If by Pinkbike, you mean the drop on NE Style at the top, that's simple. Just casually roll into it, don't pedal or brake and you should make it perfectly. I've read its 12' by 12' so the gap out to the landing isn't far by any means.

No, it's creep the turn, then one crank.

Im going to try to find someone that can tow me in, so im not too worried about the speed. Im more worried cuz the drop looks a little offline from the landing, and ive heard stories and seen videos of people washing out on the landing

All about the speed you can carry in the turn and then what you do off the drop. If you squash it speed is different than popping up.

Ah, sorry. I meant to say, the right speed is pedaling as fast as you can out of the turn and don't stop.

Little late for this one, but do not crank twice coming out of that turn for "new growth". I've seen multiple people try this incorrectly and they end up overshooting the crap out of the landing. Have someone tow you in if you're thinking about it, that's how you'll know the right speed. Not saying two or one crank isn't valid, but these people have hit the drop before and know the speed. Personally as soon as I start to enter the wooden turn before it it's brakes off, no peddle, but this will not work for everyone.

Again I've never been there, but I would love to get out there some day to ride and I would happily make a donation toward the cause in the meantime! I'm sure many others would too! Even if it only generates 10k, or 100k. It could potentially go a long way in funding a new or new but used chairlift for the bike park. And that would be epic Big Grin

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
A bit late to this party, but Cannon ski mountain put in a new fixed double back in 2010/11 at a cost of $3 million...

Just got back from Wensduro and the trails seem really beat up. Terrible braking bumps and big holes mid-berm. We were there a couple of months ago and they were considerably better.

Oh right, Thanks chief. Good to compare to the year where we didn't have historic levels of rainfall and when rider runs were limited due to covid.
