With 25 miles of purpose built downhill trails extending almost 3000 vertical feet from the top of the Elk Camp Chairlift down to Snowmass Base Village, the Snowmass Bike park offers a full complement of trail offerings to every level and style of mountain bike rider. From the smooth and gentle banks of the Verde trail to the technical singletrack of Animal Crackers, Snowmass Bike Park delivers all your favorite aspects of a winter ski experience, except for the snow. Join us for a free flowing adventure through our high elevation evergreen forests and moderately pitched Aspen tree groves and see for yourself.
The Roaring Fork Valley, home to Aspen and Snowmass, is now designated an IMBA Gold-Level Ride Center, one of only 7 in the world and the only Gold-Level Ride Center in Colorado!
Mountain bike rentals are available at Four Mountain Sports in the Snowmass Village Mall and in the Snowmass Base Village near the Elk Camp Gondola. However, mountain bikes are also available for rent at any of the other Four Mountain Sports locations in Aspen and at Aspen Highlands. Four Mountain Sports rents out downhill and cross country mountain bikes for adults and children.
Mountain bikers can also register for downhill and freeride mountain biking clinics in Snowmass to learn the art of maneuvering on a mountain bike over rocks and along tight switchbacks. Mountain bikers ages 16 and older are welcome to sign up for these daily group mountain bike clinics held throughout the summer season. Mountain bikers must register for group lessons.
For the younger set, Camp Aspen Snowmass offers kids' mountain biking lessons for kids ages 8 – 15. Kids will learn the essential skills of downhill riding from a trained and professional mountain biking guide, and explore Snowmass Mountain biking trails suitable for their skill level.
