Powderhorn Mountain Resort will kick off the summer 2018 season on June 9th with something new for beginner mountain bikers and families. The resort finalized a new bike trail, Mutton Buster, after the lifts closed for the Summer 2017 season. The new top-to-bottom mountain bike trail was constructed with newcomers in mind.
“With Mutton Buster fully completed, we have a full range of mountain bike offerings for every skill level,” said Sam Williams, General Manager at Powderhorn. “The more advanced trails are riding great and the new green trail will provide downhill mountain biking access to more families and beginners than ever before.”
Powderhorn currently offers three dedicated downhill mountain bike trails of varying difficulties accessed by the Flat Top Flyer, a high-speed detachable quad chairlift. Powderhorn has also converted one trail, Stagecoach, to uphill-only access for bikers and hikers. Two dedicated hiking trails round out the summer trail system. The resort offers a range of downhill-specific rental bikes and bike clinics for those new to the trail system or downhill mountain biking.
Powderhorn is introducing new events to the summer schedule like the Scott Enduro Cup and Rocky Mountain Race Series. Popular returning events include Gears & Beers, Train to Hunt, ColorSunday and the Colorado Backcountry Biker Sunday Scramble Race Series.
The resort will operate Saturdays and Sundays June 9th through early October. Activities and amenities in addition to lift-served mountain biking & hiking include scenic chair rides, full food & beverage services, a rental and retail shop and on-mountain lodging. Summer 2018 is Powderhorn’s third season offering downhill mountain biking and other summer activities. Lift tickets are $25 for a full-day, $12 for a single-ride, and kids 12 and under ride free with the purchase of an adult ticket.
