Other Details

Pajarito Cafe

With Pajarito sponsoring us, please come support their cafe form 11am-2pm. They will have both online or in-person ordering.

Current offerings are: burgers, corn dogs, hot dogs, fries, chicken fingers, and chicken sandwiches

For the safety of our riders, Pajarito’s lifts will not be operating during our event. We will be riding on designated trails, please ride safely!


Since we’re still in the monsoon season, we’ll be keeping an eye on weather throughout the weekend. We are having our biggest event on Saturday morning since it’s the least likely time to be affected by weather. Thunderstorms are likely at some point throughout the weekend, if lightning is detected within 10 miles we will pause the event, and resume 30 minutes after the last lightning is detected.

Other rules

As with all NICA events, all participants must be registered NICA student athletes/coaches and will follow NICA league and team rules.

Helmets ON! Always, if you’re on your bike, your helmet is on.

No individual campfires, we will have a group campfire at the Lodge.

To maintain the safety of all riders, we will have marked which trails are NICA appropriate, all other trails are off-limits during our event and with any NICA team rides
