These video clips and images are what Steamboat Springs lost because they were built without authorization in an area not designated for these trails. Due to their popularity, an attorney was hired and forced the City of Steamboat Springs to flatten this work of art last fall. The city acted quickly and approved a new location to allow a permanent place for replacement for what bikers lost, but it took 8+ years to build what Steamboat had and loved with volunteer effort.
Steamboat Springs’ Bear River Bike Park is one of four finalists for a Bell Built Grant
! Voting ends on Friday, and we’re close to taking the lead! Please help us replace what we lost by voting for the Bear River Bike Park in the Pump Track Category.
The Bear River Bike Park complements an existing skateboard park located on the Yampa River with views of the Steamboat Ski Area. It is easily accessible, located on the Core Trail that runs through town. The bike park already features a beginner and intermediate area. This grant will fund the expert area, with the goal of maximizing the fun factor! This project will help fill a void left by the loss of the unauthorized “Powerlines Jumps” that were removed last fall. Click here
