    Angelfire Stoke...

    Not sure what the deal is for opening weekend, but can't wait to get up there. This is from a couple years ago, hopefully someone has some keen stuff from last season to spice this thread up a bit as my footage is not so hot...

    I don't have any stoke, but am stoked. Who is going up when?
    And would anybody be looking at doing South Boundary when they do go up, or is it too early for that?

    Didn't have anything for AF only but here's some from the best three areas around (WP-AF-Paj). It's all footage of me following my daughter Michelle last summer:

    Oh I thought that was your wife. I was stalking her
    Actually I thought it was the other video you did where you were pinning it alone
    Heres a slow Ziggy video. Not too exciting

    Hell yeah! I'll be up there with my wife and kids for a week from June 29th- July 5th.....Then on to Durango. Yes, there will be beer drinking and downhilling (not in that order). Also bringing the trail bikes and we want to hit the South Boundary trail for the first time. Now that our son has his drivers license, thinking he could shuttle us to Taos, and we can ride back. It sounds a bit sketchy as I don't have a gps. Hoping we can make it happen anyhow!

    Thanks for the stoke!!

    Ok, here goes... don't shoot the messenger.
    My buddy Dave, who's good buddies w/ Hogan, the AF bike park top dawg, says that Hogan said things are clear & good up there, as of this weekend. My other buddy, said his buddy, who currently works for Hogan up in AF, says there is snow on some of the upper trails. I bet things will be fine this weekend and anything that's not open, isn't open for good reason. It's AF, so there's no shortage on good terrain!
    There you go... a non-conclusive, bullsh!t answer. What more can you expect (especiallly w/o pics) before opening day?

    I'm being optimistic and thinking this is perfect for hero dirt instead of dry powder. will be warm the rest of the week and this looks thin.

    along with the rest of the gravity-minded coloradans, I'll be coming down for Sat & Sun.... praying for a fast melt and hero dirt! So excited!

    Name is Paul, riding a bright yellow covert, don't be a stranger - we'll be camping, riding, beer-drinking all weekend long

    So, how was it last weekend? How are the new trails? Condition of trails? At least one inquiring mind wants to know. Thanks.

    The new upper Boulder Dash line is awesome and riding better as people use it more. Makes the entire Boulder Dash line so much more rewarding & longer.
    Also, the new lower part of Chutes & Ladders, at the bottom, has done the exact same thing - longer & better.
    Lemonade & Sierra were so perfectly wet & tacky that they begged to be ridden hard as ever. The harder you pushed your bike into those trails, the better they responded to the effort... tight singletrack twists & curves that grip so good!
    World Cup was what it always is: a tough-ass trail that keeps even the best riders on their toes.
    The re-invented Candyland is off the hook. It still needs to be ridden in by more riders, but it's got some amazing new huge berms and hip jumps. The big table-tops have been injected with steroids. They are huge floaters now. Much bigger air on each big table-top. They scare me.
    The new Angel's Plunge is ridden in much better and it totally rips. Especially when it was as wet and consolidated as it will ever get - due to the 1st weekend of the year combined with snow infusion.
    Each day dried everything out considerably. There was a huge transgression between opening day & the 3rd day of the year, for the bike park. Trails that were sloppy & muddy became absolutely delightful. Trails that were perfect on the first day, became dry, dusty & riddled with braking bumps by Sunday.
    Some of the best trails, DH Supreme & Chillin', were closed for good reason. Too wet & muddy, so they needed to be preserved for our own benefit.
    The place was crowded with hundreds of stoked CO, AZ, TX & NM downhill & freeriders all weekend. The staff handled the huge crowds as efficiently and speedily as I've ever seen (Kudos to the AF staff!). They even have new additional side-hooks on the chairs that allow a chair to carry 2 bikes instead of 1.
    Took a couple laps with the trail crew guys and they told me great things about the 2 new trails coming in this year: Hungry Hippo & Devinci's Code. We should be able to ride them on the last 2 or 3 weekends this year, after they are built. Looks like it will be able to come in better on the 2nd year, as with any new trail built in AF Bike Park. They can only build during the bike season due to snow, so all new trails are introduced at the end of the year and reach their potential by the second year, when they are actually ridden in by the riders.
    Also they have done some amazing re-shaping of lower Supreme. That line is turning into such an amazing, real-deal "greatest hits" trail.
    Things are looking great in AF. It blows my mind how they step it up so much more every year. Go hit that sh!t!!!!

    Ooo we have ALOT of trails. Its a bike mecca mainly for roadies. But ive never been bored riding the trails we have. Alot of it is rocky which is kind of annoying. But for the most part its good. I love some badass flowing single track with jumps.

    We do have freeride512 out here as well but I have not been to that park yet. Supposedly they are gonna be there at angel fire opening weekend.

    I remember when the mention of AF received little to no feedback. Heh..the DH bug is infectious!
