  1. I don’t know if I am just always kept in the dark about these things or if I have found a hidden jewel in Arizona biking. Sunrise Ski Park is offering all day lift tickets for mountain bikes for $15.00 per person. They are open on Saturday and Sunday from 10:00am to 4:00pm. For someone who is not a huge fan of all day uphills but loves to hit hard downhills this place is amazing ! There were hardly any people there, which may change after this listing, so there was a lot of space to make your own pace and really get some good technical runs. The only drawback is the drive but for people in the east valley it’s just over two hours to Show Low. Maybe everyone has already ridden this place ages ago but just forgot to tell me !!!

  2. This place was unfortunatlley a dissapointment. the trails are marked wrong for technical levels. It was and is totally unmaintained trails for over 3-4 years. Talked to someone in charge to find out why. Its great….no lift lines….nice views….nice people…but the trails are dangerous. We “our family of four”… are avid riders…Colorado…Snowmass….P-rim Utah….Slick Rock….Utah…..Aspen Co….Ute trail Glenwood Springs Co….Sonora Cali….Lake Tahoe rim….Zion… There are no flowing trails at Sunrise, they are met with slick rocks and roots on steep decents with no options of using brakes efficiantly. Its a nail biter even on green when you enter the tree lines. It seems you cant ever get a rythem going. the easiest wat down in a switch back fire access road that is hard to find half way down. Only upper level riders here like me but be prepared to go down and hard. 30 dollars for lift ticket was to much for sure for the conditions. Maybe it was good when built years ago, but now…..they are gone. Be prepared to be frustrated. The sking here in the winter is beautiful and groomed everywhere through 1:00 believe it or not…..a must see.
