How many conversations have you had with your buddies where the topic of the 'most' has come up? Most vertical, most days, most rad? As riders we are constantly in pursuit of more trails and more laps, how do we satisfy this insatiable drive? Well, one way is built right into your Bike Park pass. Sign up for WB+ and you have access to all of your Bike Park stats from this season AND last at your fingertips.
All Bike Park passes come with RFID technology, which is a small chip in your pass that records your scans in the Bike Park and sends information to the WB+ app on your phone and desktop. RFID scanners are located at the bottom of each lift in the Bike Park, recording each lap as you scan through. Your ticket to a sleepless summer just gave you another reason to stay awake at night.
