GET DIRTY :: 2016 BIKE PARK PREVIEW
Posted by The Beast on April 27, 2016
More trails, more lifts and more flow at the Killington Bike Park.
3 lifts, 27 miles, 35 trails, 1,972 vertical drop – it’s the summer of send.
Killington Bike Park trails in the Snowshed area open for the season on Saturday, May 28, 2016, served by the Snowshed Express on weekends and holidays until daily lift operations of the Snowshed Express Quad and K-1 Express Gondola kick off on June 18. Additional lift service for mountain biking via the Ramshead Express Quad chairlift will begin in late July as the first new downhill mountain bike trails in that area open.
Catch the Beast of A Bike Swap during opening weekend and get the gear you need at the prices you want then test it on the hill right away.
Phase three of the five-year Killington Bike Park build out designed by Gravity Logic calls for a $375,000 investment for six new trails served by the Ramshead Express Quad opening throughout the summer including a 1.31 mile downhill race trail, 2.15 mile expert jump trail, 2.29 miles of single track from the top of Ramshead to K-1 and Ramshead base areas, pump track, skills park, kids strider bike park and designated uphill mountain bike route.
Killington’s new fleet of rental bikes features over 100 adult cross country and downhill mountain bikes from SCOTT, plus demo bikes from Norco and Devinci. On the kids side, we have added 24 full-suspension youth sized mountain bikes from Norco and new Strider Bikes for the youngest riders.
