    some NASTY muddy spots today... had to hose off completely after riding (obviously the bike, but us as well!!) shyanne after the split (going right at the wood double) was disgusting... no idea why they have it open.

    Hope more melts for next weekend, but I don't see it being mud free.

    That said... killer day today!

    I'm hoping to put together a vacation up there the following week, but I've never stayed there, just done day trips. Do you have any recommendations as to where to stay? I'm looking for something above youth hostel, but below The Ritz.

    Also, went up to Trestle on opening day, and it was awesome; by July 4th you should have a great time.

    For the last 4 years i have stayed at the WP Mtn Lodge right on the other side of HW 40 from the resort and have been very happy with them, They always have 20% off if you book online, This year i am staying at the Vintage because the wife wanted the out door pool and hot tube and the price was sweet, Also i can come and go as i please because of the Gondola at the hotel to the base of WP resort, but i just looked and they are filling up fast no Hotel rooms left just Studio/w Kitchenette and Lofted Studio , The best western is kind of high in my book so that is not and option ,

    I'm planning on making my first trip to Trestle on Friday while on my way to California. Any advice for someone who's only downhill experience is the Valmont Bike Park? Do I need to bring anything in particular?

    It was easy to skip the mud and have a great run

    I had a great day but I did see one guy pulling mud out of his pants. I guess it matters where you crash.

    Rent a downhill bike and armor. It wouldn't be a bad idea to pay for a lesson your first time or hang with some locals who ride it all the time and get pointers. And if you think you are going too fast let off the brakes.

    My twelve year old son and I were thinking of doing either Sol Vista or Trestle this weekend. My question is, which has the better middle ground for riding? We're not serious DHer's but we like our technical stuff and a few small drops. Which is going to be better for the both of us? We rode Keystone twice last year and he loved it. Mostly blues with a few "light" blacks mixed in. Any help would be appreciated.

    Both are fun. WP will have longer runs, but SV with their shorter ones make you less tired. HA! Either way, you're going to have a good time.

    Any suggestions on a place to for a one night stay? Doesn't have to be anything fancy. Another son is flying back into DIA on Monday afternoon so spending the night up in the mountains sounds like a good time. IE, thanks for the info. The kid's leaning towards WP right now. We'll see when it get's a bit closer.

    Sounds like Trestle may have what I'm looking for. Got a group of 4 of us XC racing types doing Firecracker 50 on Monday and looking to do some fun riding Tuesday without climbing. Does Trestle offer blue/"light black" and maybe even some green trails accessible by lift? We'll have had enough climbing after Monday.

    It'll be our first time doing lift access riding, so trying to make sure we don't get stuck walking our 4" xc bikes down crazy stuff.

    thanks for any insights

    Thinking about heading to Trestle for the first time this weekend. How long would one expect the lift lines to be on July 4th weekend?

    I'm not sure how much of Green World will be rideable by then, but it's a fun little flow trail. The blues that start halfway down are easily doable on an XC bike; my wife rode them on her Superlight last year. Just roll the features and you'll be fine.

    I've done downhill in other states - not worried about the riding part as long as things aren't too muddy, just possible long lift lines!

    Heck did it last summer on a 96 Klein Mantra pro with 2 1/2 Inch s Judy and 4" Alps 5 in the back and it was ok on the green and blues,
