Ski Areas’ Growing Interest in Bike Parks Supported by IMBA-backed Legislation

IMBA has long supported the development of bike parks at ski resorts as a way to increase riding opportunities, and this includes lobbying in favor of last year's Ski Area Recreational Opportunity Enhancement Act, which eased the permitting burden of ski areas wishing to develop bike parks on lands leased from federal land management agencies. This article by the Outdoor Industry Association (OIA) indicates the continued interest by ski areas in creating mountain bicycling opportunities and points to the economic benefits of such development.

Trail Solutions has worked with over two dozen ski resorts in the US, including Vail (CO), Sun Valley (ID), Winter Park (CO), Mammoth Mountain (CA), Seven Springs (PA), and Timberline Lodge (OR).
