    I never rode at Sir Sam's but I have at Horseshoe Bike Park. Quick, fun, great value, and usually not too busy

    I've ridden Sir Sams, but not Blue Mountain.

    There are trails at the top, and trails that climb/descend the ski hill.

    The trails at the top have some rocks, some roots, some tight turns, some bridges. Nothing tricky; maybe beginner-intermediate XC level stuff.

    The trails that traverse the hill have some rocks and roots in sections. Less tight. Less winding. More flowy, more high speed. Intermediate XC level stuff mostly. I seem to recall there may have been some more downhill-oriented trails that descended more steeply with jumps/drops, but we didn't do those. Certainly, not as technical or rocky as say MSA or VBDN.

    The first 30 seconds or so of the video link below are at Sir Sams, and you'll see some rock-armoured sections in it and the one wooden ramp jump we did:

    Mountain bikers are generally a rational bunch...until someone moves a rock on our favorite trail and we lose our minds - LMN
