Notes From Trail Crew

The warm weather has continued, drying up most of the existing wet patches, and removing the need for plywood. While we're starting to see a bit of dust on the trails in the sun, you can still find great tacky dirt in the trees. Please note that the Ski Cross Course construction is temporarily affecting lower Arm Pump and lower Super Nugget. The crew is working to have these runs open with alternative outruns soon.

Notes From Trail Crew

We were stoked to see everyone out, enjoying the trails over Opening Weekend. Unfortunately, Mother Nature has continued to test Trail Crew with persistent rain and snow across the Bike Park. The wet conditions forced us to divert efforts from opening additional trails to repairing the water and rider damage on the trails currently open. With sunny skies and warm weather in the forecast, we look forward to making progress with the lingering snowpack at the top of Sunburst and the new construction in the Progression Park.

Notes From Trail Crew

This season has seen slower spring melt and minimal stretches of warm weather so far, resulting in prolonged wet conditions throughout the Bike Park. Despite the remaining snowpack at higher elevations, the crew has been working hard and we will have a good selection of trails available for Opening Day. Our focus has been on opening trails in good shape and aiming for quality over quantity, to provide the best experience for riders. We are monitoring trail conditions closely every day and will open additional trails as soon as possible. We ask guests to respect trail closures and please be mindful that there will be plywood sheets used in some areas to cover wet sections. We're stoked to bring you new trails and wood features in the Progression Park. We look forward to opening these additions over the next few weekends. Stay tuned on our social media for a complete list of what's opening prior to Opening Day.
