    2017 Gravity Feed Hero 600x400

    This week our Trail Crew’s primary focus is on building out more base area fun.

    Come enjoy the Park, now open daily, and check out the progress on the mirrored Pump Track and Pro Line in the Skill Builder Park. Things are taking shape, with the Crew moving dirt, placing containers, and setting up scaffolding as quickly as possible.

    Got some hikers in your group? The Log Chute hiking trail got a little love this week, which means the 1.5 mile, hiking only trail will be in great shape for the weekend.

    Next week will see the return of the Mulch Jump and addition of new features to the Skill Builder Park. Later this summer, we'll be adding to our Adopt-A-Trail program with the National Forest Service.

    Plans are in place to revamp a bike trail called Dickey's – not to be confused with our ski trail. The trail, which is named after Summit founder Dick Kuhn, who helped develop and rode the trail back in the day, will be accessed from our Mountain Top Trailhead and drop riders onto Going Green to return to Basecamp.

    Stay tuned to Gravity Feed for updates on this and other projects in the Park this summer. We'll see you on the dirt ...

    2017 Gravity Feed Hero 600x400

    Our Trail Crew continues to tackle projects across the Park, with Turtle Trail getting a touch up, and the Pro Line and the dual Pump Track under construction.

    Basecamp will be buzzing soon with the return of the Pro Line to the Skill Builder Park. The Crew has designed four new jumps for this line, including two mulch jumps and two jumps for the line itself.

    Last week a lot of young riders were on the new Junior Pump Track. This weekend our Crankworks-style Pump Track for more advanced riders will be under construction, with a mirrored layout so riders can compete head-to-head. Located by the drive of Chair 4, the new track hosts our second Summit Series event on July 8. Don't miss it.

    On the hill, the guys are re-building, sweeping, and replacing pavers on Turtle Trail. With over 50 berms from top to bottom, the trail must essentially be re-built every year due to its location.

    On the flip-side, our beginner trail – Going Green – spent the winter under a blanket of snow so it feels like a well-seasoned trail, even though it’s only one season old. Come ride it and see.

    Check back with us next week for an update on our Adopt-A-Trail program and the Skill Builder Park. Until then, we'll see you on the dirt...

    Summit Series Saturday- Get Registration details here.
    Welcome back to your weekly Gravity Feed where you'll find all of the very latest on what's happening at the Summit Bike Park.

    The word on the dirt is everyone enjoyed some smooth racing during the Kenda Cup last weekend. Throughout the downtime at the Park this week, construction is in full swing.

    Our Trail Crew continues in "Divide & Conquer" mode this week. While half the team returns to the core of the Park, half hangs in the Base Area to bring back our Pump Tracks, Skill Builder Parks and Pro-Lines after a year-long absence. With the Park closed midweek, our Crew has to take advantage of the lack of traffic and get on the well ridden, core trails to patch berms and provide the smoothest product possible. These boys have broad shoulders, though. The remainder of the Crew is installing the Jr Pump track, for riding this weekend, and beginning design of the mirrored Pump Tracks for head-to-head racing and Pro Lines. You'll see a lot going on this weekend as you check out the new Jr Pump Track.

    We'll also be hosting the first Summit Series event of the season- a best whip on the Hot Donna ramp off Chair 1. Registration will be in the Adventure Academy from 9-11:30 am with a practice session from 11:30-12:30 pm and the competition starting at 12:30. We'll see you then...
