Hello Grande Prairie & Region. We thank you for your support this past summer. We had a successful summer and were stoked to get the easyloop up and going, along with opening a couple new trails and features. This wouldn’t have been possible without you.
We have started to work on and will continue to work on the trails on the Westside of Nitehawk’s Bike Park and have future plans to work towards reopening Easy Street and Lower Rock & Roll in summer 2024.
Just as in previous years we ask that all riders “Pre-Ride, Re-Ride and then Free-Ride” the trails, to ensure they are free of any obstacles or hazards and to please obey all trail signs and any trail closures. Always ride with a buddy and within your limits. And Please remember that the bike trails at Nitehawk Bike Park do require at least a Full Day or Two to dry following any rain event, so please give them the time required to dry, and to prevent damage to the trails.
Getting Up Hill:
Wednesday & Friday Evenings from 4:30-9:00pm/Dusk & Saturdays from 11:00am-5:00pm our 15 Passenger Shuttle Van with “Huck Wagon” Trailer (designed by Aztec Engineering & fabricated by Sundown Oilfield Services) will be lapping from the bottom of the Hill up to our Main Chalet Parking Lot. Then starting on July 26th, we will have the NEW EasyLoop System installed on our Platter Lift to bring you up the hill. This new addition will allow you to do laps on all upper trails, by returning to the lower parking lot. Access to our shuttle service & EasyLoop Platter Lift will be by purchasing your tickets In-Person at the Chalet.
Pedal Power/After Hours Riding:
Unfortunately, Nitehawk will no longer be able to allow after hours riding. Our New Insurance Underwriters have informed us that all visitors to our facility must only access our trail system during shuttle & lift operating hours. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation in this regard.
Regarding Pedal Power Riding, for our Enduro friends, Nitehhawk is working on getting Easy Street ready for Uphill Riders. Please note that all Uphill Riders still are required to purchase a Pass In-Person from the Chalet. There will not be any afterhours uphill riding allowed.
Riders caught riding without a lift pass and after hours will be banned from the Bike Park for the remainder of the Bike Season.
During our Uphill Assist hours, we will have food and beverage services with simple and tasty offerings out of our Snowmakers Family Lounge. Wings, poutine, burgers and more will be here to fuel you up.
We will invite you out to help put some TLC into the trails. Offering incentives to any of our volunteers who come lend a hand. Please stay tuned to our Facebook page for announcements as we find a balance & schedule that keeps our trails in great shape. Dig Day sign-up sheet: https://forms.gle/5PeT9JFXyMUeX8yd8
Thank you again for your support as we work together to open the Nitehawk Bike Park for the 2023 Season. See you on the trails soon!
