Park City Mountain Resort (Shadow Lake)
The Park City area has excellent high-altitude alpine biking. The snow clears about mid-June to early July. There are more trails than you can ride in a summer, varying from intermediate to extreme technical. The best trails are found on the east side of town. Park City resort area trails are free. The ride is easy to navigate from the Spiro trailhead: just head west-southwest, and keep going. It can be a bit more confusing via the Sweeney Switchback trailhead.
