June 17, 2011
Deer Valley’s lift-served mountain biking, hiking and scenic ride summer operations will begin on Friday, June 17, 2011.
Deer Valley will open the Silver Lake Express and Sterling Express chairlifts as well as the Ruby chairlift which is new to the summer operation on Friday June 17, 2011. Due to the amount of snow still on the trails, Silver Lake Express chairlift from the Snow Park Base area will offer scenic rides and limited mountain biking on Devo, Four Point and Tour Des Homes trails. Sterling Express chairlift from Silver Lake at mid-mountain and Ruby Express chairlift from Empire Canyon will only offer scenic chairlift rides. New biking and hiking trails will open as conditions permit.
Deer Valley’s Bike Rental Shops located at all three lifts offer bike rentals, repairs and essential equipment for riders. Deer Valley operates its own Mountain Bike School, offering scheduled clinics and tours for all abilities.
Open daily, beginning Friday, June 17, 2011, (conditions permitting) through Labor Day, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., then an additional weekend, September 10 & 11, 2011 (conditions permitting).
Lift-served mountain biking, hiking and scenic rides are offered from the Silver Lake Express chairlift at Snow Park Lodge, the Sterling Express chairlift located mid-mountain and Ruby Express chairlift in Empire Canyon. Lift tickets, bike rentals and lessons are available from both Mountain Bike Rental Shops, located at Snow Park Lodge or outside Silver Lake Lodge at mid-mountain or from the Empire Yurt adjacent to Empire Canyon Lodge.
