    All of the GNAR! was moved to the front range last fall. Googlemaps can help you out.

    I'd suggest calling the bike shops in telluride..There's several hours of great xc at the resort and I know they have some sort of a downhill course. Not sure if it's "gnarr"

    I found some GNAR! under my couch the other day. My four year old must have put that sandwich there months ago. I would have sent it to you if I'd seen your post earlier.

    Seriously, just ride the free gondola. I'm sure there is plenty of fun stuff to entertain you.

    Is this stuff ridable by a skilled rider on a slack 6" bike? Doesn't look too gnarly, but hard to tell from the video. Thinking about heading out there next week

    You should be fine - we ran in to a cat there a couple weeks back that was killing it on a Reign with 2.5s and a nice big fox fork. Another dude was on a specialized pitch and seemed to be doing just fine too.

    It's a lot steeper then it looks in that video. Problem with those chest mount cameras is they tend to make everything look flat. Some of the stuff is definitely pretty steep, there's a road gap and a pretty big drop on the WC course.

    You should be fine though, I've ridden there a couple times on a slack 6'' travel bike and ridden everything aside from the WC drop. They don't have a ton of trails, but what they do have is way fun and it's free! Definitely worth the trip.
    Speed has never killed anybody. Suddenly becoming stationary... that's what gets you.

    Pan is my fav - glad you had a blast. Will be cool if that place picks up some momentum, killer destination.

    i spoke with some of the park builders there, and they've got plenty of plans coming up soon! and soon they are putting speakers in the super G so when it stops you know whats up and here is the "wc drop" dont look like much, but its prob the biggest feature there.
