The back-and-forth weather throughout the winter here in Ontario has meant that biking has never been far from our minds. With the Toronto Bike Show coming up this weekend, and Opening Day less than 80 days away, we thought it was prime time for an update.
After a few summers of continued expansion that saw the addition of three new trails built in cooperation with Gravity Logic, the focus has turned to making sure that our existing trail network is up to par. Trail Crew unleashed their creativity on Shot Glass and Squeeker last summer, breathing new life into trails that hadn’t seen much change since they were originally built. The plan is to continue this revamping trend throughout the summer, opening up new lines throughout the mountain.
We also have some exciting news coming to the Blue Mountain Bike Park this summer in terms of events. The East Coast Open has been our feature downhill race for the past few years, and we’re excited to announce that this year it has gained status as a sanctioned Canada Cup Downhill race! In addition, to the East Coast Open we’ve also confirmed the return of our Skills Camp, this year featuring Geoff Gulevich as the Head Coach. Geoff will be at the Blue Mountain Bike Park for, not one, not two, but seven full days of coaching in July for our classic Adult Camp, and an all new Teen Camp.
Of course, your key to it all is a 2016 Blue Mountain Bike Park Season Pass, and passes go back on sale starting Friday, March 4, 2016, at the Bike Show Special rate of $219 +HST. If you didn't pick up your Blue Mountain Bike Park Season Pass at the end of last year during the Fall Renewal period, this weekend is the time to do it as rates go up on Monday, March 7. Season Passes will be available online
and from our booth at the Toronto International Bike Show.
