Highland wants to thank all our riders, campers, pros, coaches, sponsors and friends for another killer year! We couldn’t do this without you! Here is to 2014, see you in May!
On opening day, the pros came out to play. Aaron Chase and Mike Montgomery side by side on Hellion this past May.
Just a couple weeks after dialing-in new tricks at Highland’s FMB Spring Training, Brett Rheeder threw down a winning run for the ages at X-Games Munich MTB Slopestyle.
Highland’s Camp programs continued to help many a rider big and small take it to the next level.

A major highlight of this season included the grand re-opening of NE Style. Jamie Goldman tables the big stepdown in the woods in this iconic shot from staff photog Ryan Thibault.
A rider favorite when opened in 2012, Cat’s Paw is now top-to-bottom with brand new upper and middle sections where any level of rider can dial the fun factor up to 11.
Highland’s much loved jump parks got re-energized with construction of the brand new Upper Sherwood zone.
The 3rd Annual OverMountain Enduro Race saw over 200 racers take on Highland’s challenging terrain including the brand new trail “Faux Pine” and its robust rock armoring.
Riders came from far and wide for the infamous Battle of Hellion 6X DH race, a staple of New England’s fall racing season.
With one of the longest riding seasons in North America, Highland’s riders even got treated to a bit of powder during the last couple days.
Goodbyes are tough, so in true Highland style we wrapped up closing weekend with a huge party at S’Ender Bash.
What a ride, see you next year!
