downhill mountain biking

whiteface mountain bike park

opening saturday, june 15

The Whiteface Mountain Bike Park has 27 diverse trails that range from beginner, intermediate and expert for the downhill trails and even a few cross-country trails for those that like to climb—something for every ability and riding style. Whiteface also has the greatest vertical drop in the East, so there's a lot of room to roll with 2,500 feet of bike park vertical. For experts, the Cloudsplitter Gondola transports riders to the summit of Little Whiteface. These trails are natural old school DH trails consisting of roots, rocks and plenty of steeps. There are some ski trails and service roads that connect the single-track but for the most part you will enjoy being in the woods on your bike. Lift passes are valid for unlimited runs on the gondola and the shuttle vehicles. Expert riders should expect each run to take between 30 and 40 minutes. For additional info, visit www.downhillmike.com
