Gravity Feed: August 18th Update

Now that our Trail Crew has wrapped up all of the major trail building for the season, it has been a week of returning to the core trails of the Park for some maintenance and rebuilding as well as watching Upper Turtle ride in and tweaking it a bit here and there…

Upper Turtle is already very popular with our Park riders and has had more than it’s share of tires rolling across it this week. Our Trail Crew has posted up in a few key locations to see the approach and line riders are taking through certain sections. This has resulted in a little tweaking; changing up an in-slope here and an out-slope there, mellowing out some rollers and smoothing out a section or two. If you haven’t ridden Turtle from the top yet, get to the Park. It’s a super fun flow trail with 45 berms from the Mountain Top Trailhead back to Basecamp.

The brunt of our Trail Crew’s attention this week has been on returning to our existing trails and giving them some love and attention. Each day prior to opening, the Crew has had machines out on key features and sections sprucing things up. You’ll find all of our trails fine tuned for your weekend of riding.

This week, among other projects, the Crew will be rebuilding the step-up on Zyzzyx for our Summit Series #2 competition on Saturday, August 27th.  You’ve seen Ronnie Renner throw some amazing air in the moto version of this event. Come on out and show us how high you can jump your mountain bike and take home some great prizes including a 2017 Mammoth/Summit Bike Park Season Pass, GoPros and tons of MTB gear and equipment.  Registration is Saturday morning in the base area and the competition starts on Zyzzyx at 1 pm. Until then, we’ll see you on the dirt…
