Blue Mountain Bike Park COVID-19 Safety Precautions

On the Chairlift:

  • We will be loading a maximum of four bikes per lift tray on the outside carriers. We will only load 4 bikes if the rider is comfortable riding with another person on the chair. 
  • Guests may not sit in the chair directly behind the bike carrier to give the unloading attendant sufficient time to unload bikes and distance themselves from the unloading area
  • Guests who arrived in the same vehicle will be permitted to ride the chair together, all other guests will be asked to sit separately. 
  • Bikes will be unloaded and placed in a rack for guests to pick up. Sanitation wipes and hand sanitizer will be available at the top of the chairlift.

On the Trails:

  • Riders are encouraged to only ride those they arrived with
  • Riders are encouraged to continue using their masks while riding
  • Rider spacing of at least 20 meters is encouraged to avoid the “slipstream” of exhalation
  • If stopping along a trail, stopped riders must move at least 6’ off the trail tread while stopped
  • Ride within your limits. We understand everyone is ready to get out and shred. Progression and testing your limits can wait. Ride smart, ride safe!
  • All elements of the Mountain Bikers Code of Conduct should continue to be followed
  • AWARDS – Pro Racers MUST be present at the Race Award Ceremony to Receive Awards and/or Cash Payouts! Amateurs will be called up to collect their prizing 15 minutes after their class results are posted, to allow for protests.

 If you have not paid for your 2020 Maxxis ESC number plate or registration, please note it is EXACT CASH only, due to Covid 19 we will not be recirculating cash or making change.

 Blue Mountain Bike Park is one of the roughest parks on both bikes and bodies. The embedded rock wreaks havoc on tires and rims when the speeds start to ramp up. The terrain actually seems to provide more traction in the wet, as the rocks provide grip and the loose marbles that roll around on the hard pack begin to bed in.

Racers will have to find the straightest line to be the fastest against the clock and this usually means some rim pings. Descents such as Night Train are long and challenging, with short bursts of pedaling required midway through the run. This is made all the more difficult as it takes place in the middle of a rock garden, where pedal strikes can easily catch a rider off guard. Those comfortable with high speeds will do very well at this race.
