    Breck Freeride Park beta?

    I am working on a dirt jump/freeride park here in Salida. I want to go check out the Breck park tomorrow. I was wondering what people thought of it. And just general information. What kinds of features does it have, etc?

    Nothing too hard for a seasoned freerider. But pretty challenging for XC rider.
    It's tighter/smaller than the pictures lend you to believe.
    But a good use of the space, and serveral different line possibilities.
    Tree cover is a big plus too.

    If it was in my town I might ride it once a month.

    Problem with it is it gets old fast, like once you've ridden all the stunts
    3 or 4 times. If you build your park so that the stunts can be reconfigured
    once a month/season it would get more use. Something like bolting the
    different parts of the stunts together rather than nailing/screwing them to
    together.

    Did they build jumps or is it just wood stunts? We don't have the gravity advantage at our site. We have an area of flat ground.

    It is pretty much all wood and a natural log ride. It is all built on a fairly flat piece of land.
    As bikecruz stated it gets boring pretty fast but still better than nothing.

    There's two or three small dirt jumps, maybe built by the locals, and about a dozen wooden stunts. It's on a very slight downhill, only notice its a hill when riding back up.

    The stunts at the base of Keystone Resort might be a good place to see too.

    build a platform to enter the djs and freeride stunts. make a ramp entrance to the djs and drop off the platform into wood stunts.
