    Cool (although hopefully that doesn't lead to the trails being even more crowded!). Great place to ride, that's for sure.
    '11 Specialized Enduro Expert for the trails
    '13 Felt Z4 for the road

Some very significant steps were made last summer. This summer it seems that on all fronts progress has been thwarted completely. For example
    At Canyons - the awesome people working on the trails are hog tied by the management
    Arcylon - is bogged down in legal limbo and the second trail can't go in yet
    Trailside lost it's funding to another project that went over budget.
    What a terrible selection. This summer is looking more and more frustrating

    What standards are you refering to? PC has amazing singletrack. Your statement would have been accurate if you said, "PC and Utah are 20 years behind the downhill/freeride scene". It's epic for XC.

    For the record, I enjoy all forms of biking-even road.

    Park City is one of the best places to mtn bike in the world. They've done a wonderful job all around especially integrating trails into a ski resort that still make you feel out in the middle of nowhere

    I heard from a reliable source that the xc guys have skills now. If that's true, then PC could be behind the times on all fronts. Glad to hear you are enjoying it.
