    2019 MTBparks Pass offers a free day of riding and other benefits at Blue Mountain

    2019 MTBparks Pass offers a free day of riding and other benefits at Blue Mountain-f2a8e1db340eafc0bf214d9e4fb3c763_xl.jpg

    Blue Mountain Bike Park saw many improvements last year including the re-surfacing of many of their flow trails, new 4-bike trays for increased uplift capacity, and more overnight options for those looking to make a weekend out of it.

    i've been riding at blue for a long time, the trays on the lift are a HUGE upgrade. i remember back when they first opened and you had to ride the lift with your own bike. race weekends it took forever.

    I totally agree. Remember extensive lines when they had the ESC Enduro and DH on the same weekend. Should make for quite a few more practice runs on race weekends. The terrain at Blue Mountain is unlike any other and I hope they continue to expand their trail network.

    But there isn't any additional uphill capacity. The tray cars hold 4 bikes, they are every 4th car. Only difference is you sit with people now. Which is nice sometime, I admit.

    I guess on a race weekend when they are sending up people without bikes it helps, but for regular riding... you don't get up the hill any faster.

    There were only hooks on every other chair and these are 4 bike trays, so it at least doubles uphill capacity. It also means that there doesn't need to be multiple people at the bottom of the lift loading bikes on. May free at least one of them up for building trails.

    I've been wanting to check this place out, but I'm riding a full sus bike with only 120/100mm travel (SC Tallboy2). Is this manageable on the Green/Blue trails or would I be better off renting a dedicated downhill bike?

    It would be manageable but I am sure you would have quite a bit more fun on a 6-8" bike, mostly because of the steepness of the trails. The bike shop has a full fleet of rental bikes from Giant that are very reasonably priced.

    Thanks for the heads-up. I appreciate it.
