Lee Canyon to open downhill mountain bike park season earlier than expected

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) – After last summer’s downhill mountain bike park season was cut short due to Tropical Storm Hilary, the upcoming season will open earlier than expected at Lee Canyon.

On Monday, June 10, Lee Canyon’s downhill mountain park will open for the summer and fall seasons. The resort will offer youth and adult mountain bike rentals and safety equipment like helmets and elbow and knee pads. The bike park will open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Weekend escape: Go ‘green’ on new Lee Canyon mountain bike trail

“We’re seeing more Las Vegas residents and visitors during the summer season who want new experiences in the mountains,” Lee Canyon’s General Manager Dan Hooper said. “We designed Experience Downhill to be a way for people to have a fun few hours doing a new activity in a safe and stellar environment.”

Lee Canyon sees record growth especially during the off season 

Experience Downhill gives bike riders a guided experience of the bike park’s green trail. It is designed for people aged 13 and older and will be offered daily at 10 a.m., 1 p.m., and 3 p.m. Previous downhill mountain bike experience is not necessary, though people should be confident riding a two-wheel bicycle.
