Spider Mountain is one of the most unique experiences in Texas — a ski lift in the middle of the Hill Country! It’s an exciting adventure and we’re happy to offer a half or full day package to your summer camp as a high thrills, high reward activity for your campers!

The mountain features three diverse beginner runs.

A day at Spider Mountain

Spider Mountain experiences are designed to  foster learning, build community, develop team spirit, and have fun.

Our experience runs a half or full day with campers broken into teams. We’ll begin with a morning dedicated to familarizing campers with bikes and equipment, a basis in riding safely, followed by practice in the skill park learning balance and body control. The afternoon is spent riding the mountain and enjoying the freedom of Spider Mountain’s trails, followed by a super fun race down Itsy-Bitsy, our showcase green flow trail. We can adjust the schedule according to camp goals and timeframes.

Spider Mountain + summer camp = endless adventure

Even if you’ve ridden a mountain bike, you probably haven’t ridden a place like Spider Mountain.

It’s a place where campers can connect with one another and challenge their team. Plus, it’s a HUGE thrill. 

We’re a mountain committed to safety, with trails accessible to emergency responders in an emergency, plus a team of safety patrollers onsite with EMT training to respond immediately. 

Spider is a place to build resiliency as campers demonstrate grit, patience, and consistency to reach new goals.
