It's usually closed all winter. I wonder if that will change?

Doubt it.

The main reason for winter closure is the amount of water and snow up there which destroys trail-work. Its Metro who closes it annually, and they're paying for the new work.

Has anyone seen the RFP for the trail work? I'm interested in what MetroVan has included in the scope of work...That will really determine what DreamWizards can build. 

I've seen a couple of the DreamWizards Instagram posts...but don't have an instagram account, so can't watch many of them.

Sweet! Thanks for the update, I've been waiting for that. Too bad it's happening during one of the wettest springs I can remember.

Yeah poor luck for them weather wise. Not sure why they opened it honestly, maybe contractually obligated. 

I checked it out yesterday trying to ride as gently as I could. There's lots of armor (they've done a nice job on new stuff and repairing the old stuff) but lots was really soft and getting pounded.

not sure why NSMBA was promoting this on the socials with all the rain...  and having an enduro race in the rain?  Not a good message and going to create more work.

No gerbil cage 2.0, but I wasn't expecting one either.

It's pretty muddy up there. I'm going to give it a few weeks before heading back.

No doubt it would be! They should have delayed the opening to preserve the  soil work. I'm shocked how many people don't give 2 shits about riding in monsoon conditions these days.

I'm actually not surprised....  parking lots were full on Sunday with pouring rain.  Bikers suck.
