Tiny Ski Lift in Texas is not such a bad idea | Spider Mountain Bike Park

Just for fun, I traveled to Austin Texas to attend the grand opening of Spider Mountain, a 350 foot lift served downhill mountain bike park. I’ve never seen, much less ridden a park that small with a lift, and Spider Mountain is actually kind of revolutionary. First of all, Spider Mountain is the first year round lift park in the United States. Second of all it contains the only chair lift in the state of Texas.
Nearby Spider Mountain is Reveille Peak Ranch, which contains some of the best riding Texas Hill Country has to offer.
Also during this visit I got to see my friend Scott, who I rode BMX with as a kid. We got to ride with Eric from the RSclub Channel “No Front Brakes” as well, during the grand opening.

    I like at 1:26 there is a sign that says "photo location" like any major theme park. The only better sign would be "stand here to get hit by amatuer riders"

    From a European. Traveling 12 hours to ride to a bike park seems crazy. When I go on vacation to the south of France it takes less hours. Probably 6 to 7 hours to the biggest mountains in Austria

    350' vertical is tiny for a ski hill but not bad for a bike park. The lower mountain at Burke here in VT is probably 400' or so, and that's where 90% of the current DH trails are.
