The Big Mountain Enduro Series is an authentic multi-stage, multi-day annual Enduro series throughout the most picturesque vacation destinations in Colorado, Utah and New Mexico. This much anticipated competition offers some of the biggest and most challenging terrain in and around these mountainous landscapes. With many of the top-ranked trails in the country, races will follow a mix of the European formats; tying in epic backcountry Enduros on big terrain, as well as lift-accessed stages blended in along the way. Courses will feature predominantly downhill timed “special” stages linked together by non-timed liaison climbing stages. This rapidly growing discipline combines the physical endurance of cross-country riding with the technical difficulty and excitement of downhill racing.
The combination of the Bike Snowmass lift accessed terrain and the surrounding Town of Snowmass Village trails offer some of the most diverse mountain biking in the country. Bike Snowmass is the only lift served biking in the U.S. that can take riders on a 4,000-foot single track decent, beginning above tree line and ending in the high mountain desert. Snowmass has everything from Gravity Logic jump trails, World Cup level downhill courses, to pristine, buff singletrack. Riders should expect to see five to six stages with both lift served and backcountry access to the starts. Snowmass has supported mountain biking and gravity riding for over 15 years going back to the NORBA Nationals and World Cup C3 level downhill racing. Throughout all the years, Snowmass has remained progressive every step of the way and is now excited to show off the bike park and trails to the new and exciting world of Big Mountain Enduro, which will be the first stop of the BME series and second stop of the North American Enduro Tour (NAET).
