    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.

    Maybe we can work out a lift ticket deal for the footy?

    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!
