Forms and Questions

Blue Mountain has some of the most varied terrain on the East Coast, you are sure to encounter lots of roots, rocks, steep trails, and everything else in between.  Please pay attention to your surroundings and if it looks difficult, use common sense to power-through!

There Are a Few Rules

A HELMET IS REQUIRED.   Full-face helmets are optional.

A full suspension bike is highly recommended.   Protection pads and body armor are encouraged.   Everyone must sign a release form and riders ages 17 and under must have a parent/guardian signature on the release.

Whether you're a beginner or expert, caution should be taken when out on the mountain.  You should always ride on trails that match your skill level.  If possible, it is best to use the buddy-system.  Although riding alone can be very enjoyable, keep in mind that even the most skilled riders fall down.  It's getting back up that makes all the difference.

Weather Operating Statement

Blue Mountain Bike Park typically operates regardless of weather.  However, there are times when we are forced to close for the safety of our guests, employees, and lifts due to the weather.  If the forecast is such that we will not open for the day, an announcement will be made by 7:30am that day on our website and social media. 

Lightning – If the park is open and lightning is in the area, operations will be suspended until the area is clear.  If more storms are forecast or it is near the end of the day, the park may close for the day. 

Blue Mountain Bike Park does not offer refunds or rain checks due to bad weather.  We make every effort to stick to our operating schedule, but cannot control the weather. 

A Note to Novice Riders

Trails at the Blue Mountain Bike Park do require some prior downhill mountain bike experience to enjoy.  It is recommended that guests without downhill mountain bike experience seek out their local trail systems before visiting the Bike Park.

I've never rode downhill before, is that a problem?

The trails at Blue Mountain Bike Park do require some prior mountain bike experience to enjoy. It is recommended that guests without mountain bike experience seek out their local trail systems before visiting the Bike Park.

How difficult are the trails?

Blue Mountain Bike Park trails are rated similarly to our ski trails. Green trails are the easiest, blue trails are more difficult & black trails are most difficult. Please keep in mind that this rating system compares the difficulty of our trails in relation with each other. This is not a comparison of our trails to trails at other mountains or trail systems. We do not currently offer any trails that would be comparable to a bike path.

Green trails do contain rocky and rooted sections, dirt berms and rollers, as well as steep grades and varied terrain. These trails do make their way down a mountain side and some mountain bike skill is required to ride them comfortably. A full suspension mountain bike is recommended for these trails.

Blue trails contain features of increasing difficulty including small drops, jumps, larger berms and steeper trails. An all mountain full suspension mountain bike or downhill bike is recommended for these trails. Some body armor protection is also recommended on our blue trails.

Black trails are the expert downhill trails. These trails are steep, rocky, loose, and contain larger jumps and drop offs. A 6” – 9” travel downhill bike is highly recommended on the black trails. A full face helmet and full body armor are also highly recommended for guests riding this terrain.

Do I have to sign a waiver?

Everyone must sign a release form and riders ages 17 and under must have a parent/guardian signature on the release.
