Soldier Mountain offers nine miles of forested and subalpine singletrack, with world-class beginner and intermediate trails and two challenging expert trails.

The resort is hosting the National Interscholastic Cycling Association’s Idaho Chapter youth mountain bike races on Sept. 16 for the second consecutive year. Last year’s event drew 650 youth riders from Idaho and neighboring states and about 1,300 spectators. Spectators can ride the chairlift uphill during the NICA race and walk down the mountain.

Soldier Mountain encourages visitors to dry camp in its parking lot at no cost and enjoy the weekend there. The resort’s outdoor bathrooms will be open 24/7 to accommodate campers.
