Beech Mountain Bike Park opens for the season on May 27th, offering new terrain for all ability levels. Beech Mountain Resort is in a multi-year partnership with Elevated Trail Design. This year’s park expansion focuses on segments 1, 2, 3, and 10 of the multi-year plan. Patrons will notice a fresh face-lift on all the trails providing a completely NEW feel for Beech Mountain.
What’s NEW for 2017:
-Enhancements will offer more terrain for all levels of riders.
-The park layout will give familiar trails a fresh outlook i.e. the “AM” track will be two blue-level trails (one more technical, one more flowy)
-Old and new trails will have added features, allowing opportunity for progression and airtime.
-The new blue trail will offer more of a flow-oriented style, while still utilizing rocks and natural features. Progressive options will appeal to a wide variety of riders.
-The Pro GRT race courses will be fully prepped and include new fresh terrain.
-The green trail is re-worked from the summer road to the village, to offer the best possible learning experience for less experienced riders.
-Elevated Trail Design is training Beech Mountain Resort park crew to ensure quality experience throughout the season .
-Black Bear (Pro-Track) is getting a major facelift on the upper half of the track; opening up some fresh cuts to bring back the feel it had when it was first opened.
-The open sections near the summit will be updated and maintenanced.
-Both of the blue main trails will have advanced option lines, featuring rock features, gap jumps,and step downs.
-The new trail will have very flow-oriented terrain but will preserve the existing rugged downhill. Both sides of the downhill experience are being maintained and celebrated.
