So, Northstar stuck to their word after bailing on biking for summer 06.

Who's stoked? I'm for sure getting a season pass and making Northstar a frequent thing this summer. They added 5 new trails and made "Improvements". But when I see it I'll believe it. Redardless, they're open this summer, with races too!

Who's gonna be part of the N* Bomber Crew...? I knew not changing my user title would bring good luck.

Northstar Press release.....

I found this press release on their website. Looks like they open on June 29th...

NORTHSTAR-AT-TAHOE™ RESORT TO REOPEN MOUNTAIN BIKE PARK WITH NEW & IMPROVED TECHNICAL TERRAIN, ADDITIONAL LIFT ACCESS


Resort’s First Signature Trail, Skills Development Area and a New Jump Park Round Out Challenging Mountain Bike Experience



TRUCKEE, Calif. – March 26, 2007 – After a one-year hiatus, Northstar-at-Tahoe Resort’s mountain bike park, the largest in Northern California, will reopen this summer offering five new trail segments, two full new trails, increased lift access with the addition of the Tahoe Zephyr Express, a new jump park, skills development areas, LiveWire, the resort’s first signature trail, and much more.

This year, with the addition of the new Tahoe Zephyr Express six-person express chairlift, riders will benefit from the resort’s ability to provide more uphill capacity than ever before. Providing access to more than 100 miles of trails, the Gondola Express, Vista Express and Tahoe Zephyr Express chairlifts make it easy for riders to experience the technical downhill and freestyle features they crave.

“We are excited to be reopening the Northstar™ Resort mountain bike park, and pleased to be able to offer our guests enhanced features, new terrain, and better lift access than ever before,” said Kyle Crezee, Northstar Resort’s mountain bike park manager. “Our goal is to continue to progress the sport of mountain biking and provide riders from intermediate to expert levels with rugged, technical terrain and challenging freestyle features that will keep them coming back for more.”

LiveWire, Northstar Resort’s first signature trail is scheduled to open mid-summer, permits pending, and will maintain an average of six feet in width, feature a grade ranging between 6 and 9 percent, and will be 1.5 miles long. The trail boasts tabletops and large berms throughout the course of the run, and will be the first fully irrigated mountain bike trail at the resort, helping to prevent dust clouds from erupting as riders make their way down.

New this year, Northstar Resort will also introduce Skills Development Areas, allowing those who want to get started with log and ladder rides to learn in less intimidating fashion as the features are much closer to the ground. A new jump park located at mid-mountain between the bases of the Vista Express and Tahoe Zephyr Express chairlifts will also provide riders with an opportunity to practice their latest tricks.

Northstar Resort’s Mountain Bike Park is scheduled to open for the summer season on June 29, 2007, and is scheduled to be open daily, weather and conditions permitting, through September 3 and Friday-Sunday until October 7. Daily operating hours will be 9:30 a.m.-4 p.m.

Helmets are required for all riders, and can be rented along with bikes and other equipment at the resort. Daily lift tickets are required for lift access and can be purchased for $39. Mountain Bike Park season passes will also be available for $229.

For those with a competitive edge, Northstar Resort will again host the Downhill Race Series and the Cross-Country Race Series this summer, open to riders of all ages. Race dates and additional information can be found online at NorthstarAtTahoe.com.

Most definetly! Man, even more excited now.

Anyone know if they are going to still to the bike-shop employee deal??
Probably not even going to be worth the bother. I'll just get the season pass, it'll work out just as good for as many days as I'm going to be there.

I'm in! Hopefully my truck will be running by then, If not I'll make a significant contribution towards fuel ect. for any one who can squeeze me and my bike in. I'll find a way there, even if it means sucking up to the GF. I might have to rub some bunions on her feet, but I'll be there with my lift ticket.

BTW, what's the Northstar bomber crew?:ihih:
