Northwest Cup 2019 – Mt Hood Ski Bowl
May 24 at 8:00 am - May 26 at 6:00 pm
The NW Cup (or Northwest Cup) is one of our favorite mountain bike racing series in the US. In it’s 9th year the Mt Hood Skibowl 2018 edition is the 3rd stop of the downhill race series. The Skibowl bike park provides 1500 vertical feet of lift-served biking serving miles of terrain. In fact, it was one of the first areas in the nation to provide lift assisted mountain biking over 29 years ago. A perfect place for such a prestigious event.
