TIMBERLINE BIKE PARK
will open Monday, August 12, 2019
for its first “preview” season
Timberline Lodge looks forward to opening the Timberline Bike Park on Monday. This is Year 1 of a multi-phase bike park build.
Family-friendly trails that are suited to bikers of all ages and abilities were purposefully built into Phase 1 of the Timberline Bike Park. Gravy Train, the primary green trail, is wide and flows 4.5 miles or about 35 minutes, and is perfect for a first time bike park experience. Blue and black trails will also be open, however, blue jump lines may not be ready for opening day.
The Timberline Bike Park will operate seven days a week through Labor Day, from 11:00am until one hour before sunset. A revised schedule will be implemented in the fall. For this first preview season, all-day lift tickets for adults age 13+ will be $36 and $32 for kids.
The Preview Season Pass is $249 for adults and $199 for kids. Timberline Bike Park Preview Season Passholders also receive two free Bike Park days at Mt. Bachelor, Grand Targhee, Schweitzer Mountain Resort, and Whitefish Mountain Resort.
The entrance to the new park is in front of Wy’East Lodge right off the main Timberline Ski Area parking lot. In order to access the Timberline Bike Park, guests will need a lift ticket, helmet, close-toed shoes, and functioning front and rear brakes. Trek bike rentals and safety gear rentals, as well as private lessons, will also be available at opening. The Wy’East Store in the Wy’East Day Lodge will carry a variety of bike gear and apparel. The Y’Bar, also located in the Wy’East Day Lodge, is catering to the bike crowd with healthy and hearty lunch items, Mt. Hood Brewing Co. craft ales on tap, and outdoor seating. Kids are welcome in the Y’Bar.
As construction of Phase 2 trails continues, the Timberline Bike Park will evolve over time. A bike park is a continual work in progress. It takes years of design, maintenance, building, re-working ride lines, hearing user feedback, soil compactions, and seeing how trails fare over winter. This is a multi-year build process. As such, Timberline asks that guests and public stay out of construction areas. This is for their own safety as well as the safety of Timberline crews.
Timberline urges guests to visit the new Bike Park with the expectation that this is a preview season, and to look forward to years to come as Bike Park operations are expanded. Most importantly, guests are encouraged to have a really good time.
