Best Lift Driven Bike Trail in Lake Tahoe

Mountain Biking Sierras

What I love about the Northstar Community of Lake Tahoe is the outdoor activities that are available all year long. We tend to think of ski resorts and mountains as just a place to ski. However, Northstar California has a world class, lift-served mountain bike park for use all summer!

Free Ride Unlimited Pass

When you buy your Free-Ride Unlimited Pass, you get access to Vail, Breckenridge, Keystone, Crested Butte, Northstar, Kirkwood, Stevens Pass, Okemo and Mount Sunapee. If you love mountain biking - this is your ticket to heaven.

The shop at Northstar California offers everything you need for summer mountain and road biking adventures. They offer everything for beginner to advanced cross country bikers with downhill mountain biking trails, lift access, bike rentals and bike shop services.

After winter, the trail is managed by work crews digging and shaping the trails to perfection. Load your bike onto their special bike lifts, and away you go.

About the Trail

You can enjoy the summer single track at Tahoe’s largest lift-served mountain bike park.  Perhaps start with the easy terrain and then progress your way to technical downhill descents. No matter your skill level, beginner to expert, they have the equipment and coaches to get you on the mountain.

The resort offers complete protective gear and bike equipment rentals as well as top of the line lessons for exploring signature trails like Livewire and Boondocks. For the most in-depth one-on-one attention, try a full day lesson with the Specialized Academy, where you'll work with an expert bike coach and demo this year's latest bike gear.
