Highland Camps Scholarship Applications Now Open

Applications for Highland Camps scholarships are now open! The Highland Scholarship Program was created last year to assist a handful of passionate, motivated young riders in alleviating the financial challenges that may present themselves when enrolling in summer camp. The program is still small, but we’re constantly working to be able to add more scholarships and open the door for more kids to come to camp. Right now, we are able to offer four partial scholarships to camp in 2020. Take this opportunity to tell us a bit about yourself and your relationship to the sport of mountain biking. What sets you apart from the rest of the applicants? Why do you want to ride with us, and what can we help you achieve?

Foresight is 2020

Another season on bikes has come to a close! We can’t thank you enough for continuing to be a part of the Highland Family. This year saw record growth across the mountain biking industry, and if you stood in our lift line on a weekend this fall you’ll know that we certainly felt it here at Highland. As we head into the winter, we’re looking forward to tackling some mountain improvement projects that will help accommodate the growing population of downhill riders. We know you’re going to ask, and no, a new lift is not in the cards—yet. However, we have gotten our hands on a bunch of new chairs and bike carriers that will be added to the existing lift. We’ll be welding and flipping and reattaching for the next few months so that when you roll in for the 2020 season our uphill capacity will have increased by…

#EnduroEverest at Highland Mountain

#EnduroEverest at Highland Mountain  On Tuesday, September 17th, Highland Trail Builder and Coach Justin Lagassey mounted his bike with one goal in mind. He’d been plotting and preparing for weeks, and the day was finally here. Over the next twenty-four hours, on the strength of maple syrup and grit, he planned to ride the vertical equivalent of climbing Mount Everest from sea level to summit.  Back in January, Justin had read a story on Pinkbike from Henry Quinney about ‘Everesting’ Skyline Bike Park in Queenstown, New Zealand. (Read that story here.) The idea took hold. How fun would it be to take on that same challenge at Highland, with a few Justin-style twists? So fun! Is he crazy? you might be wondering. Sure. We all are. Next question.  The Rules: Climb 29,029 vertical feet in a single ride No changing No sleeping No shuttles No whining No cheating  The original…

Now Taking Deposits on 2019 Rental Bikes

The Highland Bike Shop is now selling off it’s 2019 rental fleet. All bikes are carefully maintained throughout the season by our experienced mechanics, so they’re still running great by the time they move on to their next home. We give every bike a full tune-up prior to sale: brakes are bled, fork is overhauled, and cable and housing are replaced. In many cases we will also install a new saddle, grips, and handlebars. Brake pads are at 50% or better. Tires are used but in good condition. Some protective film has been removed. See current inventory below See Bikes
