Today's Bellbuilt Tidbit

As video star Dennis has told you, getting this grant will allow us and Holiday Valley to kick start a much larger trail building program at the resort.  Without this grant, this program may never get off the ground.

So, what is the big plan? Take a look at the map below:

The proposed Bell Built trail is highlighted in Red.  Perhaps we may even have enough money (because remember, HV is kicking in some assistance as well) to complete the purple trail.  The purple trail will provide a way to get up to the top of the switchbacks by riding first up the cat track to the Mardi Gras lift, then taking this new single track up higher.

Then there is also those three other fainter red dashed lines.


  1. The first will allow us to start using the singletrack traverse rather than the double track up to the top of Cindy's.  That isn't used any more since it ends in a hellish climb up to the wall chairlift.  We'd instead contour around to the start of the XC road.
  2. The next one would go from the purple trail to the top of Eagle lift.  This would allow another way to climb to the top all on singletrack.
  3. The last is another route along the top.  By building this loop, Dennis has some great ideas on how to set up a new longer race loop.
None of this will happen, however, it things don't get kick started with this grant.
So, are you motivated to go out and get everyone you know to vote????




Our insurance company has "strongly suggested" that we tell you that Mountain Biking can be dangerous. If you're visiting this site it's very likely that you're already aware that if you insist on having a good time by riding your mountain bike, eventually you will almost certainly fall down and collect any number of boo-boos, dings and injuries, serious or otherwise, but we have to tell you anyway.

Mountain Biking is a potentially hazardous activity carrying a significant risk of bodily injury and even death. Mountain biking should only be undertaken if you have a complete awareness of these risks. You can reduce the level of risk by wearing a helmet and by riding within your own skill level.
