    and a link to the snowpack report to see that some of those dates could be later this year with 30-40% more snow than average...

    This will be my first year coming to Colorado to ride bike parks. Early July timeframe; is there a group lift pass or anything like that to buy that'll cover more than 1 park? We want to ride Trestle, Keystone and possibly Granby. Or do we have to buy individual daily passes? Were looking at 4 days of riding. I did not know if parks teamed up with each other or not?

    They do not, with the exception of Angel Fire (NM) and Trestle (CO).

    Keystone has offered multiday ticket discounts in the past and may do so again this year.

    If you buy a 5pk at Keystone you get 4 "ride with a friend" tickets. Typically $10 off. Equals out to about 9 tickets for $30 each.

    From the rumor mill.

    https://www.facebook.com/noah.priege...nt_id=69411963

    Rumor has it from a sort of inside source that Keystone Bike Park will be building a few more trails this season(up to 6 possible). Building wont start until August, but they are making every effort to get open as early as possible. I encourage all my DH friends to buy a Keystone pass this year to express interest and show that people want to ride there because it is awesome! My source says they will try to remove snow to get trails open ASAP if the forest circus lets them.

    I was going to buy a 5pk. I haven't bought a season pass at Keystone since 2007. For those who don't remember that was when WP had Boulevard and Long trail only. Sol Vista didn't exist yet and the only other game in town was Vail and they did $11 tickets if you had a winter pass. Angel Fire had 4 runs; UP/DOWN XC course, DH and SuperD (what?! oh yeah I mean ENDURO).

    From this moment on, I will avoid saying the word "Enduro" at all costs, and cast shame upon others when they do so.

    Yeah, a solid month before anything in CO. Combine that with a closing date in late October it makes the drive and a season pass worth it.

    I've had a pass at AF 3 times in the last 5 years. Probably going to do it again.

    I was living in Glenwood Springs 2 summers ago which meant Snowmass was my main resort, so all summer I kept asking when they were going to complete the addition to the expresso trail that was supposed to allow access to the old race course. First it was July, then August then next season, but they were "super close". I was back for a week last summer and decided to check it out, went and asked the "bike patrol" guys and nobody had a clue what I was talking about. So I don't see it happening any time soon.

    Bump for new Keystone prices: Bike Park Prices | Keystone Mountain Biking | KeystoneResort.com

    There is a confusing array of options, but the hot sh1t is the new college pass, and the Free Ride pass that covers Vail, Keystone, Canyons, Northstar & Kirkwood.

    Here comes the commentary:

    Give Keystone your money. They didn't deserve it for a couple of years, that is true, but Keystone has really started to turn over a new leaf. When we gave WP our money, they used it to build a silly jump trail that no one really rides. Give Keystone your money, encourage them to build more DH trails, and let's see how this season goes.

    I come from Arizona once a year during the summer and hit Keystone quite frequently since we stay in Breck. I'm dang excited to hear that news and really enjoy their trails even with the limited love that they get.

    Angel Fire is worth the trip regardless of their early open / late close. Great trails for all levels or riders. People ask "what's your favorite DH resort in CO?" I respond with "Angel Fire, NM"

    That sucks. That was one gnarly freaking track, fast as you're brave enough to go. Screw Air DH at WP; Snowmass was a mother phacking DH course. Craziest DH run I ever had was that course in the pouring rain, silly ridiculous amounts of fun.

    I think most of the lift junkies from CO will be there. Not much need for a roll call.

    I called Keystone to see what information or proof is required to get the Military and College pass. [s]Will report back after they let me know.[/s]

    I was not able to get a definitive answer, but they believe winter rules will be used. This means you need to bring in a current student ID and registration showing 12 credit hours.



    Early Bird pricing ends 01 June.

    I talked to Keystone today, and they are shoveling out trails to get ready.

    Keystone Bike Park Announces June 13 Opening Day, Prepares for Exciting Season with New Clinics, pro Events and Introduction of Multi-resort Pass Offering - Press Releases - Vital MTB

    There may be some riding of fire roads to get when you want to go, but the rain and sunshine should make that short lived. Three days left to buy your pass at the discount rate.

    I just noticed Granby is hosting an eyndhurho race series that requires Strava. I guess they are not splurging on things like timing equipment.

    Just curious if there are any other riders on here in Colorado Springs? I just moved here last summer from BC and I am looking to ride as much Park as I can this summer, I have a upright rack that holds 4 bikes and can easily fit one in the back so looking for people to car pool and ride with.
