Boreal Mountain Resort, a.k.a Woodward Tahoe is getting a brand new lift-serviced mountain bike park.

The new bike park will feature flow lines that incorporate natural elements, wooden features and obstacles such as berms, wall rides and jumps. Trails and flow lines will vary in difficulty for beginner to advanced riders. “The goal in designing the Woodward Tahoe bike park is to create a fun and unique experience that represents Woodward’s commitment to innovative facilities,” commented Jake Kinney, mountain biking pro and action sports director at Woodward West in Tehachapi, California. “We want riders of all abilities and ages to enjoy the time they spend on their bike and feel confident with their riding.”

The park should be up and running by early July 2017. Sounds like a cool place to roll by this summer. For the official word from Woodward, please follow the jump.

NEW LIFT-ACCESSED MOUNTAIN BIKE PARK COMING TO WOODWARD TAHOE

Alpine Bike Parks to Lead Design and Construction of New Flow Bike Park

LAKE TAHOE, Calif., May 17, 2017 – Woodward, the leader in youth lifestyle and action-sports programming, announced today the building of a new lift-served mountain bike park at Woodward Tahoe located at Boreal Mountain Resort in Lake Tahoe, California.

The new bike park will feature flow lines that incorporate natural elements, wooden features and obstacles such as berms, wall rides and jumps. Trails and flow lines will vary in difficulty for beginner to advanced riders. “The goal in designing the Woodward Tahoe bike park is to create a fun and unique experience that represents Woodward’s commitment to innovative facilities,” commented Jake Kinney, mountain biking pro and action sports director at Woodward West in Tehachapi, California. “We want riders of all abilities and ages to enjoy the time they spend on their bike and feel confident with their riding.”

The new mountain bike park will round out Woodward Tahoe’s existing bike facilities that include The Bunker and The Trenches, which have a BMX focus. The Bunker is an indoor 33,000 square foot action sports facility with trampolines, pump track, concrete skate and bike park, mini ramp, and mini-mega ramps to foam and Resi™ landings.

“At Woodward Tahoe, we invite kids to get outside and let us introduce them to the mountains and nature,” said Phoebe Mills, director at Woodward Tahoe. “Recently, we’ve seen a major uptick in interest from our mountain bike campers, and we want to deliver on that by investing in the most amazing mountain bike-specific facilities that will also complement our BMX offerings.”

In partnership with Alpine Bike Parks, construction on the new Woodward Tahoe mountain bike park will begin in early June and is slated for completion in early July. The bike park will be available for Mountain Bike Summer Camp which begins on July 9, and for early Bunker season which begins August 18.

To access the park, bikers will take the Castle Park chairlift and ride flow trails of varying ability down the eastern side of the mountain. The bike park trails will flow into existing dirt trails known as The Trenches.

During Bunker season, the bike park will operate daily from August 18 through Labor Day, and then Friday through Sunday until early October. The bike park will be included in the price of a Bunker Season Pass and a Daily Session.

The new mountain bike park is one way Woodward Tahoe instills creativity, courage and empowerment among its participants. At Woodward, handpicked coaches inspire and mentor kids to excel through enduring community-building, personal growth experiences, and just plain camp fun.

Originally founded in 1970 as a summer camp in Woodward, Pennsylvania, Woodward remains steadfast as a leader and disruptor in action sports and athletic activities. While at any one of Woodward’s world-class facilities across the globe, kids of all ages and athletic abilities are given the tools to thrive through creative expression in skateboarding, BMX, gymnastics, cheer, snowboarding, freeskiing, scooter, parkour, mountain bike, and dance, as well as technology and music. More than camp, Woodward empowers young athletes with a unique balance of skill advancement, mentorship and cultural immersion, and for many, Woodward offers impactful, life-changing perspectives that transcend the walls of it’s facilities.
