Mountain Biking Information

The Panorama Bike Park 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.

News & Fresh Stuff

The past few summers have seen a flurry of improvements to the park as the crew takes things to the next level. This season we are stoked to unveil more updated and new terrain throughout the Bike Park, including our first all flow, intermediate trail on Rocking Horse. Check it out

The Enduro and DH National Championships are back but this year they are back to back over the same weekend. It's going to be massive and we're filling the weekend with sweet event as part of our first ever Gravity Festival. 

Developments from 2018 are still winning fans with the addition of a progressive intermediate jump line on Mercy Me & the jump line on Hell's Bells completely overhauled to make the jump shapes more modern. The Hell's Bells decks average approximately 30 feet in length. The features on Crazy Train also received some tender loving care and will see more work and new features this season.

For beginners our green run Let It Ride is an excellent intro to downhill biking and Trail Crew have some updates slated for here as well. Flowy, fun and challenging, the terrain gets progressively harder the further you get along the trail. As a beginner you can expect wide switchback turns at the top, some fast open sections, a couple of little spots covered in roots and small rocks and lots of big berms that become more challenging as you approach the end of the trail.

Mapping and trail information is available on Trailforks and is also available as a Smartphone app for IOS and Android devices.

  • E-Bikes

    If you are an E-Bike owner we regret to inform you that we cannot accept your bike on our current lift system. Panorama agrees that E-Bikes are awesome, just like their owners, but unfortunately our lift system is not currently designed to accommodate them.

    We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause and we appreciate your understanding.

Hopeful Alpine XC Trails

*Please note there will be no lift access above the Mile 1 Express to access the Hopeful Trails this summer. 

The Hopeful Bike Trails require an uphill ride or a hike-a-bike from the top of the Mile 1 Express Quad to access the trails from the summit. The ride from the Mile 1 to the top of the Champagne chairlift is challenging due to it's consistent assent. Please be prepared with plenty of water. The up track from the top of the Champagne chairlift is purpose built and a little easier.

Single Ride Lift Tickets
If you are just looking to ride Hopeful and not the Bike Park as well, a $12 one-ride ticket for the Mile 1 Express chairlift is available from Guest Services.

Directions  
Mapping and trail information is available on Trailforks and is also available as a Smartphone app for IOS and Android devices.
