WINDHAM MOUNTAIN RESORT, N.Y. (BRAIN) — A lift-serviced mountain bike park is being developed at Windham Mountain Resort in New York for riders of a wide variety of skills and ages.
Windham is the only U.S. stop of the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup and intends to build on the momentum generated from hosting three World Cup events, including its fourth World Cup Event this weekend (Aug. 7-10).
The bike park will feature flow-style trails accessible from "A Lift", a detachable quad serving the peak of Windham Mountain. New intermediate-level terrain will complement the existing UCI World Cup and Race the World trails. The park will also include a pump track, rentals, lessons, guided tours, retail, and food and beverage.
Windham has hired park designer Gravity Logic, best known for developing Whistler Mountain Bike Park in Canada.
“We chose to partner with the best in the industry,” said Chip Seamans, resort president and general manager. “Our mountain bike park will develop and grow over the next few years as trails and amenities are added."
David Kelly of Gravity Logic said, “We are very excited to work with a resort so close to New York City. Windham has a clear focus and the resort is a perfect venue for our design and style.”
The bike park is also part of a larger vision for the community of Windham. A network of existing cross-country trails is being expanded to provide two-wheel access to restaurants, lodging properties, attractions and the Windham resort.
