    Had a great time today for Father's Day kitchen pass. I hadn't ridden Double Jeopardy before, and it was pretty fun. Looking to head up next weekend, too, to get the season pass.

    Went on Saturday, and it was amazing! Only my third time going, and it was excellent. Hey Keystone, are you listening? You need to step your game up a ton.

    I rode mostly Rainmaker/Long Trail/Boot Camp all day. There were muddy parts where water was running off which made it more difficult to flow over doubles and tables but the dirt was great. Looks like it's going to be a while before trails like Trestle DH and Boulevard are open though.

    There's a lot of snow up top.

    I'm trying to convince some never-ever's to come w/ me one day. Can you give some background of what you typically ride, and what riding Trestle was like so these NE's can relate? TIA.

    Boulevard and Shy Anne look to be completely locked down with snowdrifts. Flow is definitely impacted by mud / runoff but today was day one for me and I had a blast nonetheless.

    Sry for late reply. Most of out trails in Dallas are typically too flat or small ups and downs. Not that they are bad tho. So what i found out with downhill or freeride is that I can concentrate on small jumps and technical trails without worrying about pedaling and wearing myself out. And it's just totally different from my norm. Tho four or five trips down the half open mountain was a great workout and wore us out!! Worth every Penny spent, period.

    Went up there today. DAYUM is that place pedally when its muddy, i felt like i was riding xc all day. Is anyone else sad that they logged off the trail around double jeopardy?!? I miss all the trees in that stretch, it just feels off shredding that section with no trees!!! Cant wait for the rest of the park to open and dry off. A few of the jumps are pretty sketchy with all the mud.

    Update for this weekend - 70 degree temps are helping a ton!

    Hope to have everything below 5-points that is not already open ... opened Friday @ noon - this includes BLVD, Bear Arms, small section of Trestle DH etc. Please access all these trails thru the tunnel.

    Shy Ann - trying to get it open by Saturday @ noon.

    More to come as we know it...

    Save Trestle, anything can be ridden by NE's at WP. I love WP but don't think anything is too challenging there (no claim).
