Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort has teamed up with Squatters Pubs and Beers to create the Full Suspension Mountain Bike Series, featuring an adrenaline-charged course through Snowbird's diverse terrain.

"This series of four races is a fun way to showcase Snowbird's new single track mountain bike trails," said Dave Fields, Snowbird's vice president of resort operations.

Each lap of the course is a 5-mile loop with 80 percent single-track and approximately 600 feet of climbing. The clockwise loop begins under the Tram cable at the base of the resort and heads to Black Jack Gully, then winds across the mountain, through the forest, all the way to Baby Thunder, and returns to Snowbird Center on Dean's Trail.

There are seven categories, based on rider ability level:
Pro Men - 3 laps
Expert Men - 3 laps
Pro/Expert Women - 3 laps
Sport Men - 2 laps
Sport Women - 2 laps
Beginner Men - 1 lap
Beginner Women - 1 lap

Each registrant will receive a Full Suspension Pale Ale or a Squatters Brewhouse Root Beer. Prizes include Aerial Tram tickets, Snowbird Summer Activity Passes and Wasatch Beer prizes.

Renowned mountain bike trail builder Troy Duffin designed and built Snowbird's new single track trails over the past two years. A map of Snowbird hiking and biking trails can be found at http://www.snowbird.com/imagelib/trailmaps/summer_trails-2.pdf.
