    Sunday River Bike Park update for 8-20-11

    We have completed a new piece of Rock Star which is an easier, slower option to the huge wooden step-up/roller. This piece of trail opened yesterday. This weekend we have maintenance scheduled for Crater and Grease Monkey. Well also be putting some more time into Rock Star prepping it for a race this fall. Yes I said race. Downhill mountain bike racing will make a return to Sunday River this September 25th. The course will be Rock Star to Rt.229 into some wide open ski slope turns finishing near the bottom of the lift.
    This week we received some much needed rain. With any luck this will keep the dust down to a minimum. The weather for the weekend is looking good with just a few scattered late day thunder storms in the forecast. So get out early and enjoy these last weeks of summer with some of the best riding of the season.

    Agreed. Photos or it didn't happen.

    Are you guys open during the week? I'm going to be up that way on Friday.

    Compared to Highlands

    How does Sunday River compare to Highlands? SR is a much further drive, but if it's worth it, I'd love to check it out. Thanks.

    Yup, open Fridays.

    Compared to Highland, the River is more mtn, less park. There are some jumps but the two mtns are two totally different riding experiences.

    totally different places highland has alot of man made berms, smooth sections and jumps. sunday river is rocky, full of roots and un groomed. Tight single track. depends on what you're looking for. i wouldnt ride sunday river without a dh or well built freeride bike. no hardtails either. imo. you could ride highland with a all mountain rig if you wanted. one other thing to mention is the runs at sunday river are twice as long if not a little more.

    Thanks.

    Sounds like a trip to Sunday River is necessary. Thanks for the comparison.
