    yeah, this is a bummer. I would like to take the course, and every time there has been one in the area, less than two weeks notice is given. Its a shame the industry sees the area as an afterthought. Perhaps if more notice was given, more folks would sign up and the region would be on their radar.

    yeah hopefully. I think that most of us recognize the need for great instruction and instructors (I think we have a great group but I'm biased of course). It's an integral part of growing the sport. The challenge is pretty simple, the best course is given by a very small company based out of Whistler. Their primary clients are the big kids, Whistler and the others in Colorado. Those of us in WV, VA, and a couple of other places try to tag into a circuit based on availability.

    I'm hopeful that next year we'll be able to plan ahead, and maybe work something out with our partners like Snowshoe or Timberline for a central area where we can do the training.

    Yep, that's right. We have a wedding going up at that time, won't take too long (mountain top ceremony), so good time to have a beer or bite to eat! Those with 4 hour tickets will have an hour added on.

    They don't want mountain bikers photo bombing their ceremony??

    Thanks for the verification!

    Guess not! I tried to convince them to zipline down after the ceremony but they haven't taken me up on it. Strange, when I lived in Whistler almost all of the people who I knew that had Mtn Top ceremonies would ski/board down in their outfits. I'd bet there have been a few bike park ceremonies as well

    Hey Bryce - I'm hoping to come down next weekend with my buddies (either the 26th or 27th). Would it be cool if I brought my video drone to shoot some footage on the features at the bottom?

    Is there someone I should clear it with on your staff?

    yup no problem. I'll let patrol know as well as staff. Just make sure that there are no hazards near the trail, buzzing people, potential to crash on trail, etc.

    Look forward to seeing the footage (and maybe using it too )!

    You guys could look at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...on-sports-dron and work something out. Good advertising for them and you could have a rental or two.

    Watch out for the zip lines and chair lifts that run overhead in very near proximity to the features at the base!

    I'm going to bring my DSLR and shoot some photos/video (when I'm not riding) if that's cool. Not my first time shooting MTB, so I know well enough to stay out of the way!

    Sounds good. We're always happy to have respectful folks with just the right blend of common sense taking pics. So long as you let us know where people can find them.

    Yeah, only took a few shots yesterday before the rain got too hard to keep shooting. I'll be back and aim to make a day of it, though.

    Pants, were you out there on Sunday as well? There was a guy snapping photos down near the features before lunch. If so, looking forward to seeing if you inadvertently got me!

    No, that wasn't me. I was only up there on Saturday, and was posted up by the drop on Car Bomb. I was only there for about 20 minutes before the rain got to be too much, but I had plans to go down and shoot at some of the newer features at the bottom.

    I'd like to say a big thank you to the Bryce Bike Park team. I had a stupid fall on Sunday that required stitches and they were awesome getting me off the hill and the wound cleaned up.

    I'll be back as soon as I can bend my knee again!

    Hey there,

    So sorry to hear about your injury! I hope at least it happened towards the end of your day? Thanks for the compliments, we're very proud and lucky to have such a great crew of first responders and crew.

    Heal quickly!

    I should have posted earlier, but it has been a crazy few days...

    Huge shout out to Bryce Resort for hosting the Ladies Clinic with Sue Haywood a couple of weeks ago. It was an awesome time and I was able to really hone some skills!

    Thanks again!

    Awesome thanks so much for the feedback! We had a great time as well. Something to be said for keeping with small groups.

    Not sure if you're aware or not but here is another women's event that Sue (and others will be back for)!

    Hey Bryce. I went online looking for ticket prices in September, and there was nothing available. I know you guys have the all mountain festival in late September. Are you guys closed that month? I really hope not. I was looking forward to checking Bryce out. Never been to a bike park before. Thanks in advance

    The info is on their web page:
    Bike Park Hours & Rates - Bryce Resort

    Maybe you missed it because it is under "Spring and Fall Hours".

    If you are looking for ticket prices, they are on the page as well.

    Sorry for the delay in my reply. Yp we're open on weekends throughout Sept and Oct. When the online sales portal isn't loaded with inventory then it says that we're sold out even though we don't cap quantities so it can get confusing.

    No worries though we will be open and ready for the masses!

    Thanks to the aid station staff for patching me up after I went down on Brew Thru yesterday! It was my first and hopefully only trip there, but the helpful and friendly staff took the pain out of the antiseptic spray on my back. Although I'm stiff as all hell today, I left with a big smile on my face as always. Got some decent pictures, too:

    Great Pics! I'm curious though….why is it your "hopefully only" trip to Bryce?

    FYI, I'm a Bike Patroller there. I wasn't there the day you were injured, but I'm curious if you have some input…we're always looking for ways to improve our service.

    That was clumsy writing on my part- meant first and only trip to the aid station. I've been to Bryce three times this season (four last year) and plan on making several more visits before the season ends. Y'all are great, never heard anything but good stuff from people who have gotten tweaked and needed some help.

    Aw Man! I was hoping to go on 9/15 but it looks like they are under fall hours. Bryce stay open for one more week during the week please! I was hoping to meet my brother there for a day of riding. Oh well. Anyone know of any good singletrack rides near Bryce? say in the 15-20 mile range?

    It's not 15-20 miles, but the Tillman West/Narrowback trails down near Bridgewater are pretty top notch.

    There are quite a few great rides right from here. Good 14 mile loop within 5 minutes of the resort as well. When you come up ask for Ryan and he can fill you in!

    Again, another great 2 day trip up to Bryce. New milestones, great riding and some tacky conditions.

    Bryce,
    The promoter of the races in September has the trails outlined very clearly for DH and Enduro, but no one can seem to translate details of what the climbs look like for the enduro on Sunday. Clearly 5 runs from the top of the mountain. Someone told me two climbs up sundowner and 3 lift rides. Any clarification??

    Thanks!

    So no real climbs, there is one area where you climb up Sundowner briefly before accessing Carbomb (or so it seems)

    Had a great time this past weekend, although it ended shorter then I wanted on Monday. I will be recovering the rest of this week from my spill wound up with some bruised ribs but I will be back next season for sure with a new bike. Thanks for having a fast response team and everyone being so friendly.

    BryceMtn,

    Thanks for the reply. We would like to do some riding in and around Bryce this coming monday. I know the park isn't open, but is there anyone I could talk to/email to get info on local trails before monday? Thanks.

    Greg

    Hi folks,

    Just a heads up, couple of good events happening this month. I've put links into this post for you.

    Friday October 10th will be our annual Trek Demo Day, spaces are limited, lift tickets are free. Try out the newest and best for 2015 both MTB and Road Bikes (we will have some loops mapped). Remember though to bring your own bike as well since the demo allows only a couple of laps on each bike style so that everyone gets a chance.

    Bryce Resort Events Schedule - Bryce Resort

    Also, our closing weekend Bike Bonanza Saturday October 25th, always a great party. Music, deals, give away's, raffles for a couple of season's passes.

    Bryce Resort Events Schedule - Bryce Resort

    See you soon!
