2020 Trip Calendar Released!
After finely tuning dates and timing, we’ve finally reached the point of no return with our 2020 trip calendar. It’s here! Starting earlier than ever and stretching over 8 consecutive months, we’re ready to show you epic rides from St. George to Revelstoke and everywhere in-between.
We know the calendar and number of destinations can be a bit overwhelming, which is why we’ve put together a brief summary for each of our eight available trips. So take a look below, request a few days of vacation, and we’ll see you on the trails in 2020!
Since adding Brevard late last year, one of our favorite trips each spring is to head east and ride the amazing trail networks of Pisgah National Forest and Dupont State Park for four days, while the west is deciding if it’s time for spring or not. Brevard has it all from super-tech trails like Bennett Gap and Middle Black, to trails to get your flow-on like Ridgeline in Dupont.
For this trip, we recommend you have above average technical skills, since Pisgah demands your best everytime we hop on the saddle. We’re already counting down the days for this one!
It’s not a Chasing Epic trip schedule without Moab, and 2020 is no different. We’ll head to the high desert in early May, where you can step up your game by tackling the most technical trails Utah has to offer. For four days, we’ll hit the slickrock and ledgy terrain of Moab hard, with trails like Captain Ahab, the Whole Enchilada (likely from Hazzard down), and plenty more. Moab is an adult playground with all it has to offer, and we can’t wait to show you the goods!
Finally, spring is here and the mountains are starting to thaw! Sun Valley is our first foray into the high country each year, and our 2019 trip saw absolutely amazing weather and perfect trails: we expect no different in 2020! For four days we’ll put together big rides, huge descents, and some of the most amazing singletrack you’ll hit all year. Make sure you’re in shape for this one, as the riding might not be that technical, but it certainly is physically demanding!
Yep, you read that right: an enduro-style trip from Chasing Epic. For 5 days (four full days of riding), this trip is all about the rowdy descents. We’ll utilize shuttles for a majority of our rides, and they’re going to be big! The Monarch Crest is one of the most famous trail systems in the world, and we’re going to explore every descent off the top and then some.
Each day we’ll put together huge rides that will blow your mind: we recommend advanced level riders for this one. If you’re wondering if you’re up for the challenge, just shoot us an email and we can help you out.
Epic alert! New for 2020, we’ve decided to expand north of the border: we’re now offering Revelstoke, British Columbia as a new Chasing Epic destination. We’ll be up front about this one- advanced and expert level riders only. This trip will set new standards when it comes to steep and rowdy terrain, and we want you to be up to the challenge. Because of that, we ask that you email us prior to booking- we’d like to make sure you have the skills to enjoy the rides in Revelstoke. Yes, we’re totally serious.
This trip is longer than our standard trip, and includes many more shuttles and a heli drop… needless to say, it’s going to be epic.
Fall in Crested Butte is possibly our favorite time of year: the leaves are changing, the weather is perfect (albeit a bit chilly), and the trails are in amazing condition. For four days, we put together some of our favorite rides like Teocalli-Strand, 403-401, and the world-famous Doctor Park combo. We’re regularly climbing 3,000 feet in a day but with our shuttles, we’re getting over 5,000 feet of descent. You can’t ask for much more.
Because this trip is at such high elevation, we ask that you’re up for the challenge: make sure you put in major miles in training for your trip, as we know that you’ll enjoy it much more if you’re in shape to ride four big days.
