Snowbird Opens New Mountain Biking Trail

Press Release

July 15, 2014

Snowbird – Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort is celebrating the grand opening of its new mountain biking trail – Big Mtn. Trail. The trail opened to the public yesterday at 11:30 a.m. At seven-and-a-half miles and an average grade of eight percent, it is one of the longest continuous trails in Utah.

The Snowbird Big Mtn. Trail, which was designed and constructed by Utah-based Alpine Trails, starts at 11,000 feet, at the top of the Snowbird Tram, and traverses much of the Gad Valley area, going through wooded glades, meadows and challenging rocky terrain.

“The Big Mtn. Trail is one of the most scenic and varied trails we have built,” said Ben Blitch, president of Alpine Trails. “The trail is also extremely long and varied. It will be fun for experts and intermediates alike with different aspects, views and terrain.”

Snowbird and Alpine Trails worked in partnership with the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest to create a trail that was both exciting and fun, while respecting viewsheds, watershed concerns and natural areas. The trail was built and will be maintained using mountain bike industry best management practices.

The Big Mtn. Trail is open to bi-directional riding until 11 a.m., at which time the tram opens and the trail becomes one-way downhill only. The tram will be open daily from 11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. for mountain biking.
