Ready to Roll!

The Blue Bird Quad is tuned and primed and our mountain bike trails we be 100% open as we kick off the summer season. Tuesday’s rainstorm has put our single track in great condition: trails are firm and tacky and FAST in most places.

For those who prefer to stay on their own two feet, there’s still plenty to enjoy: the slopes are verdant and already filled with wildflowers, and the clear weather has been providing us with SPECTACULAR Bird’s eye views.

We invite you to check out the photos in the gallery below – and be sure to join us tomorrow for FREE lift rides during our Summer Chairlift Grand Opening.

    Rode from Bear Basin over to lower Growler down and then up Elk Trail this morning. Trail is NOT in tip top shape. Drifts and tree down in Hidden Valley area. Much erosion from water down the trail. Wouldn’t take much to clear tree and snow. Hope you get on it this afternoon. Trail will still be pretty sketchy for some riders.

      Hi Fred –
      Thanks for taking the time to write in. I know our crew got to a couple of those things before we opened, I have passed your comments along to the trail crew supervisor to make sure the others get checked out before we re-open Wednesday. We had pretty good reviews from most riders over the weekend, but we always like to hear input so we know how to best improve the experience. Thanks!

    Bought the summer pass and rode Elk trail a couple of times on Saturday. Had a great time! Yes there were a few rough patches and a mud bog at a switchback but that added to the adventure. The spring runoff is still happening so the mud will dry up soon. The biggest improvement this year is the signage. All the trails are marked well. Hopefully the hikers won’t end up on a bike trail this year. We are so lucky to have a place like Brundage in our back yard.

      Hi Colleen –
      Thanks for sharing your experience with us. As you mentioned, we expect the soggier parts of the trail to dry up soon. I’m glad our efforts to improve the signage are making a difference. We also do our best to talk to each visitor about what they plan to do once on top. We’re not always successful at steering them to the right trail but we are definitely trying to make sure the bikes go on bike trails and the hikers go on hiking trails. Hope to see you again soon!
