Let's start with the basics. What type of biking are you interested in doing?

Downhill Mountain Biking

Downhill bikes are built for stability at speeds and confidence in steep and rocky terrain. A Downhill Bike Rental is your best bet to enjoy your day in the Snowmass Bike Park safely and confidently. All Downhill Bike Rentals include helmet and pad rental.

Mountain Biking

Lighter than downhill bikes, mountain bikes will save you some extra work while you're climbing uphill between downhill sections, allowing you to get more out of your day and your legs!
Mountain bikes are not intended for use in Snowmass Bike Park and pads are NOT included. If you're planning a day at the bike park, you may be looking for a Downhill Bike Rental instead.

Cruiser Biking
