    Trestle Bike Park opening day details

    Here we go. Kicking off the 2012 season in record shape! You will tell your kids (or future ones) about this opening day, because it could be a while before we get another one like this.

    Saturday, June 16 - Trestle Bike Park opens 7 days a week until Sept 23.

    Here’s what will be open.

    Wait, its actually way easier to tell you what will be closed – Only the bottom section of Boot Camp. That’s it.

    A few of the upper-most trails (above Sunspot) still have trees to clear but for all those looking to descend from the lifts… bring it.

    Cruel and Unusual will open Saturday! Be one of the first in the world to ride this new expert-only trail. A preview of it will post on vitalMTB Friday with Nick Simcik – check it.

    What else to expect?

    -Lower Beeall Ucanb got a facelift and a few new features. The bottom of the trail was lost due to the winter ski trail construction, so we made it better.
    -The trail crew has raked and squared almost every lip and berm on this mountain. Slap them high-five when you see them out riding Saturday.


    If you can make it up Friday to get your pass, Trestle Bike Park Shop is open Friday 9am-5pm. Avoid the crowd and get on the lift first thing Saturday AM…

    See you in a few days!

    Brain-dump complete.

    What ever happened/ when do you think we'll see those "two new trails near the base"? It'd be fun to sprint laps on gemini.

    Opening day is going to be all time. For you experts out there you have to check out cruel and unusual, it will be a lengendary trail in no time. The trail crew at Trestle outdid themselves and are creating trails that are unbelievable. My hats off to their skill and dedication.
    For those of you waiting for more trails under gemini, they are starting soon but the boys will be taking their time to do it right. Lots of maintenance and new additions in the works as well. I'll see everyone up here on the weekend and maybe a few beers and stories at Docs afterwards.

    Looking forward to opening weekend. Curious to see how Trestle stacks up to my old east coast haunts... Mountain Creek, Platty, Highland...

    Will there be any free days up in Steamboat w/ our Trestle season's?
    Or will we be able to ride the Gondi there, but will have to buy a pass for the bike?

    Beeall Ucanb improvements - New finish to Beeall since we lost the entire hillside to the ski run construction. These shots are walking down the trail from the 'old' step-down set-up for step-up.

    Why does this thing look like it'll send you straight into and about 1/2 way up that tree on the other side?

    I have to say I was disappointed in the preparations for opening weekend.

    Only one person at the computer so people could pick up season passes on Sunday?? Really, wasted an hour, not the biggest deal in the world, but... efficiency is the key to a successful business.

    The trails were riding ok, lots of fun. I like Cruel and Unusual, will be great when it gets worked in a little. Some of the other trails could use some love though, my GF would like to have seen all the loose rocks out of some of the easier trails (the blue ones)..

    Just some thoughts..

    Props to WP and the trail crew

    Yah so what the line was a bit long to get a season pass. And the trails were a bit dry.
    But Trestle is better than ever. Hats off to Bob and the crew. The new Beall Ucanb is sweet. Love the big drop. Can't wait to see what else they have in store for us.

    good job guys on the awesome opening weekend!

    yeah, it was a bit of a drag that the place was so busy saturday morning that it took an hour to get our passes... but whatever, it was AWESOME to see the park mobbed by so many riders!!!!

    i ripped off my rear mech sat, so i didn't get as many runs as i'd liked, but my son was stoked and hot-lapping all day sat and all morning on sunday. had to drag him off the hill early to go see Ministry... oh what a rough life!

    Sunday Sunday, was nice. No lines really.
    Trails need some rains, though.
    the drugs made me realize it's not about the drugs

    It was nice. I showed up at 9 and got my season pass 3 minutes later.

    I can't believe how dry it is already, last year was plywood across the boggy areas and soft, wet trails in many places. It was hardpack, dusty and slippery already. I hope for rain too...

    I was out there Sunday playing around. How big are the mandatory gaps on Cruel and Unusual? Just curious. I've just started getting comfortable jumping and I'm having a lot of fun airing it out a bit on Rainmaker, Boulevard, Boot Camp, and Beall Ucanb. Big gaps still unnerve me a bit so just curious what to expect. Thanks.
    Gotta get up to get down.
