A new mountain biking trail has opened at the site of the famed Snowbird ski lift.
Skiing from the popular Snowbird resort in Colorado to the resort’s ski lift in Utah, the trail will be a new route for mountain bikers who want to explore the region.
Snowbird has become synonymous with mountain biking in the Rocky Mountains, and the new trail will connect with a mountain bike trail that connects to the popular Rocky Mountain Bikes ski lift that was opened in 2011.
The new trail, known as The Dollywood Resort, was unveiled in a ceremony in front of the Snowbird lift.
It runs through rugged terrain and is located just outside of the ski lift, near the town of Dollywood.
It connects with the Snowbirds Lake-Ski Mountain Bike Trail in Utah.
At the site, the Dollywood resort is surrounded by rolling hills that are perfect for mountain biking, with a total elevation gain of about 2,000 feet.
Located just outside the ski lifts, the park also has a ski lift access road, and a paved road connecting to the Mountain Bikers ski lift near the resort.
In the past, mountain biking trails have been restricted in the park due to the avalanche danger, but the new trails will be open to all riders.
Mountain biking is a great way to travel in the region and is not a sport that requires extensive equipment, but a lot of attention has been paid to the safety of mountain biking.
“There are a lot more people riding in the area, so it is a safe and enjoyable way to do mountain biking,” Dollywood resident Jeff Deutsch said.
He added that snowboarding is one of the more popular ways to do skiing, which he said has been going on for decades.
When asked what he thinks about the new mountain bike trails, Deutsch, a mountain biker himself, responded, “It is fun, it is beautiful, and it is also a great excuse to visit and do something that has been out of the ordinary for a long time.”
The Dollywood ski lift is located on a narrow, flat section of a mountain, which is popular for skiing and biking, as is the ski area itself.
Mountaineering is a popular activity in the Dolly area, but is still considered off-limits to many people because of the risk of avalanches.
One of the trails in the new park opens to the public, and is scheduled to open to the general public on Tuesday.
