(Frequently Asked Questions)
Snow Summit Scenic Sky Chair & Bike Park
Are there suitable cross-country mountain biking trails for beginner or first-time mountain bikers at Snow Summit?
Yes, from the base area of Snow Summit you can access the Bristlecone and Town Trails. Both trails are fairly flat with small up and down sections, perfect for beginners and children. All the trails accessible from the top of the Scenic Sky Chair are best suited for intermediate and advanced cross-country mountain bikers.
What are the requirements to ride the Sky Chair with bike?
You must have a helmet to access the Sky Chair with a bike. Your bike must have a breaking system of some kind, though BMX bikes or bikes without both front and rear hand breaks are not recommended. Your bike cannot be motorized or electric. All of our previous bike limitations have been removed.
Can I use my 2015/16 winter season pass this summer?
Yes, 2015/16 winter season passes (except for night only season passes) are valid during any day of operation during the entire 2015 summer season for the Scenic Sky Chair. Season pass holders will also receive 50% off mountain biking season passes!
How long does the mountain bike season usually last?
Although the date we close our park for the summer season varies from year to year, we typically try to stay open as long as the weather is permitting, which is usually sometime in October.
