Great season for Trestle at Winter Park Resort
September 27, 2016
Trestle Bike Park closed out their season with a great final weekend. Winter Park Resort saw snow both Friday, September 23 and Saturday, September 24, but this did not stop riders from coming out and enjoying the end of downhill mountain bike season. Both mornings, riders faced snow on the trails and freezing cold hands to get in their last rides of the season. Even as riders struggled to grip their handlebars for more than a few minutes at a time, the level of enjoyment was very high throughout the resort.
Winter Park Resort Director of Public Relations and Communications, Steve Hulbert said Trestle's closing weekend was consistent with every weekend at Trestle this summer.
"I think there were definitely some people who braved the weather to get some final Trestle laps in, but every weekend has been super busy," Hulbert said.
"It's testament of how popular Trestle is and how rapidly the sport of downhill mountain biking is growing."
Downhillers finished off their day with the Hops and Handlebars event that featured great, free music.
Locals and visitors of Grand County will now begin to gear up for ski season. The snow at Trestle did not seem to disappoint most bicyclists. Instead, conversations could be heard throughout the resort of how the snow was only making them more excited for ski season.
Winter Park Resort plans to open for skiing on November 16.
