Keystone opens for the season

Keystone's lift-served downhill mountain bike season kicks off this Friday June 15 with the debut of "Money," a new downhill mountain bike trail featuring berms and 22 tabletop jumps. Five additional downhill trails are set to open during Keystone's summer mountain biking season.

I'm not sure if they call the trail "Money" because the mountain is so busy spending it or making it. A summer bike season passes is $229 for weekday access (Monday - Friday) and $269 for unlimited access. Ouch.

A daily bike haul ticket is $30 for all-day access and $18 for one ride/run. Ouch.

The other alternative is to pedal your ass up the mountain. Ouch. Ouch. Ouch.

Yeah, ouch. But I think I paid about $20 for a day lift ticket to ride Bear Mountain (before it became Bear Mountain) in SoCal nearly 20 years ago.

The base area makes a nice lunch stop when riding the Summit County paths and trails. It's free and you get to see the carnage coming off the mountain.
