Summary:
skibowl claims to have 40 miles of trails, i counted 18. the "easy trail" is a dirt road filled with loose rock, the pro downhill course is ok but you need at least 8 inches of suspension to enjoy it. there is a trail called gnar-gnar, its like a slalom course but it has seen years of skidding, the turns are eroded badly and it's not really much fun.... half way down gnar-gnar there is an unmarked trail that leads in to the woods, it is an extremely eroded trail that has never seen any maintenance.. it leads to 3 trails, an expert free ride trail, beginner freeride trail and one very short all mountain trail... the entire park is a breaking section, i was only able to open up on sections of the short gnar-gnar trail... if you're an all mountain rider or XC rider, there is nothing here for you, you will not have fun.... the beginner and expert free ride trails are very well built and well thought out, they have excellent flow and are very good. but not long enough to warrant the 30 bucks in gas, 40 bucks in lift tickets plus lunch.

Recommended Route:
once you get to the top (40 min) you can only go left, there are only two choices to get down, the dirt road or the pro downhill course... once you're 3/4s of the way down you'll come to gnar-gnar, then half way down gnar-gnar you'll take a left on the unmarked and unnamed trail, then you have 3 choices.

if you come to ride the free ride trails, don't bother with chair lift tickets, the bottom is right at the chair lift and the whole freeride trail only drops 100 feet, just push your bike up Gnar-gnar

Other recommended trails in the same area:
pioneer bridal trail is 25 times better, its smooth, hard, fast and has flow.

Summary:
finding opening dates impossible, no web site maintenance, no updates and nobody is going to answer the phone, the web site has two web cams, one cam shows people riding and the other cam showed the chair lift with no bikes on it. both web cams show no snow. no updates, useful information or maintenance on their twitter page or their facebook page... no bike shop in town, no bike shop with in a 100 mile radius. no bike shop knows or seems to care... it couldn't be that hard to give rudimentary communication, even smoke signals or pointing and grunting would be better than nothing.

Recommended Route:
i havn't got that far yet

Other recommended trails in the same area:
