Deer Valley Mountain Biking

How do you spend your Wednesdays? We've been spending ours riding down the mountain at Deer Valley. The majority of Park City mountain bikers choose to ride uphill, then downhill, but it's been a long, hot summer, so last Wednesday we decided to treat ourselves. Instead of enduring the brutal workout of climbing uphill, we decied to purchase a Deer Valley lift pass for the day.  A full day pass costs $36 and can be purchased at Snow Park, Silver Lake or Empire Lodge. More often than not, during the summer months we are working on building up our endurance so we can go on longer rides, but this type of riding really helps to build more technical riding confidence. Deer Valley offers tons of trails where you can take your cross country bikes, however trails such as Homeward Bound and Nail Driver over features that are technical and better suited to a downhill bike.  My cross country bike and I can only handle so much, so the next time I step up to the lifts the plan is to rent a downhill bike. Downhill bikes can also be rented at Silver Lake and Snow Park.  

If you are out riding and snap any shots from Behind the Handlebars then you might as well enter Teva's cool contest #BehindTheHandlebars.

Well you can ride your bike up hill which can take anywhere from 2 -5 hours or you can take the Chair lifts at the resort which takes about 5 min. Your call!

Bicycle helmets may help reduce injury in the event of a collision or accident, and a certified helmet is legally required for some riders in some jurisdictions. Helmets are classified as an accessory or an item of clothing by others
