Connecticut’s first lift-served bike park, the Powder Ridge Mountain Park, and Resort made its debut in 2016 and serves up a variety of gravity fed downhill trails and fun features in addition to the Powder Ridge Air Bag to help get your moves dialed.

Powder Ridge brought in trail masters Dirtsculpt and added 3 new jump lines in 2018. A small, medium, and large line will be available as well as a pump track that the bike park added to its line up. They have also added even more tech trails that can be used for downhill racing.
