    You gotta hand it to that guy. I don’t know him personally, but, living in Durango, I know people who know him and he’ll pretty much throw money at anything if he thinks it’s a good idea. Now that they have a full time Mtn Bike guy in house, I imagine we’ll see an expansion of summer opportunities at the MCP resorts. They’ve upped the game at Purgatory though the power pass no longer gets you any bike uplifts.

    He bought this roller coaster for Purgatory and, the rumor was that the roller coaster company refused to install it because the terrain was too steep, so they just did it themselves.

    I'm not even sure why I came in and checked out this thread, but I agree.

    It's only 350'. Why is assist of any kind needed?
    Why Johnny Ringo, you look like someone just walked over your grave.

    Those Texans are wusses; let them come to BC for some 2000 ft vertical; and no shuttle....or lift.

    It's probably for "runs per day" over hours of climbing

    I learned to ski at a southern Wisconsin resort with about a 300' vertical. My mind was blown the first time I went to Colorado.

    It's called down hilling and it's fun.

    Hmm... Novel concept, but it'll never catch on.
