Opening Day was AWESOME!

Trails were perfect, weather was perfect, Tippie rallying the crowd to go to Schley's yard sale was perfect (well it was typical Tippie anyway.

The only downside were the epic lineups stretching all way to the ally beside the Pan Pacific. (30 minute waiting time)

The trails were so good I was momentarily outraged when I saw a braking bump but I got over it.

It's buffed, it's primo, IT'S ON!

I've never been in a line up that long with such a happy disposition ever.

F@cking amazing time.

that was the largest line up I have ever seen in my 10 years riding this beast, way to go WB, they must have been shocked, the lifty said they were expecting 800 people, and 2000 show up, never seen the corral infront of the longhorn, pretty good 3 runs in 3 hours, trails are like virgins still.....

Not just hype

I told you it was going to be good! I'm not going to lie to you, ever. I vow to be honest with all Bike Park reports because I never want to see them go the way of "packed powder" or "variable visibility". If it is good, I will tell you, if it is muddy, I will tell you, if it is dusty, yep, I will tell you. We were certainly surprised by the banger attendance and I personally was stoked that the vibe was so upbeat - thanks for keeping it so cool.

Big thanks go out to the Trail Crew for getting everything so buffed and ready. The Patrol Crew came in late in the week and banged in all that rebar, built road crossings, wrestled bears (not even kidding on this one!) and had everything ready early enough for a staff ride on Friday. The Airdome got its facelift with the help of some crucial volunteers (thanks Andrew) and we cracked it open 1/2 an hour early for the first session of the summer.

I am proud to have such solid staff working in the Park. These people are professionals at what they do and could probably fetch a bigger pay cheque somewhere else but chose to do this for the love of the ride. Thanks to all the Bike Park staff who made this quality start possible and thanks to all of the riders who came out for the day.

Cheers,
B-ri

I can't stand lines so I hit the valley trails today. Sat at Black's Pub with the better half and puppy and watched the line barely move, then I spent the afternoon (and all day yesterday) riding the super quiet valley trails. If it rains tomorrow maybe I'll hit the park

Variable visiblity means it's pea soup out there.

Glad the vibe was good, I think everyone's happy to ride. I'll be riding the valley mostly this year, with the occasional Air Dome ride I think.

Have fun everyone!

I was amazed wandering down at 8:45am to get my gear and bike to see at least 30 people lined up waiting for the lift to start turning.
