Well i think this marks the first year in about 10-15 years i havent had a real day riding in the park. Took 4 laps this year on green and blue trails with some friends who wanted to try it on a bachelor party but that was it this year.
Think ticket prices played a big part. Between the lift pass, gas and food, it just makes it to exspensive to head up from the valley now a days. Also theres so many good trail around now a days and i recently switched from a dh bike only to a only a trail bike so it meant much more time exploring new trails. Also in years past, it seems like its 30 minute waits for the chair on nice weekends.
Maybe next year ill get back up. Need to try out creekside and new dirt merchant sometime.
