The bike park has trails for all skill levels, including the Gnarnia trail for beginners and the Schralp d'Huez for intermediate riders. Advanced riders will enjoy the Taco Sauce trail and the Osteoblast Pro Jump Line. The pump track is no charge to use and is for all skill levels.
The Hilltop staff thanks the community for their continued support and making the opening of the new bike park possible. Trevor Bird, Hilltop Ski Area's General Manager, is excited for the future of the park.
"We are so excited to see the past 18 months of this project come together. I can't wait to see all of the riders at various skill levels test out the park. We have a lot more in store for Hilltop and want to thank all the community members that helped make this bike park happen.
Hilltop Ski Area is an Alaskan non-profit dedicated to developing recreational and educational opportunities for Anchorage youth. The non-profit relies on community donations and corporate sponsorships to continue providing ski lessons and developing the park to provide fun activities and opportunities for Alaska's kids and families.
