When the aspen leaves begin to change and the breeze cools down, it signals not just the beginning of fall, but the end of mountain bike season.

Both Winter Park Resort’s Trestle Bike Park and Granby Ranch’s bike park close Sept. 30.

Jennifer Laspesa, sales manager for Granby Ranch, said they had a successful summer and are excited to close out the season with their Oktoberfest celebration on Saturday from noon to 4 p.m.

Granby Ranch hosted monthly bike races this summer that helped bring new riders to the resort’s trails. Laspesa said the resort is looking to grow its mountain bike offerings and may partner with Winter Park Resort next year to offer unique events.

“We’re going to have a meeting on all of the different bike opportunities and how we can grow Grand County with the mountain biking sector,” Laspesa said.

Trestle’s closing doesn’t coincide with any events at Winter Park Resort, but the park does offer bonus weekend hours from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Oct. 5 – 7.

Though Winter Park Resort didn’t host the Freeride Festival this year due to construction, they still hosted the Epic Singletrack Races and the Trestle Gravity Series.
