PRESS RELEASE: Mammoth Bike Park

The Mammoth Bike Park is set to open for the 2022 season today. With plenty of late-spring precip over the last month, the dirt is prime and the lower trail system is ready to roll. For the opener, access is via shuttle from the village to the lower mountain.

Trails open today include:

o Downtown
o Uptown
o Big Ring
o Shotgun
o Smooth Operator
o Paper Route
o Timber Ridge
o Juniper
o Gopher Trail

A full schedule of events is on offer this holiday weekend, including live music and all the Mammoth Yacht Club festivities, it’s going to be a good weekend in the Eastern Sierra.

We’ll be opening more trails as soon as conditions on the mountain allow. The Mammoth Bike Park Facebook page is the best resource for up-to-the minute updates.

 nice. Snow Valley opened last weekend.

Why is Snow Summit waiting until June 9th??? They are missing out on a big holiday weekend and people are ready to ride!

 They seem to be doing a couple of sizable rebuilds in certain sections of the park. Could have something to do with it.

 Missing two out of the three race weekends up there too. I wouldn't mind a park day with the GF Saturday before my racing Sunday.

 How does Snow Valley compare to Snow Summit? I've only ever been to Snow Summit, but am going down there around July 4th, so might be open to hitting both up.

 I'd say the biggest difference is the dirt. It is loose at SV. I found myself gong to SV over SS in the last few years due to the crowds at SS. I do like the trails at SS better, especially the jump lines, but there are plenty of jumps at SV. It is significantly cheaper at $179 for a season pass and just $20 for Friday Twilight. On a twilight session, I'd get 7-8 runs in, which can be more than at SS on a busy weekend. I'd say go and try it out.

 As Koyota93 said above... its a trip the type of dirt differences between there SS and skypark considering the same mountain range. SV is a nice change up and mammoth feel with the surfing, cool jump line, not too much tech there besides that one splitting treeline I forget the run name. Its cheaper and the line is minimal and saves you about 45 mins round trip not having to go all the way up to bear. Not my priority and if I had to choose I would go to summit all day but valley is a nice change up, more parks in socal the better in my opinion curious to see what mt high comes up with this year.

 In addition to the other comments, there are no wooden features at snow valley. There are large dirt jumps, techy singletrack, and a dual slalom course.

 SV is still pretty new, and was (is?) being run by the folks across the street at Rim Nordic. They have improved every year. I would expect more to come.

 I saw Kyle and Rachel Strait and family riding at Snow Valley on Sunday! I imagine they can ride anywhere they want, it was cool to see famous mtbers checking out the local park.
