Gravity Feed: August 10, 2017

This week, Turtle Trail gets a touch-up and we're raising the bar for the final Summit Series competition of the season.

While trails like Party Wave and Westridge get the lion’s share of love from riders, you'll have just as much fun with less crowded runs and endless berms on Turtle Trail, which our Trail Crew extended to the top of Chair 1 last season to give riders an intermediate trail option from the top of the hill. This week the Crew gave the trail a complete rebuild, so be sure to check it out.

This Saturday is the last Summit Series of the season, featuring a High Air contest. The rules are simple – whoever clears the tallest height without knocking over the bar wins. Whether competing or spectating, this contest is always a favorite. Riders can register to compete in the base area Saturday morning, with practice from 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. and the competition starting at 1 p.m.

Hey, you guys! If you’re sticking around for the weekend, join us Saturday night in the Summit base area for a free screening of The Goonies (PG, 114 min.) as part of our Movies in the Meadow series. The show starts at 8 p.m., with seating available on a first-come, first-served basis, concessions available at Bighorn Smokehouse, and a Truffle Shuffle contest following the movie. Winner gets a GoPro 5!
 
It’s gonna be a high-flying, berm riding, Goonies-never-say-die(ing) weekend.
 
We'll see you on the dirt.
