New England is famous for its Fall foliage tours, but Northern Utah is already bursting with color as the tree leaves are changing colors with abandon. Montage Deer Valley guests have an extraordinary opportunity to get up close and personal with a bicycle tour through Park City (America’s Gold-level ride destination) thanks to a partnership between Montage Deer Valley and BMC of Switzerland, which has designated Montage as the bike company’s exclusive North American bike test center.
The resort, located in Park City’s scenic, Empire Pass, is ideally situated for guests seeking to experience a wide range of BMC bike products and road and mountain bike trails. The resort’s outfitter, Compass Sports, has been designed to provide a personalized bike demo experience, utilizing a phalanx of bike valets who individually fit the bicycles to guests and provide routing and trail recommendations, including the extensive use of Deer Valley’s scenic chairlifts.
With 400 miles of trails, Park City is America’s only Gold Level Ride Center, as awarded by the IMBA (International Mountain Bicycling Association). The combination of road and mountain bike trails against the jaw-dropping beauty of Utah’s Wasatch Front as a backdrop and the world-class amenities of Park City (home of America’s most recent Olympic Games – Winter, 2002), make for an unparalleled experience for cycling aficionados.
Guests also may book a guided bike tour with Compass Sports staff. The three hour tour is priced at $120 per person and includes bike, guide, helmet, water, and energy bars. For the ultimate guided adventure, guests may book the ‘Bike with a Pro’ experience, featuring a current professional coach (ex-pro racer) who leads/paces guests them through the ride (including stops for beverages and/or snacks), offers instruction and tips to improve cycling efficiency. This three-hour experience is priced at $375 (including bike rental).
Compass Sports also makes it possible to purchase and have BMC bikes shipped from the resort to the home addresses of guests anywhere in the world. For more information and reservations, call (888) 604-1301 or visit: www.montagedeervalley.com
