Powderhorn Bike Park

Things to do

Mountain Biking

After the snow melts, the Powderhorn ski area offers Western Slope riders a wide array of cycling options. From the top of the Flat Top Flyer lift (which runs on summer weekends), mountain bikers have three trails to choose from: Stagecoach (easy), Blue Ribbon (intermediate), and Pinball Alley (most difficult.) For a longer ride, hop on the West Bench Trail, which runs eight miles to Mesa Lakes in Grand Mesa National Forest. You can buy a single-ride ticket for $12, an all-day pass for $25 or a season pass for $139.

Pro Tips

  • Riders on West Bench Trail are required to check in with ski patrol, and all riders should check in at the rental shop before riding the lift.
  • Hikers are also allowed on trails so be sure to keep a lookout.
  • Make it an overnight trip by booking a room or cabin at Mesa Lakes Lodge at the end of the West Bench Trail. They even have a bar and restaurant

Recommended season(s): Summer.
