mountain rules

Welcome to summer in the big, blue sky. Where hiking-boot-mornings turn into bikini-afternoons, paddles and oars are chosen as wisely as swinging clubs, and a perfectly banked downhill mountain bike line is worshiped as much as a perfectly seared scallop.

Where to start?

Mountain Rules are here to help.

Snowshoe's infamous Bike Park

Featuring one of the largest trail systems in the East, Snowshoe’s Bike Park includes nearly 40 trails and 1,500 feet of vertical. It’s also home to the largest bike rental fleet in the region and a lesson program that’s second to none. Oh, and the USAC Nationals are landing right here this July.

Hit The Park

Off-Road Adventure Tours

Hop in a 4-seat Polaris RZR or ACE 1-seater for the thrill of going off road to experience the best of Snowshoe's backcountry. Our more technical, adrenaline filled ACE tour scales Silver Creek's rocky terrain and is truly a technical off road adventure, while the more serene RZR tour features long climbs to scenic views, including the Cheat Mountain Ridge Fire Tower.
