June has arrived, and with it comes summer hours! We are now open seven days a week.

After a bit of a dry and dusty spell, we’re enjoying a few days of scattered showers this week. Most of the rain has been hitting overnight, leaving us with fresh hero dirt every morning. If you’re staying home this weekend, you’re missing out!

Trail Crew is opening up more and more terrain around the mountain, and we’re rapidly approaching the start of summer camp. Keep reading for all of the latest updates!

Trail Crew recently dropped the ropes on Upper Hellion! Typically we aren’t able to finish work on full Hellion until mid-June, so getting it at the end of May has us all pretty stoked. Several of the wooden features were rebuilt as well. Shoutout to the crew for putting in some incredible work this season!

Per usual, Rob and Jamie have taken the lead on getting the dirt jumps up and running. Both lines in Lower Sherwood have opened to the public! Upper Sherwood and Pirates Cove are on deck.

Ropes dropped most recently on Meadows End and Eastern Hemlock. The crew is currently working on Power Hour.

You can keep an eye on our Conditions page for the latest updates regarding trail work and new openings!


Kick start your summer season with a strong skills base, refined riding techniques, and increased confidence! Women’s Gravity Weekend brings together women from all riding backgrounds with the goal of setting you up for a successful season of progression with all of the tools you’ll need to reach your goals. Plus, it’s a great way to make new friends in the downhill community!

Participation includes a full day of clinic instruction, park access, and lunch. Participants also receive a voucher for a free day pass to come back later in the season and enjoy their new skills!

The program is offered on both Saturday and Sunday. Visit our website for a list of coaches, the day’s schedule, and testimonials from last year’s participants.
