Bike Park Update April 22, 2017

Another season in the Silver Star Bike Park is just around the corner.   We have big plans for this year.  By now everyone has heard about the Epic Beowulf trail opening July 29th.  This is exciting news for all the peddlers in the crowd.  The 35km loop should not disappoint!  This also means the trail crew can focus their energy back into the gravity side of the bike park. 

We will be the first to admit the DH trails have not seen as much love as our Park is known for over the past few years while building out the XC network around the resort.   Yes, we stayed on top of the maintenance, started the complete rebuild on Rock Star last year, built the new race track Chainsaw Mullet and pushed in the lower Walk the Line over this time. But let’s be honest… we may have pushed a little hard to get those trails open (in the name of progression).  This year the crew is looking forward to going back and making all the necessary tweaks needed to have those trail flow to the standard we are known for. There are jumps that need the lips lengthened, landing need building up, corners blown out and widened, lines straightened to create speed and many of the blue trails are getting a re-working as well. 

Silver Star Bike Park will have over 125km of trail once Beowulf comes on line, 60+ of that on the DH side alone.  It is time to polish the silver wear and invite the family over for the feast, we are going to make this Park shine this year and with almost a full returning trail crew, we are excited about this!  Our list is huge and if we get through it all, we have a couple new projects up our sleeves as well, so stay tuned as we keep you updated on what we are changing and maybe even something new later in the season.   In the meantime get your legs ready because the lifts will be turning in less than two months.

Later,
Cam
