Sun Valley is already renown for endless miles of backcountry singletrack, but it is also host to flow trails on federal lands and to in-town pump tracks. Thanks to the efforts of Sun Valley ski resort the area will soon also have a critical but oft-overlooked component: family-friendly lift-accessed trails.
Project partners Trail Solutions and Alpine Bike Parks are on the ground, working closely with Sun Valley Company's Julian Tyo, to bring to life a green flow trail on Bald Mountain that will appeal to families as much as to experienced riders. The uplift will take some of the sting out of the rarified air and also allow visitors to enjoy the stunning views. The trail is scheduled to be open for Summer 2014 with more construction planned as soon as the snow clears next year.
