NorCal MTB Parks Ready To Open

The NorCal Ski Resorts are dusting off their chair lifts and readying to open for their MTB parks for riding.

Mammoth Mountain

The bike park is scheduled to open June 23, 2007. There are a lot of park features for XC, DH and Freeriders [TRAIL MAP]. Prices range from $10 - $37 per day (depending on lift access and shuttle), while a season pass is $300 (adult after June 22nd). Of course, they have a Stay & Bike deal for you.

Northstar at Tahoe

The mountain bike park is back at Northstar after a one year hiatus. Two entirely new trails, five new trail segments and a new jump park will greet riders this year [TRAIL MAP]. Lift tickets are $39 for adults and the bike park is open 9:30 AM - 4 PM (5 PM on Saturdays). Northstar is currently set to open their park on June 29th. Races begin a few weeks later. Northstar also has a Stay & Bike promotion. The photo at the right is from Northstar website.


Although more XC oriented than Northstar or Mammoth, Kirkwood also hosted mountain bikes during the summer. Kirkwood also plans to open June 29th. Rates start at $30 (adult) for the full day and $15 for half. They will also be holding bike clinics periodically during the summer.
