This year the park is “powered by Giant”. New kids passes, camps and biggest downhill race in the country.
We are starting our stroll through what’s new in Slovenian bike parks for 2016 in Bike park Kranjska Gora. The park, now officially called Bike park Kranjska Gora Powered by Giant, is also the first to announce exact operation dates.
The opening is traditionally on Friday before the May 1st holidays. This year this is on April 22nd.
From then on they complicate their schedule a little bit but it’s all logical:
From April 22nd to May 8th every day from 9 am to 5 pm
From May 9th to 31st Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 9 am to 5 pm
From June 1st to September 11th every day from 9 am to 5 pm
In between, from July 15th to August 21st Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 9 am to 6 pm
From September 12th to October 31st Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 9 am to 5 pm
Daily pass went up for 2 euro from last year. Same for passes from 2 to 7 days.
In 2016 they are introducing kids pass.
Single ride pass – 7 €
Morning pass – 20 €
Afternoon pass – 20 €
Daily pass – 24 €
Kids daily pass – 15 €
2-day pass – 37 €
3-day pass – 53 €

5-day pass – 80 €
6-day pass – 90 €

As you might have guessed from the park7s name they will be offering Giant bikes for rent, 2016 Glorys and Reigns. The first one for 55 and the other one for 40 euro per day. They also have safety gear.
Some of this will be seen at the opening and some during the season.
They will be trying to bring the family flow trail Family Business even closer to the masses. They will also be adding some features for more demanding riders but these will be safe for other users.
They will improve and expand the Luft Waffe(l) jump trail, one more line with lots of airtime coming up.
The Morning Wood northshore style trail is growing up and getting new features, one of them a large wallride.
There will be a new kids park at the base in place of the pumptrack.
