Solitude Bike Park - Phase 1 opened

Phase 1 opened with four new downhill mountain bike trails designed by Gravity Logic! This phase adds 6 miles of new trails and consists of a green freeride trail, a blue freeride trail, a blue technical trail, and a black technical trail. All four trails are accessed via Moonbeam Express. Trail work will continue this fall and over the next few summers. Donít worry about schlepping your gear. High-quality Trek and Norco bike rentals for kids and adults are available at The Moonbeam Base Area.

WHAT TO EXPECT

With limited weekends remaining in the season, Solitudeís lift operations staff is focusing their efforts on the Eagle Express upgrade. Moonbeam Express will open with one bike carrier for every five chairs (half the bike hauling capacity expected by next summer) causing longer wait times at the lift. Visit our webcams page or YouTube channel for live feeds of the Moonbeam lift line and Moonbeam parking lot.

Some sections of these new trails are currently under construction. While trail crews work to complete the lower section of Cobalt Cruise (blue freeride trail) riders will take a detour via Serenity to return to Moonbeam Express.

Technical trails Holy Schist and Mine Shaft will be accessed by temporary connection trails. Mine Shaft will also return to Moonbeam Express via a temporary connector. Refer to on-mountain signage for navigation, usage, and safety instructions.

Moonbeam, Sunrise, and Link chairlifts operate Friday through Sunday. Trails will be closed Monday through Thursday as trail building continues. The use of e-bikes currently is not permitted at Solitude. Helmets are required on lifts, trails, and during lessons for all biking activities at Solitude. Check the Mountain Report daily for updated lift and trail status. Conditions are expected to remain dynamic throughout the summer as trail building continues, and we replace Eagle Express.
