    WISP Help

    Can someone help me out. Me and a friend of mine are thinking about hitting the downhill at the WISP. We're both very much beginners to downhill. We mostly do XC using hardtail bikes. Would the WISP be something we could do? Is every trail real techinical and difficult? Any info would be appreciated. Also are they still allowing the bikes in October?

    Thanks

    I actually just came back from wisp this past sunday.this was my first time with downhill am i am more of an xc rider converting to all mountain and i enjoyed the trails. they were hard to follow because they arent labled that great so you had to just guess if it was at your level of riding. they have trails there for all levels of riding. Just wished it had more ladders and other kinds of challenges other than the trail itself. Had a good time there and would go back if i didnt live so far away.

    How busy was it when you were there this weekend? This coming weekend is the last for biking until spring. I live within an hour of the Wisp.

    Everything at wisp is very rideable. If you are decent at XC you'll shouldn't have much problems with wisp. Just if you are a beginner don't go too fast, because the DH trails at Wisp are very fast if you are not careful.

    You may also want to look into 7 springs if they are still open, just just opened a beginner friendly DH trail this year.

    This weekend I believe is the last weekend for bikes at wisp. I hear the lift fee is going to be close to F R E E. But Im not 100%, I heard from a friend who heard from the uncles, borthers, cousins, sisters, moms, dogs, owners, cat.

    Give them a call =)

    I went from 11 to 1 and there was maybe a total of 3 or 4 people on the whole mountain. No traffic on the trails it was pretty nice. I would go again but live to far away.

    Yes it was free, there will be many other ladders, drops and gaps for next season.
    Have fun.
