If you go

A fall bike preview pass costs $25 and is available at the Gondola Square ticket office at Steamboat Ski Area. It is required for any bike, in addition to a regular summer gondola ticket for the rider. Downhill mountain bikes — more sturdy with much larger shocks than regular bikes — are available for rent at the ski area base.





A rider flies off a wooden jump on the advanced downhill trail Buckin' Bronc at Steamboat Ski Area. Experts can hit the jump, and the wooden ramp below the rider is available for those less inclined to get air.
