The Bike Park has closed for the 2022 season. Thank you for enjoying another great year with us & we look forward to seeing you next summer!!

There is no greater thrill than Downhill Mountain Biking at Greek Peak! With 18+ different trails to choose from, Greek Peak has the perfect track for every rider at any skill level. The Visions Quad chairlift will bring you and your bike to the top of the mountain in no time.

Greek Peak downhill trails consist of several lines that help you customize your day. Riders can take a direct route over a large obstacle or jump. Other less experienced riders may choose to opt for a line that completely avoids features. You’ll always find something new and exciting on every descent.

Beginners will enjoy the amazing scenery and comfort of long straightaways. Our green trails are always a favorite for beginner riders, and the blue trails are great for intermediate riders who enjoy the challenge of an exciting ride. Expert bikers will enjoy the impressive sharp curves and large features of our black diamond trails.

All riders are required to wear a helmet in order to participate. Full Face Helmets are highly recommended.

Not quite ready to go all in? Schedule a lesson with a member of our Bike Patrol! Lessons are conducted daily & cover beginner basics such as body position, speed control, braking technique, etc. to help boost your confidence before tackling the trails. Lessons are approximately 1 hour long. Reservations are HIGHLY recommended to monitor maximum capacities. Please arrive early for check in.

Forget your helmet? Bike out of commission? No worries, we’ve got you covered! Equipment is available for rental at the base of the mountain including Full Suspension Downhill Mountain Bikes, Full Face Helmets, as well as knee & elbow padding. Rentals are provided by our friends at Mountain Top Bicycles and are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Please arrive early to secure your ride for the day!  MTB Base Camp also offers mechanic service (rates vary) to get you back on the mountain & offers a variety of retail items for sale!

  • (5) Green beginner trails

2023 Season Opening Day TBD

2022 operated June 4 – October 9

Check out what we’ve been up to:

  • New trails: Flow N’ Steady & Asclepius
  • Re-routed existing trails: Pipecutter (crosses Trojan and enters Labyrinth glades)
  • Remember to pre-ride & re-ride before you free-ride all trails!
  • MTB Lift tickets now use GoPass RFID Media. They can be easily purchased online and collected at outdoor pickup boxes allowing you to head directly to the lift. GoPasses can be easily reloaded online throughout the season!
  • Base Camp has moved! We now use the Guest Services window in the Katalima (main base area) building for Lift Tickets, Season Passes & SkyTour tickets. Mountain Top Bicycles will continue to offer rentals & service in the new MTB Base Camp (known as the ski shop during the winter season).

Friendly reminders:

  • Buy your ski area season pass in the spring preceding the mountain bike season, not only to take advantage of the lowest early rates but also to enjoy the Bike Park access benefit during the summer. All Ski Season Pass products expire at the conclusion of the Ski Season. Summer 2023 Bike Park access requires a 2023/2024 Ski area Season Pass, a 2023 Bike Park Season pass or a daily lift ticket.
  • Bike Park & Ski area season passes can be picked up at the Guest Services window 7 days/week beginning in late May 9:30am-4:30pm. Avoid the lines on opening day and head straight to the lift with your GoPass. Riders may need to complete waivers upon pick-up (riders under 18 require guardian signature).
  • Sharing a GoPass is considered theft of services. Passes can be revoked without refund for anyone caught in this circumstance. Ticket sales support the operation and allow us to grow our trail system and facilitate improvements. Don’t be “that guy.”
