Drones give us a new perspective on some new and classic Wasatch mountain bike rides.
Bird's Eye View

As you're well aware, mountain biking is blowing up in Utah. Now, with aerial footage becoming the norm, the sport is sexier than ever.

Starting with what is certainly shaping up to be a true Utah classic, Steven Lloyd captures every angle of the Big Mountain Trail at Snowbird. From the dirt, to the air above, Lloyd has you covered. 


Now for the Bamm Bamm Trail. Located at Trail Side bike park in Park City, if you've got the skill set to ride this stuff then get out there and get after it. If you're like me and you're still feeling a little hesitant, well we still have a couple of months before the snow starts falling, so now is the time to fine tune your skills.  Every fall I close out my mountain biking season usually sometime in late October or early November out at Trail Side Park. The trails are usually snow-free well into the fall and it's a great time to assess how your technical biking skills have improved over the course of the summer.

Finally, the Wasatch Crest Trail. An absoulte classic, epic ride that spans the length of the Park City Ridgeline from the top of Park City Mountain Resort all the way down past the Canyons Resort. It's a must for all levels of intermediate and advanced riders.
