What is down-country?

“What it is, however, is an emerging category of mountain bike that's a strange, hard to define fusion of cross-country, trail, and possibly even the all-mountain segments.” – Mike Levy,

Have you heard of down-country?

Down-country riding and the bikes that facilitate it are trending because they’re awesome. It’s cross-country riding without all the effort and double the fun.

With our Down-country Day Pass, you’ll get two lift rides that eliminate nearly 2,000ft of climbing.

We give you a ride to the top of the bike park and you ride our expertly maintained cross-country trails both up and down as you make your way back to the base of Granby Ranch. On the way, you’ll get a workout, find amazing vistas to enjoy and get a taste of our Granby Ranch Bike Park experience.

After your first lap you can head straight back to the top for a lap in the Bike Park, another cross-country excursion, or have lunch, before heading back up. After two laps and a couple hours of riding you’ll find you had a great day of exercise and excitement.

$20 Down-country Day Pass—two lift rides and all the cross-country riding you want. Purchase this pass in the Granby Ranch Bike Park Bike and Demo Shop.

Our $10 daily lunch deal—keeps the good times rolling and budget intact.

$3 happy hour beers—for a reward after the ride.

*Anyone 17 years and under must have their legal guardian sign a waiver before riding.  Please download the waiver and sign if you do not intend being present during purchase of ticket or season pass.
