Riders pack Powderhorn for first weekend of lift-access mountain biking

By  | 

MESA, Colo. (KKCO) -- This summer, you can trade your skis for two wheels at Powderhorn Mountain Resort.

Powderhorn opened their new lift-access mountain biking trails this weekend.

Riders can currently try out three trails, one for every level: easy, intermediate and difficult. Powderhorn officials said they hope to continue building trails throughout the summer.

The opening brought more riders than the resort had planned for, and this had Ryan Robinson smiling.

“The more bikers we see, the more we are able to build out that trail infrastructure. So we really want everyone to come up and enjoy the trails," said Robinson, the marketing and sales manager for Powderhorn.

Robinson said most people are bringing their own bikes to ride, but pointed out that Powderhorn has a good selection of rental bikes available from Scott Bikes.

The lifts are open Friday, Saturday and Sunday for rest of the summer.

Next weekend will be the official grand opening weekend celebration, with live music and more biking fun.
