Electric Mountain Biking

Like Winter Park (just 15 miles away), Snow Mountain is an ideal and popular location for mountain biking and electric mountain biking, sometimes called e-biking or e-mountain biking. Electric bikes make it possible for you to go a little further (and higher) than you might be able to with a regular bike. Plus, for kids and teenagers, using an electric bike is still a great workout, but so much more fun.

Expansive Trails

Winter park offers one of the most expansive trail systems in the U.S. There are dozens of both easy, moderate, and challenging biking trails, like the easy Silvers trail and Sunset trail to the slightly more difficult Just and Heckmen trails. For the adventurous, there are singletrack trails, like Endo Valley, Totally Wired and Mill Gulch. Our knowledgeable electric mountain bike specialists can help you pick the perfect trail for your family.
