Mountain Bike Season Pass offers variety spanning three states; Vail, Keystone, Northstar California, Kirkwood, and Canyons offer Free-Ride Unlimited Pass
Five world-class resorts today announced the Free-Ride Unlimited Pass, which includes unlimited summer mountain bike access to Vail Mountain and Keystone Resort in Colorado, Lake Tahoe’s Northstar California and Kirkwood Mountain Resort in California, and Utah’s Canyons Resort in Park City. 

New for the 2014 summer, the Free-Ride Unlimited mountain bike season pass provides access to a combined total of more than 155 trails descending more than 11,000 vertical feet serviced by ten chair lifts.  For a limited time through May, riders can purchase the Free-Ride Unlimited Pass for $329. 

“The Free-Ride Unlimited Pass offers tremendous diversity, value, and flexibility for bike enthusiasts of any ability level,” said Andrew Buckley, director of resort and skier services at Northstar California. “The option to tour five bike park offerings in three states with unique riding conditions is a first in our industry. Whether riders prefer jump-and-flow trails or true core downhill, the experience the pass offers is unparalleled.” 

Free-Ride Unlimited pass holders have access to the best of mountain biking—from the legendary trail perfection of Vail and the 100-plus miles of singletrack of Keystone in Colorado; top-ranked trail ingenuity at Northstar and big-mountain scenery of Kirkwood at Lake Tahoe, California; to Canyons Resort’s access to the first and only IMBA Gold-Level Ride Center in Park City, Utah.  “Riders can discover each mountain’s unique experiences both on and off the trails this summer,” Buckley stated.  World-class mountain biking complements each of the five resorts’ multitude of summer options such as kayaking and boat tours, hiking and zip line adventures, spa and yoga, horseback riding, shopping and dining, golf and tennis, concerts and more.

Free-Ride Unlimited Pass purchasers have unrestricted access to all five mountains throughout summer.  Additionally, pass holders will receive four Bike-with-a-Friend discounted tickets, each valid for a day of riding at the five mountains.  Bike-with-a-Friend tickets are automatically loaded onto each Free-Ride Unlimited pass, and can be used for family and friends.  For additional information and purchasing, visit participating resorts’ locations or websites; or purchase via phone.
