Trail Description
About this trail
With nearly 40 trails and 1,500 vertical feet of descent, the park has something to offer everyone. Riders new to the sport will love our machine-groomed trails to build confidence. Experienced mountain bikers will relish expert terrain with berms, jump lines and man-made features. Best of all, the entire park is serviced by chairlifts and shuttles, so you'll never have to pedal back up the mountain.

Review: Basin Area side of the Mountain is fun for quick rides on the Trail rig but the Western Territory has the sweet long descents with so many great trail options flowing off of Skyline that will really test your suspension setup. Dreamweaver, Skyline, Ninja Bob and D to DD were some of our favorite routes we got to run down the mountain but it's all good here! So much fun and you have 360° mountain views from up top! A must ride!

Review: This is the best riding in the East. This is the only DH park that can compete with the West. What a blast!

Review: Wicked trails from rugged cross country to all the downhill ride the lift craziness you could ever want! All skill levels can shred. Deluxe accommodations and tons of alternative adventure activities. World class high end mountain actives, WV gives up the most natural background and snowshoe has painted a masterpiece of a downhill trail system!

Review: I'm more of an all mountain/trail rider. DH isn't my true discipline, however I had a blast here. I ran an open face helmet and light knee pads so I stuck with the green and blue trails. Even so, there are many features that allow you to test and hone your riding skills. Pumping, getting good body position. This is one of the few places as a trail rider where I could get air. This s place is a blast. Can't wait to go back.

Review: One of the best gravity parks I've ridden. Green trail is a good warm up with a pump track at the bottom by the lake. I spent most of my time on the western slope where the trails are a little longer. The mountain has tons of other activities on it as well. Bike shop is well stocked with parts in case of a mechanical as well as a large fleet of rentals. One note, I had zero reception on the mountain, stop into the Old Spruce for wifi and a great beer selection.

Review: I was very impressed with Snowshoe's Bike Park! The Basin side has excellent tech sections, pretty much all the letter trails to the rider's right (A-K) will put your skills to the test. Sketchy as shit in the wet!

Even the green run "Easy Street" is fun and a good way to end the day. Sections M and O have really good tech bits too.

Unfortunately during my visit most of the Western Territory was closed because of the Pro GRT race. Ninja Bob, Ball and Jack, and Powerline were all open though so I rode the shit out of them. Missing Link is a great trail too. It's a black diamond, but there's nothing really big on it. It's just steep. Tons of berms though.

The backcountry trails at Snowshoe are also a lot of fun. Go check out the fire tower and take the 6000 Steps trail back down to Shavers Lake.

Review: Couldn't have been a better opening weekend! The trail crew really did a great job getting the park ready for summer 2016. Stop some wet seeping portions, but a few more dry days should take care of that!

Review: Love this place. Great place to test any type of riders skill. I recommend a good DH/Enduro Bike. I wrecked my XC/Trail bike. Recommend a full face helmet, and neck brace, knee pads and elbow pads. I wish i had elbow pads in my wreck. lol. I have the wreck on Youtube, Just look up SnowShoe Bike wreck, youll find it.
