Wondering what's going on with the Bike Park for Summer 2011? Here's an update!

Lower mountain trails are scheduled to open June 24, 2011 and we will update what trails will open closer to that date.

Here are some changes visitors will find throughout the park this season:

-Enhancements added this season will represent a 10-fold increase in capital spending in Bike Park from previous seasons.
-Significant improvements to multiple existing trails including the addition of freeride-specific features and five new jump runs.
-Three new trails will feature irrigation from Mammoth’s extensive snowmaking system. Last season, sprinklers were added to a new jump run built on Lower Twilight Zone to keep the dirt moist and tacky. Due to the great response the irrigation received, the bike park trail crew decided to add irrigation to this season’s new jump trails.
-A new jump run which will feed off of Velocity and run back down to Main Lodge along the ski run “Jill’s Run” will feature up to two dozen jumps and features in a row.
-Kamikaze Park will feed off of lower Kamikaze, running down the ski run Sesame Street and will feature jumps and freeride-specific features.
-Upper Twilight Zone will be constructed connecting Velocity to Lower Twilight Zone.
-Pipeline will get an extension and remodel connecting it with Shotgun and Paper Route X-Zone. New features will include launch ramps constructed from wood and metal, a boardwalk and a wood wallride.
-Trail Home will receive a major facelift resulting in 1.5+ miles of jumps, berms and freeride-specific features leading from McCoy Station down to Main Lodge.
-The Bike Lab: A new skill development center at McCoy Station featuring beginner and intermediate level features so riders can build confidence before tackling larger park features.
-Installation of 120 Tons of new Paver Bricks allowing Mammoth to create a variety of new features that enhance the riding experience, prevent erosion and improve the flow and rideability of trails.
-Two new over/under bridges added to high-traffic trail intersections along Paper Route to improve safety while keeping the trail fun and fast.
-Trail enhancements to Uptown and Downtown trails to improve visibility and enhance flow.
-A new fleet rental and demo bikes from Rocky Mountain Bicycles. Models available will include Rocky Mountain Element and Flatline.

All bike park season passes and quad pack tickets are on sale until June 24, 2011. For more information on Mammoth Mountain Bike Park, visit http://www.MammothMountain.com.

Ch 9 area is still 100% skiable. Off the top could be doable by late July with the summer sun hitting the southern exposure. But the backside is not even close to being mostly snow free....and down by reds lake is still completely covered, no dirt whatsoever.
