    Blue Mt

    Does anyone have any feedback about Blue Mt bike park? Looking for info on the green and blue trails, I'm pedaling a Stumpjumper. Thanks for any info.

    I went once, earlier this season, did every green and blue except Jambalaya. You'll be fine. I was on a Transition Bandit 29 with 130-140mm, my friend was on a Trek Rumblefish 29 with 120mm.

    Some sections would have been more fun on a DH bike but it wasn't really holding us back to the point that I was wishing I would have dropped $80 or whatever for a DH rental.

    Also, being my first time there, I was perfectly content doing only the green and blue trails. My hands were so worn out from tensing up that I couldn't open them at one point (I need to work on that lol). Plenty of fun to be had without venturing onto the black trails.

    Edit: Not sure if you have a dropper post but if you don't, you can just keep your seat slammed down the whole day, no need to have it raised for sitting and pedaling at any point.

    Blue is very fun on a trailbike. I actually tend to avoid the greens there, they're pretty choppy, but the blues and even a couple of the blacks are great even for mere mortals. (And I say that as someone who doesn't find Launch very fun on a trailbike.) I've spent entire afternoons just on King Tut to Ewok and never stopped smiling.
