Mountain Creek Bike Park COVID-19 Precautions and Guidelines

 

Your health and safety along with that of our team members remains our top priority, and as much as we’re all looking for a little return to normalcy in our lives, we’re not quite there yet in our fight against this virus.  With that said, we do feel confident that if we all work together and follow strict personal hygiene and social distancing practices, there is no reason why we can’t get out and enjoy the trails together safely and responsibly.  Please make note of our new Mountain Biking policies that we will be asking all guests to adhere to when you visit us this season.

Due to COVID-19 precautions, we will not be offering any onsite sales.
