Why not just sack up and ride/walk dales?
Thats how we used to progress at riding, and goshdarned it,we liked it!!
On one hand, these easier trails can be seen as progression trails for beginner/intermediate riders, but on the other, they can just be seen as adding variety to riding options for riders of all ability levels.
I've been riding the shore for about two years now, and really do enjoy the techy shore type trial but just this summer I started riding the Lost Lake trails in Whistler a fair bit and realized that I also really enjoy more smooth flowly xc style trails too for a different experience.
Would be nice to have some more flowly XC options on the shore for the days when you want to ride something aside from tech trails (which the shore already has plenty of). Nice to just throw on the XC lid and no additional gear and just go for a ride.
