Sweetwater Gondola will run from 10 am until 4 pm on Saturday, and will be open to Bike Park season pass holders and guests who purchase a Bike Park lift ticket, providing access to both Teewinot and Sweetwater that day.  There are no beginner trails off the Sweetwater Gondola, so advanced and expert riders only are encouraged to bike the new trails.  No foot passengers will be allowed on the gondola.

“We’re excited to showcase our new downhill trails to the community next Saturday. These trails are longer, more challenging, and provide over 1,000 vertical feet of descent through some of the most beautiful terrain on our mountain. These new trails are a great addition to the existing Bike Park accessed by Teewinot, and we look forward to opening our expanded biking offering next summer.”

– Vice President of Operations, Tim Mason.
