The air has officially gotten very crisp here in Winter Park and this means we have the best time of year for heading out on the bike for a ride. Check out the above pictures. I was able to get a great view of Winter Park Resort and down the whole Fraser Valley and then a burly old moose caught my eye right off the single track.
It was an awesome day of biking up and around the old Idlewild Ski Area and the Corona Pass road. The trails up there are known as Broken Thumb and Twisted Ankle and if you are not a bit careful that is what you will end up with.
There is not better time of year to bike up in the Winter Park area than fall. Over at Winter Park Resort the D2, D3 and D4 trails are all in good shape and very fun. Down valley at Solvista there are some great trails and a killer bike park for the more daring. But my favorites, the Idlewild and Rendezvous trails, are in great shape even though there is some serious tree cutting going up in there.
Get the bike out now for snow is a comin’ to Winter Park, CO and we will have a good seven months of snow and skiing. Winter Park Resort opens for skiing on November 17 for the 2010/2011 ski season and now is the time to get training on the bike while the biking is good.
