Yep, been planning that for a long time. We feel the timing is right and the demographic is there. Nothing like riding in the fall!
Sounds great Brad! Any word on what DH course the 40+ guys are running for the May race? I have not even ridden my DH bike yet this year, but I want to do this race. I may even do it on my new Norco Range.

Black Bear (Pro Track) with the longer upper section. We are removing a couple lippy rocks throughout the course that don't really make sense on a race track. Check out the Instagram page for pictures of the bike trays. Lift maintenance are installing them as we speak. I will post some pictures later as well.

Just got home from riding Beech Mtn. Had a great time, trails and terrain are great and got to meet Brad. It was obvious that there were tremendous improvements since my last visit in '17.

Thanks for the feedback and for supporting the park! I was actually getting ready to post a lot of videos from our existing trails and a progress report on our new trail. Stay tuned!

Nice riding Brad, looking forward to visiting this year, hopefully it's less eventful than last year.

Is Blue Ridge Rocks still open?
No I deleted a lot of Upper Blue Ridge Rocks because nobody liked it and the rock piles the previous trail builder built were weird. As you can see from the videos there are three trails up top: Green Mamba, Indigo, and Black Bear. Indigo splits into Copperhead and Burmese Python. Copperhead shares a lot of the old Blue Ridge Rocks contour especially after the road. One of the goals was to get everything to flow better from the top and I think that we achieved that. Hope you get to come up this summer.

Nice! I can't say I'll miss it and most folks I talked to felt it was similarly awkward, especially for a blue. The new stuff looks great and we'll definitely be coming a few times this year.

So I just want to confirm...Beech is open on July 1st and 2nd which is a Monday and Tuesday. I don't want to drive up for it to be closed. Couldn't find this information on the website anywhere.

We actually added a day. We will be open continuously from Wed June 26th through July 7th. Our marketing team does a good job of making sure our hours are posted on the website: Blue Text White Colorfulness Line

We had a great time this weekend, having the lift back was really nice, even though I kindof miss the social aspect of the shuttles. The new trail work seems great and the berms on Burmese Python were awesome, it seems like you guys mellowed them out some and they link together a lot easier than they did previously. I really like the new one at the top of Burmese as well.

We didn't get to try the new blue yet, it was my buddy's first time at the park and so we took it pretty easy especially considering the conditions.

Only suggestion, I mentioned this to the guys at the front desk, but the bottom of the woods section on Burmese has a tree with a few loose roots shooting out into the trail. I rode down with 5 others and all 6 of us got snagged by it in various ways, it almost sent me off the bike. Might be a good idea to cut them out. There are obviously lines around it, but it seemed like we all got funneled into the same place.

Glad you guys enjoyed the park. The roots you are speaking of are not part of a rideable line. I sent up one of our trail crew to check it out as soon as you mentioned it. I also rode all three lines all day and did not have an issue with any of them. For the easier bailout line the trail is designed to be ridden low and to the right. A faster rider would land on you if I opened the line up that you guys were trying to ride. Try riding the high left line next time, it's the easiest out of the three options. If you are still struggling with this section we cut an easier bailout line on the right that feeds into the easiest section of Black Bear.
