The big bikes fit better If u hang the rear wheel instead of front. Try that next time If u have a big 29er. Make sure not to tell the lifties or anyone else before u do it though. It's a secret that only 29er riders know. Also the line has to be long for this to work properly. Make sure everyone is there watching

If you hook it by the seat then it doesn't matter how long your bike is

Best way is to take your front tire off and hang by your rear tire...

I just hold mine off the side of the chair as I go up. Way more efficient.

Color me unconcerned. Some of the team have already met him and ridden the park with him. Sounds like he's beyond stoked. Further, he'll have plenty to figure out and be in charge of and the bike park is but a small component of that. If you think one person decides things around here you're quite far off the mark. It'll be fine. I bet you a 20 it keeps getting better.

Hopefully that is the case, all it would take is for them to bring one competent trail builder from Whistler and send them here to direct the other 3 people (would have been nice if they hired more people) to fix some of the issues with the park. I think in general though they are just too cheap, and once someone becomes half decent at building or maintaining trails they leave to go to some other trail building company.

Does Vail and Keystone have the sufficient mountain bike population to make money on the bike parks? WB did it right at the beginning but Vancouver and BC played a huge part in keeping the flow going. Also Whistler has a decent summer population that is stoked on bikes. Also pemberton and Squamish. So a lot of folks bike. How big is the biking in Vail and Keystone when all of Colorado is vying for a peice.

They don't right now cause they have been too cheap to invest in the park. Winter park opened a new trail recently and on closing weekend today the one lift to access it had 100+ people waiting in line lol. Didn't go but it reminded me of ski season opening day.
