That’s right, Horseshoe Resort is offering lift-accessed downhill mountain biking as of this Thursday, July 1st. We got a sneak peak on Friday courtesy of the resort and altough there are only two runs open (the creatively named Trail One and Trail Two) they’re really fun. The trail builders are passionate riders and have been busting their asses to get these trails running. Two more trails will be added within the next two weeks. With lots of rolling, flowing terrain and fast, clay-packed berms, it’s definitely a hoot ripping down these vertically-challenged runs.
Lift tickets are tentatively $20 for four hours or $24 for 10 am to dusk.
With so many liability issues in Ontario regarding mountain bikes, it’s great to see Horseshoe giving it the old college try. They’re supporting us, so let’s hope Ontario’s downhilling community reciprocates. See you out there!
