Could be worse... Heard a wife and bunch of kids took over your trail because they do a better job working on it, ooooh snap.

I’m not sure who is all involved with that new cut section in the middle of the Squirrel but well done. From there down is running good. Hiked a little bit up from there to check the old line. It’s actually in pretty good shape. Just needs a brush back and some big old tables now. Lol

SoS/Baconator were primo this morning, buddy survived it and wants more. I promised his wife I wouldn’t kill him so next up will be the bike parks. Anyone done 5620 yet this year? Worth the drive?

If it's the section I'm thinking, I was told it's a few guys from Tolko

It looks like 5650 has lift access to the top this year. I’m itching to get out there

I saw on TF that the climb trail was closed, was wondering what was up with that.

In that case is there any point in bringing the DH bike there, or is the blue flow trail description accurate and a trail/enduro bike is better suited for this?

Edit, just watched a youtube vid, looks like any sort of DH bike would be way overkill.

Been really wet here in revy, seeing lots of pic from the shi hill and it's a mud fest.

Boulder's running mint right now, lots of new work as always and sunnyside just finally opened. Blanket and frisby dh/ufc are running good, martha ridge is almost clear, road shouldn't be to far behind, could access off the first road, maybe the second.

No need for a Dh bike for 5650, it didn’t even have breaking bumps when I went. Also, if you plan to do things like a UFC shuttle afterwards, you won’t want your big rig.

UFC and Ultimate Frisby are made for DH bikes....Steep, loose and fast! You also have Martha, Cartier and Boulder.

I somehow remember peddling; more like Big Ed than Nobles. Alcohol has turned my brain into Swiss cheese, though, and lots was drunk in Revy, so perhaps I am misremembering.

it's flowy up top with an odd pedal (UFC) but UF is gnarls.... and you won't get creaky crowns on your wimpy single crown.
