Mountain Biking

AVSC Mountain Biking

Aspen Valley Ski & Snowboard Club is proud to offer year-round programming for the greater Roaring Fork Valley. Come ride with our coaches who will teach techniques and tactics, while minimizing risk, to everyone from beginners through young expert riders.  We will explore local Roaring Fork Valley trails, whether it’s at the Carbondale or Basalt Bike Parks or multiple lift access trails including "Valhalla" trail at Snowmass, which requires a summer lift pass. Rides include Sky Mountain Park, Smuggler Mountain, Rim Trail, and many more. For more information please contact Jason Cook at jcook@teamavsc.orgPhoto: Austin Colbert, Aspen Times
