ABOUT THE DH BIKE PARK

Mountain Biking at Panorama celebrates old school riding while embracing the new directions and trends of the ever the evolving sports of downhill and XC mountain biking. The park’s roots are obvious in the braided labyrinth of burly tech DH trails.

The Panorama Bike Park is accessed by the Mile 1 Express chairlift and combines the best of old school riding with burly tech DH trails, and modern with freeride trails and features throughout the park. 

Rider's must have a day pass or season pass to access the Bike Park. Purchase in advance, online to save up to 20% off your day ticket.

DH BIKING FAQ
  • What type of bike is best?

    KNOW BEFORE YOU GO:

    • CROSS-COUNTRY BIKES ARE NOT RECOMMENDED IN THE BIKE PARK.
    • Bikes with front and rear suspension (full suspension) are recommended.
    • Bikes should be equipped with disc brakes (front and rear).
    • All bikes must have hand brakes. Foot or coaster style brakes are NOT Permitted.

    DOWNHILL

    A downhill specific bike is the best way to get the most of your day in the Bike Park. All levels of rider should consider a downhill bike for park riding. Full suspension bikes are purpose built for riding downhill and handle all the bumps, berms, and jumps along the way. Mountain Outfitters have a fleet of Scott Gamblers that are well suited for all the trails in the bike park. 

    ALL-MOUNTAIN

    All-mountain bikes are becoming more capable and can be a good choice for riding in the Bike Park. These bikes are full suspension (front and rear) and differ from a downhill bike in that they are designed to pedal uphill, making them more versatile. We recommend all-mountain bikes as a minimum when riding in the park.  

    CROSS-COUNTRY

    Cross-country bikes are the lightest and least suspended type of mountain bike. They are designed for pedaling cross-country type trails and are not ideal for a day of descending in the bike park. Scott Aspect bikes are perfect for riding the valley trail, monuments trails, and Lake Liliane and are available at Mountain Outfitters.

  • Can I ride an E-Bike?

    E-Bike access to the bike trails is permitted. You must purchase a regular DH trail ticket or Season Pass to gain access to the DH network. Head to the Mile 1 Express to scan your RFID ticket at the hiking / uphill biking entrance. From there follow the Valley Trail (towards Greywolf Golf Course) and up the designated access roads above the Cat Shop. See Trailforks for the Mountain Access (from Village) and Top of Mile One Access Trails. This is a service road - expect vehicle traffic. No more lift lines, just scan your ticket and pedal up.

    * Bikes weighing 50lbs or greater are not permitted on the Mile One chairlift. E-bikes can exceed this weight. If you have an e-bike, it must be weighed and approved at Mountain Outfitters before it will be granted access to the Mile One.
