Powder Mountain Resort’s Bike Patrollers are in position and ready to respond to injuries in the bike park during operating hours. The phone number for patrol dispatch is 801-745-3772 ext 3. We recommend carrying your cell phone with you when riding and having this number saved in your phone in case of an emergency. For emergencies outside of the bike park or on our cross country trails, dial 9-1-1. If you have questions about the park, the Mountain Biker's Responsibility Code, or trail conditions; don't hesitate to stop in to the Patrol Shack at the top of the Hidden Lake Lift.
Multi-Use Trail Emergency
Please respect Powder Mountain property and be wary of resort vehicles. Multi-use trails are considered a backcountry experience to be used at your own risk, with no patrol or services offered. In the event of an emergency, call 911. We recommend carrying your cell phone with you when riding, in case of an emergency.

Class 1 E-Bikes are permitted on the Multi-Use Trail network as part of the Utah Recreation Code 57-14-2.
Class 1 E-bikes under 60 lbs are allowed on the Hidden Lake lift and allowed for downhill use in the bike park for ticketed riders. No uphill riding. Class 2 or 3 or E-Bikes with a throttle are not allowed!
Notice to Riders, Parents and Guardians
Mountain Biking is a fun sport the entire family can enjoy. By taking safety precautions, risk of injury can be reduced. We offer a progression of trails to suit various ability levels. We suggest wearing full-face helmets, full-fingered gloves, and biking armor. A full-suspension downhill bike should be used on downhill trails. More challenging terrain features should not be attempted without the appropriate experience, skills and equipment. Our lift-accessed downhill trails are a different experience than cross country trails. Downhill biking requires constant physical and mental effort to maintain control. There are no green “easy” runs from the top of the mountain.
Children under 5 are not permitted on the lift-accessed Bike Park trails. We recommend that children under 12 are accompanied by a parent or guardian.
All bikes must have functioning brakes on each wheel. Coaster brakes/beach cruisers are not allowed on chairlifts. Disc brakes are recommended for adequate stopping power.
Full suspension is recommended on lift-accessed trails. Make sure your suspension is tuned properly for your weight and ability. Downhill trails are designed for full-suspension mountain bikes due to the rocky/bumpy nature of the trails.
Helmets are required on all trails. We recommend full-face helmets for downhill trails. Helmet rentals are available at the Hidden Lake Bike & Rental Shop.
Equipment and Clothing
Protective clothing and equipment is the best protection from injury. Full-face helmets, body armor and pads, full-fingered gloves, closed-toe/closed-heel shoes and long sleeves/pants are also recommended. Helmet and armor rentals are available at Village Rentals. Riders should use a properly-sized bike that allows you to stand over the seat of the bike with your feet flat on the ground. If you are not sure, please visit Hidden Lake Bike & Rental Shop.
Bikes are permitted on the Hidden Lake Lift. Riders are responsible for loading their own bikes, but lift operators are available for assistance. A Bike Park Ticket is required for lift-accessed trails and can be purchased online or at the Hidden Lake lodge.
All trails are marked with signs stating trail difficulty level. Similar to skiing, green trails are the easiest, blue are intermediate and black trails are expert-only. Please choose appropriate trails and stay within your ability. See the trail map for trail descriptions. Signs also mark road and hiking trail intersections. Be aware of road crossings and yield to all vehicles on the road. Stay on designated trails. Do not ride on summer / fire roads.
