Okay, so this thread is a few days early, but I shuttled some riders today and got the unpaid, propaganda free feedback. They rode Schleyer, Upper Joyride, A-line and a few other lines and said the conditions were as good as it gets- no ice, no snow, no deep muck. People have been speculating on the conditions based on the old photos of the machines clearing snow and they could not be more wrong.

This weekend will be good and with a few more trails getting cleared there will be more than 14 offerings and with decent weather it will make for a good season opener.

I hope this gives more of you the goods you need to make the call and get up here for day.

I'll see for myself in a few hours, but any idea on the timeline for Dirt Merchant?

This trip to Kelowna was definately an undertaking - Liam and I had been planning this project for 24 hours. We worked really hard to pull out all the stops in this video. We had slo-mo goggle shots; time lapses; pedal flips; outrageous product shots; unloading and loading the bike; walking through the field with your hand in wheat. At the end of the day this trip was all about just getting out and riding with all my friends.

So, just reading between the lines of this post, does this mean Schleyer and Joyride will be good to go this weekend?

We are sitting in the village right now…the stoke level of the riders is freaking amazing.

Everyone is buzzing about Schleyer/Joyride for sure!

thanks,
steve
