Video: Shredding Silver Mountain Bike Park Trails in the Snow

Oct 12, 2019

Silver Mountain is a staple riding spot for anybody in Eastern Washington, the Panhandle of Idaho or Western Montana. The events that they host throughout the year bring people from all around the region and always facilitates an atmosphere unlike many others.

The final day of the season in 2019 turnout to be a doozy. With over a foot of snow at the top of the mountain we weren't sure that they were going to be open. Sure enough they were. Since they were open, a few friends and I went to Silver for one of the most memorable days of the year!

The mountains look a bit different during the summer!


Half way down the mountain was about where the snow started to fade to perfect dirt on closing day! The normal dry and dusty trails were tacky from the two days of rain/snow mixture.


Silveroxx is the celebration of mountain biking at Silver Mountain Bike Park. Every fall, people get the band together one last time to enjoy 3 days of racing, riding bikes, and having fun. Silveroxx has something for everyone, from the legendary top to bottom Super D race, to clinics and group rides. Vertical Earth’s 5th Annual Steeziest Steeze-Off during Silveroxx 2019 always supplies a great time (pictured above).


If you haven't gotten a chance to ride a bike park in the snow you should jump at the next opportunity you get to do so!

And if you haven't made it up to Silver Mountain yet, you better put it on your to do list. https://www.silvermt.com/




Cheers to a great year at Silver Mountain Bike Park!!

 Silver Mountain is a great place to shred! It's always fun to take on a ride after or during the first snow fall of the year. After moving back to NorCal this year, this video makes me miss Eastern Washington.

 Put a stick inside that seat stay and tape it up with some duct tape it'll get you to the bottom for sure!

 It was truly a epic last two days of biking with the snow! It made Goat rodeo and mutten conductor extra spicy! Thank you to everyone that came out throughout the year and made it great! Be ready for more of the best tech riding and long top to bottoms next summer! You can lose your gloves but never lose your stoke! Awohali!

 Silver has some special dirt where a tiny bit of moisture turns it into velcro for your tire.

 I dropped them in the village at the bottom and never found them! I had brought a nice pair of insulated work gloves... Luckily had a normal pair in the truck for the rest of the day!
