- BIKE PARK SAFETY
Panorama Mountain Village strongly suggests that full face helmets, full length gloves, biking armor and a full suspension bike be used in the Bike Park.

More challenging terrain and features should not be attempted until the rider has the appropriate skills, experience and equipment to effectively negotiate such trail sections. Carrying a mobile phone and having a local emergency contact is recommended.
Take a moment to familiarize yourself with the Mountain Bike Responsibility Code and keep safety your number one priority.
