New Elemental Bike Park at Suicide Six to open in July

WOODSTOCK— Construction of the new Suicide Six Elemental Bike Park is underway with facilities scheduled to open in July.

“The Suicide Six Elemental Bike Park furthers the mission of the Woodstock Inn & Resort to remain a vibrant, year-round destination for both travelers and the community,” said Gary Thulander, president and general manager of the Woodstock Inn & Resort. “We encourage our guests to enrich their resort experiences by trying new activities while also exploring the town of Woodstock and its surrounding areas.”

The Woodstock Inn & Resort is in partnership with Sinuosity. Flowing Trails, is constructing 6 miles of mountain biking trails that will be accessible via the Suicide Six Ski Area’s quad chairlift. With a variety of progressive terrain, the bike park will offer fun for all ages and skill levels.

Design plans include pump tracks, a Strider park for even the youngest riders, and a skills development area designed to develop confidence and technique. Additionally, advanced riders will find technical downhill-specific runs and flowing jump lines. Certified coaches, premium bike rentals, scenic chair rides, hiking, craft beer and farm-to-table fare will also be available for guests.

Recognized as one of the oldest ski areas in the country, Suicide Six has a rich history. Opened in 1936, Suicide Six will now be a year-round destination, allowing families to experience authentic Vermont throughout the seasons.

The Elemental Bike Park at Suicide Six will be  open seven days a week with lift access on Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. through October.
