There is no better way to see the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountain than on the seat of a bike, taking a stroll or letting Blue Mountain Ski Area do all the work by taking a lift ride up and down. This is Blue Mountain's second season of lift access disc golf and downhill mountain biking. These exciting summer adventures kick off May 22 at 9 a.m. in the Valley at Blue Mountain Ski Area.

Blue Mountain has teamed up with Vertical Earth to provide you the region's most thrilling gravity experience for all levels of riding. This year we have 15 downhill mountain bike trails for your enjoyment. The mountain biking season opens with a LeMann's Super D race with over $5,000 in cash and prizes.

The two disc golf courses are open for all abilities, the Skyline Park Course and the Valley Course! Each hole delivers unique challenges, breath taking views, and enormous fun. Don't worry about walking back up. They run the lift.

Blue Mountain will be open every weekend from May 22 to Oct. 31, with the exception of July 4 weekend. Hours of operation for Disc Golf and Mountain Biking are from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
