Deer Valley Opens for Biking and Hiking


Deer Valley, UT June 15, 2004 - Lift-served mountain biking is available from the Silver Lake Lodge at mid-mountain via the Sterling chairlift and for the first time ever the Snow Park Lodge via the Silver Lake Express chairlift.

Bikers and their bikes are transported to Silver Lake Village and the top of Bald and Bald Eagle Mountains where they can choose from an array of single- and double-track trails. Experienced bikers may choose one of our multi-use trails to ride up and bypass the lift. Deer Valley's Bike Rental Shop offers bike rentals, repairs and essential equipment for the rider. Deer Valley operates its own Mountain Bike School, offering mountain tours and trail riding clinics.

The Sterling and Silver Lake Express chairlifts also transport hikers and sightseers up the mountain. At the top, hikers may leave the lift and explore over 20 miles of pristine multi-use trails, including a paved walking path to the Scenic Overlook. After exploring the area, they may either reboard the lift to return to the base or walk down one of the designated hiking trails.
