Don't get us wrong, seven hours of lift-accessed riding a day is pretty sweet. Hell, we've even been open for 10 hours a day, three times a week, already this season. But daily Extended Play is a different deal: from June 11 - September 5, the Bike Park is open for 10 hours EVERY DAY. That's 10am - 8pm all summer long. It means that this weekend alone, the Bike Park is open for 20 hours. That's right, 20 hours!
Blow the horn it's go time!
20 hours this weekend means more berm slapping and lip squashing per day than you know what to do with. From sun up till sun down you can be smashing laps with your buddies - lapping and lapping and lapping until it's burger time. Stop for a bit. Maybe even a lake dip? And then get back at'r. If you’ve had enough, rest up for tomorrow. Once youre done, you only have 14 hours until the Bike Park is open again. So what are you waiting for? It's the weekend and its time to ride.

Big Pete going big.
Finn sure isn't big like Pete but it doesn't look like that matters.
10 hours of straight smiles for this kid.
Sometimes bets are lost and you just have to own it.
Thanks for catching up between EWS stops, Sarah.
Log rides for long rides.

Last tickets to stay awake for a lucky few at the end of the day.
Time to eat. Rest. And repeat.
