2019 Giants Ridge Mountain Biking Season Pass: $125.00
We will kick off the 2019 season at Giants Ridge, with two purpose-built gravity mountain bike trails, with more trails in construction progress throughout the season.
The two distinct, different trails include optional “B” lines. Served by the NEW Sarajevo Express chairlift, the trail levels are considered intermediate to advanced and are built to enhance rider enjoyment and fun!
The trails are located south of the Garmisch ski run and are being built by Rock Solid Trail Contracting of Copper Harbor, Michigan.
LeapFrog is a flowy intermediate trail that’s a good introduction to gravity riding for most mountain bikers with previous single-track experience. Riders will encounter rollers, berms, rock features, and jump opportunities. All features are rollable so that riders can work up to jumping. Much like the name of the trail suggests, “LeapFrog” is a great opportunity for riders to hone their leaping skills. Optional intermediate/advanced B-lines exist. LeapFrog meanders through the majestic Superior National Forest and is an excellent showcase of Giants Ridge’s rugged beauty.
Sector 12 is gravity riding at its finest and is sure to excite event the most-experienced gravity mountain bikers. Sector 12 contains all the elements of a true bike park style trail, including: massive berms, big jumps, fun flowy rollers, rock drops in quick succession, bouldery rock gardens, all experienced at a high rate of speed. Although Sector 12 is designed to put you in the air, your tires don’t need to leave the ground unless you choose. Optional extremely difficult B-lines exist, which include rock drops and even a gap jump. Sector 12 showcases the GIANT granite boulders that are plentiful on the mountain.
Both trails return to the Sarajevo Express lift via the paved Mesabi Trail.
All summer recreational offerings, including mountain biking, are subject to change.
