Park Report
July 15, 2016

Some people like to wake up to a late breakfast when they have a day off, for some, the day started hours ago.

PARK REPORT

Who doesn’t like statistics? Ok aside from anyone taking Statistics 101 at school for the first time. Stats can tell cool stories, wow people at meetings and generally make a person sound knowledgeable on any subject. Did you know in America there are more people who ride bikes than ski, golf and play tennis combined? See, that is the type of useful knowledge that can be gleaned from statistics! Did you know that if fifty thousand people rode down A-Line and hit every jump they would have done over two and half million jumps and if each jump took one and a half seconds that would equate to a human in the air for over sixty five thousand hours?

Well statistically speaking we have not been 100% open yet as Top of the World has been up in the clouds under a layer of snow left from the one thousand one hundred and seventy seven cm we received this winter. However, with one thousand four hundred and forty man hours of digging we are ready to open.

The upper-most section is still closed until we see some average temperatures climb, so expect to ride a section or two of HWY 86. There are also some snow patches so expect some adventure riding. The conditions and remote nature of the trail make it an “expert” experience. If you are a WB+ App hound and chasing vertical is your game, then this opening should put a smile on your face as you now have access to five thousand feet of vertical all the way to the Creekside!
