Mountain Bike Season

Every year from approximately mid May through the fall, Powder Ridge has some of the best mountain biking around! Check here for the opening day info for 2023.  Then, mark your calendars, tune up your mountain bike and head out to Powder Ridge for Opening Day. There are races throughout the summer for anyone interested.  There will even be an exciting night race -- bike and helmet lights only. No trail lights!

Come out to participate, spectate or even join in the fun as a bike patroller to keep those skills sharp year round.  You do not have to be on a bike to be a bike patroller.  Interested?
