New in 2014, this downhill-only mountain bike trail features banked turns, rollers and jumps appealing to experienced mountain bikers. Riders finishing the trail at Roundhouse can either download on the Gondola or take the Christmas Lift back to the top of Bald Mountain to ride down one of the classic perimeter trails. Saddle Up closes daily at 4:00pm.

With the help of IMBA Trail Solutions, Saddle Up underwent extensive remodeling in the fall of 2014 to enhance the overall flow of the trail.

Access Info

Saddle Up starts at the top of Bald Mountain and is accessed via the Christmas Lift #3.
