 @evanlitt: Came here to say the same. Awesome to see a mere mortal training in w Carson. Building the trail ur self also helps w confidence a LOT!

 What a trail! Looks so good. Not sure how Carson is on skis but it'd be sick to see a winter reprise with the roles switched.

 He's a great snowboarder. But agreed, would be a rad follow up video!

 Lucas is an insanely good skier, I always thought he was chronically underrated. Could be a tall order for Carson trying to keep up as Lucas does huge BC doubles. Stoked to see him shred the bike pretty dang well too.

 @IsaacWislon82: Oh for sure, it wouldn't be an edit of big hits just like this one wasn't, or at least what I'm envisioning. More fun project vibe showcasing skills on creative terrain.

 CRAAZZZYY. FYI - This is actually in California, no need to move anywhere to get the goodness or buy a second home etc.

 Any intel on if this is going to be open to the public? The TORTA MTB group involvement hopefully means it is, but if not we should respect underground builders, these guys keep this sport alive.

 @mustbike: I watched a video about Dream Track in New Zealand and they said it cost around $5k to build. I'd be down to throw in on something like that and spend a few days in a digger.

 Digging starts on the public TORTA project in January - same trailbuilders, same dirt, same awesome PNW vibe. There are plenty of ways to help out, some of which can be done without ever leaving your home. (More info on that in the coming months).

 @dkidd: Who owns the land? This could be a good model to get something like this going out here on the east coast.

 @chriskneeland: just saying it doesn’t have to be that complicated. Yes, a capable excavator and a pile of cash can build anything fast.

 @bubbrubb: Tell me of this world with piles of cash?
