Been getting a lot of AZ folks out visiting the resorts around here lately (mike-e, cessligner, swapthang, azdog, jeff, les & friends). Good times riding with you guys, and sorry to those who I didn't get a chance to ride with. Ran into Les from No Brakes out here for Nationals last weekend, and happened to have my helmet cam on for a couple runs. Here's a few short videos from Trestle that day to keep the stoke going. Cheers!

Trestle blew my mind! :band: Thanks for the mountain hospitality bro, despite my botch on that Keystone day. We're gonna try and get up there again, before the season ends. Until then, shred on!

#1 Tip in CO... snowboarders are authorized by the forest service to create "smoke huts" near the ski runs.

That torrential downpour + the wood scared me, looks like we need to go back up there and show that thing who's boss. Got my cast off today, it's time to mash!

Yeah, that corkscrew really isn't that bad if you don't stop and look at it, pretty smooth. In the rain its a nightmare though, even the girlfriend line was sketchy that day, I barely even made it to the split. Colin wasn't so lucky from what I heard, he slid off before the split. You guys missed out on the drop zone stuff that day too, and some of the more gnar double blacks. Definitely got to get some retribution on that mountain.

It's pretty nice Terry, kinda spoiled with all the resort riding close. If you and Adam ever get out here you're welcome to crash on the couches too, if you don't mind my dog licking your feet, haha. Its only about 4-5 hrs past Angel Fire.

First pic is aftermath from first attempt.
Second pic is aftermath (taken today after some healing) from second attempt, where the Boot'r wound up upside down almost under the bridge, and with me laying down on top of the bent over sapling (first from R of the Aspen), which is what my leg ground down the side of, I think.

BTW who can go back before the season ends?
Do you have a private plane? I might be able to swing something for the labor day weekend.

Made a few phone calls yesterday. After labor day weekend Keystone and Trestle are open weekends only.

The last weekend for Keystone is Sept 18th & 19th.

The last weekend for Trestle is Sept 25th & 26th.

If I'm feelin up to it I'll be going up for one of these weekends ... or both. :D I've got a lost summer to make up for!

What about those skinny drops? Did you hit any of those? Only Mikey had enough coordination to see it through.... I need to get better at skinnies.

This is a bummer, I am looking for a new residence and that is probably the main barrier to entry for me going back to any bike park than maybe Telluride... I guess I could go homeless for a little bit...

It would be a quick drive if we all took turns and stayed in a cheap lodge or silverthorne. No skinny for me. Found them once but couldn't find them again to take a stab.

like a 3 day weekend trip? Well, if we nail it down I will commit to help with gas and driving and then it would end up being pretty cheap. We could hit up the hostel that is close to WP and get a discount if more than 3 people are staying. It is like a 15 min drive to the lift from the hostel...

Eff it all... I should have never gone in the first place. Then I wouldn't have any idea of what I was going to miss out on...
