    Snowmass to open 6-pack chairlift to bikes!!!

    Yes,

    You heard it here first. For (1) weekend.....Official word will be announced early next week, but the High Speed 6-pack chairlift will service the PRO DH, KAR to Scortch DH. XC and Freeriders can access Cross Mtn Trails, Connector, West Govt. The entire Sam's Knob side of the mountain will be open for Lift Serve bike service 2300+ vertical Ft! The dates we are looking at will be Aug 1 and 2. My early apologies to those planning on attending Crank Werx, but maybe check out a day of new DHing and then head over to WP. Get an early practice in on the new features of the Blast the Mass ProDH or come see what Snowmass has to offer for DH. More details and an official Press Release are coming. Thanks to all who are making this possible! It has been a long time coming.

    If you don't do it this year, you'll be one year older when you do.
