New trail opens at Stevens Pass Bike Area

Stevens Pass recently opened up a new trail at its bike park.

The trail is called P.B.R. (Powered By Rudolph) and was named for the late Chris Rudolph. Rudolph was a big advocate for the Stevens Pass Bike Park.

The trail is rated as “most difficult.” More features will be added over time. The Stevens Pass blog says it best “The trail is still young, and it’ll only get better as time goes on; much like a fine wine or a good scotch.”

Test yourself

Update: The weather is expected to be so nasty this weekend, the Turn N’ Berm has been delayed until Oct. 5-6.

If you really want some time on the bike, check out the Turn N’ Berm Festival on Oct. 5-6 at the bike park.

There will be a number of different chances to show off your skills on the trail. Test your speed while dragging a keg behind you or show off your wheelie skills.

For disc golfers, see if you can get an ace in the Ace Race. You’ll get a goodie bag including a specialized disc and a lift ticket for the $25 entry fee.
