LIFTOPIA LAUNCHES MOUNTAIN BIKING TICKETS AND PACKAGES AT RESORTS ACROSS NORTH AMERICA
Leading online and mobile marketplace for mountain activities extends into warm-weather activities
SAN FRANCISCO, May 25, 2016 — As mountain resorts look to extend activities into the warm summer months, Liftopia.com, the largest online and mobile marketplace for lift tickets and other mountain activities, today will begin offering lift tickets and packages for mountain biking at resorts across North America for the first time ever. Many of the top lift-served bike resorts are working with Liftopia for this new initiative, including Mountain Creek (NJ), Mammoth Mountain (CA), Schweitzer Mountain (ID), Grand Targhee (WY), Plattekill Mountain (NY), Greek Peak (NY), Oak Mountain (NY), Sunday River (ME), Waterville Valley (NH), Crystal Mountain (MI), Greek Peak (NY), Oak Mountain (NY) and Beech Mountain Resort (NC).
For more than a decade, Liftopia has built the largest audience of skiers and snowboarders on the web with the Liftopia.com ski lift ticket marketplace. With this latest offering, the company is using this expertise to partner with resorts to extend mountain activities throughout the year. By offering tickets and packages online and via mobile devices, the new Liftopia program will help new entrants to the sport learn how lift-served mountain biking works, where they can go, what they need to bring with them, and how they can prepare.
“Many resorts are looking to ways they can maximize the great summer weather and augment their winter activities with new experiences for customers. Lift-served mountain biking is a growing sport and a natural fit for resorts during warm-weather months,” said Evan Reece, CEO of Liftopia. “We are excited to give people the opportunity to get to the mountains in the summer and experience riding a bike downhill. If you can ride a bicycle you can ride beginner trails at these areas – for most people it is much easier to learn how to ride a mountain bike at a ski area it is than it is to learn to ski!”
Lift-served mountain biking is already a rapidly growing segment of business for resorts across North America and Europe. To drive awareness to this growing sport, Liftopia will be partnering with Teton Gravity Research, TheFeed.com and Specialized Bicycle Components to offer sweepstakes and giveaways throughout the season, including a Specialized Enduro trail bike (MSRP $3,400) and $500 in gift credit from Liftopia, $250 in gift credit from TheFeed.com and a gift package fromTeton Gravity Research.
