Hey nickel, I’m guessing now is the time to give up all hopes on Crabs making its 2020 debut?

That seems likely tbh. No one has straight up said to me that crabs isn't opening but it seems silly to put the man hours into it that it needs at this point only to put it all to bed in just under a month. We've got lots to do anyways.

Re: WBP 20

Kevin is correct. It's the operating table that changed. Landing and take off also got a rebuild to match. Rest of trail is unchanged.

It's about fire suppression in case of smokers throwing buts.

As for least ridden, cirque du soil,  renegade, the dirt merch end of after Atlantis, lower Joyride, the section of freight train below Crossroads, all strong candidates for this honor.

I would have said Lower Joyride.  But it's closed.

Next guess, Sidetrack.

Lower Joyride is actually open. Access after first switch back of lower CIU. The bridge over ciu are condemned so access has been changed until we get the time and moolah to change those out.

Re: WBP 20

on pause for this year but if all goes according to financial plans we should be back on track next year. It has certainly not been shelved, just delayed.

nickel, I see a few new trails in Creekside -- will those be opening this year or are they planned for next?

Time will tell. We're trying to get some of it completed for this year but the buzzer might sound on creek gondi first.

Re: WBP 20

It's been so satisfying having a season where we mostly only do maintenance. I love it.

Anyone care to comment on what is happening to family cross? It looks like they are taking out the rollers and jumps that you can triple and double.

Just maintenance and a few tweaks to some of the rollers. Nothing drastic.

Not complaining, but last time I was thru Goat's I asked myself "Is this even worth it?" It's a given that it's gonna be rough, hence the rating, but I remember thinking of the punishment my bike was taking. I guess it's a fine line between needed maintenance taking place & making it too smooth. The bike park crew usually does a good job of finding the right mix.

Your confidence in us is appreciated, both because you think we could make goat's smooth, and because you think we find a good balance. Hard to imagine goat's not being goat's. 

Dm pro line was supposed to open today but a couple merge signs mean it'll likely be tomorrow morning.

Re: WBP 20

D1 opens soon, then maybe DM once safety feels good about how things are going. Crabapple not on the table right now unfortunately. Personally I'd like lowest Canadian open to be next as it's my favorite egress trail.

Re: WBP 20

That's some bull about that guy. Feel for his kid that he lost. 

Re: the jump under the chair on a-line. It changed a lot last year near end of July or something. It got much longer and taller. Went from being a jump you overshot to a jump you work for. Harder to hurt yourself on unless you are messing up so badly you ride off the side of it.
