We're in the business of getting rad.
Introducing Trail Engaged; a digital suggestion box straight to the Bike Park team. If you have an idea of how to improve the Bike Park, fix a specific part of the trail, enhance a jump or add a berm, make a new type of trail, or simply just provide your feedback, we want to know.
The Trail Crew are receiving suggestions from riders every day and we know not every suggestion can be done. But for the first time, Trail Engaged provides a platform for your comments to be heard. Every week we share your comments and look for ways to immediately improve the Park or work general themes into future planning.
So it's time to be heard. SUBMIT YOUR SUGGESTION
So far, we have received a ton of really great feedback. Many of the recommendations that come in relate to sections of trail we are already working on, or have plans to work on before the end of the season. But, the Bike Park team has also received many ideas that they hadn't thought of before. Below are five suggestions from our inbox that highlight some cool ideas:1. More jumps less bumps! Another trail similar to A-line would be awesome and I feel a lot of people would like that. And I understand that breaking bumps are unavoidable but in some parts of A-Line they really need to be worked on. And possibly build another jump trail similar to crank it up. There are way less jump trails then tech stuff and I think a lot of people prefer jump trails. Thank you for the opportunity to give feedback, see you in September!
2. I really like the last feature on the new crab apple hits (the on/off dirt box) something like that would be really awesome on aline or dirt merchant it would be awesome if you can do it some time.
3. Hi, First off, great job with the bike park this season. The amount of work done for opening day and early in the season was remarkable. My request is for more technical single track around the single black/easier double black level. My favourite trails include No Joke, Afternoon Delight/Original Delight exit, O-sin and Schleyer. I'm hoping some of the new Creekside trails are in that vein.
4. Hi guys, Awesome work in the park, but can you fix the ride out for the last roll on Detroit Rock City (you know where it merges with Clown Shoes). It is so beat up now it is like riding through stairs. That would be awesome, keep up the good work otherwise!
5. It would be nice to have one more flow trail at the base that will spread people out off of Heart Of Darkness and Lower Aline that will always be there and won't need to get rebuilt every summer. I know there is a lack of space but it would be rad to have one more. Down hill pump track with doubles and triples. The joy cross trail in the bone yard is nice but it gets plowed every fall. Thanks for all your hard work making this place rad. Photo - Mitch Winton, Coast Mountain Photography
