The winter months are slowly beginning to fade into a distant memory as fresh new growth emblazons the surrounding
landscapes. The signs of spring help to revitalize our senses. The daylight hours seem to stretch moments longer with
each passing day. The warmth of the sun's beams are now finding more success in warding off any lingering chill in
the air. With new life imploding around us, how can we not yearn for the endless days of summer and shredding bike
Busy day in and day out throughout the winter, we held on to our Silver Star film footage. Now, in the clutches of
spring fever, we've put together our Silver Star Bike Park edit in hopes of getting fellow riders amped for summer
With an early bonus weekend of June 23 & 24 and opening full-time on June 29, 2012, Silver Star Resort offers lift
accessed, progressive trails, no crowds, crisp, alpine-scented air, expansive views; what more could a rider ask for?
What can I say about Silver Star Bike Park? Every time I've visited has truly been an enjoyable experience. You're
always welcomed with a relaxed vibe due to the carefree spirit which seems to encompass the patrons and employees
Just strolling about the resort village never seems to fail in bringing a smile to anyone's face with the palate of Day-Glo
colored buildings animating the immediate mountain skyline along with full suspension bikes sprawled throughout the
grass quad in the village center. Just past this, lying await in the background, is the perfect playground for a mountain
Twisting tracks ramble through thickets of evergreens only to burst forth at times into expanses of flowering meadows.
Everywhere in between a rider can happen upon mellow, roving trails, rocky, technical descents, or jump lines ranging
in size and skill requirement.
It's a splendid place to go and explore different trails and features, ideal for honing biking skills at any level.
It's pretty awesome to be able to go out and shred groomed trails down a huge mountain, and once you have reached
the bottom, to just be able to hop on a lift and go do it all over again. Rad. Similar to any avid bicyclist, I can only
but meagerly attempt to describe in a jumble of sentences how it is to ride an area. So on a parting note, I want to
encourage everyone to go out and make their own story.
