EDEN, Utah (ABC4) – Bike enthusiasts, mark your calendars as a brand new bike park debuts at Powder Mountain this summer.

Ski resort Powder Mountain will transform into “Dirt Mountain,” bringing miles of lift-accessed biking trails for guests. The new bike park will be unveiled on July 14 as part of a five-year expansion project.

“Each spring, summer and fall, bikers have made their way to the mountain to ride Powder’s existing free cross-country trails and after seeing an increased demand for more offerings, Powder Mountain has been working on developing lift-accessed downhill mountain biking,” resort officials say.

The Hidden Lake lift will run Thursday-Sunday and provide access to downhill trails spanning over three miles long with a 1,268-foot vertical drop. The elevation at the top of the lift is 8,879 feet and 7,634 feet at the bottom. Two flow trails will be opened this season offering a variety of terrain levels.

Officials say for the next five years, the resort has plans to build around 2-5 new trails every summer, aiming to build over 15 downhill mountain bike trails.

Along with downhill trails, there will be XC/Multi-Use trails which can be accessed for free at Dirt Mountain. The over 30 miles of public access singletrack is adjacent to ride-in, ride-out lodging and XC trails will open from sunrise to sunset, seven days a week, officials say. Bikes and all protective gear including helmets and knee pads, elbow pads and more are available for rent on site.
