poll.
In 2012, construction was completed on a new beginner downhill trail that gives riders wanting to learn how to mountain bike downhill the ability to break into gravity riding with ease.


Over the past few years the trail builders at Mount Snow have been progressively integrating new-school features like berms, ladders, manmade surfaces and dirt jumps into Mount Snow’s trail system, staying on course with the latest bike park trends.
The area surrounding Mount Snow is home to over 35 miles of mountain bike terrain consisting of singletrack, old town roads and ski trails that take riders through dense forest and wide open back roads.
