    Check in with the local bike shop, Altitude Cycle in Vernal. There's a strong local trail building urge there including shuttle DH and stunt latters and chutes.

    Very cold there now, burrrrrr. Summer is awesome! Drink bottled water, well water can be frack poisoned.

    Chutes and ladders was the freeride trail if I remember correctly. Awesome trails out there though. Altitude cycles are the guys to hit up for local riding info. There used to be a group that would ride every wednesday or so (xc guys) with beers and hotdogs afterwards.

    I'd say hogwash on the well water being frac poisoned, but I wouldn't drink it. Anything that breeds that many mosquitoes is bound to introduce you to the green apple two step.

    BTW, what takes you out to Vernal. Work was pretty hard to come by let alone keep when I left.
