    KeyStone or W. Park next week?

    I've ridden Keystone (loved it), Vail (dissapointed) and now I want to get in Winter Park before the lifts stop running.

    Should we ride it the coming week or stick to Keystone, where I love the way the trails or kept and the technical and clean blue singletrack? Is Winter Park similar to Keystone?

    Thanks in advance.

    Shawn.

    I would definately say Keystone!
    Winter Park is up and coming but not worth missing the last weekend of riding at Keystone. Next season they will alot of snew stuff going in and Keystone supposedly should have some new stuff going in before they close for the summer. a drop park was talked about by the crew several weeks ago...

    I believe WP closed for the season after Labor Day weekend. Should make your choice easier.

    keystone

    We rode both lifts at the begining of August. I would do keystone over WP. The trails are longer and more difficult. The only advantage that WP has is that on the downhill runs there are many options. The more different options you take the further you get away from the lift acess.

    Micheal & Brock Patterson a little bit...

    Shawn and I...a few others in between... Some mojo Kids and what not...

    Good times...Finally hit that left hand line on Cowboy Up Rock garden 5 times successfully today..So fast and smooth...
    I'm so disappointed that I didnt hit that on my race run.

    I dunno, but It seemed like I was able to go alot faster today than I went last weekend...
    I cannot wait until next season rockin the 303!

    But next weekend should be good times to close out the DH season!

    is making a comeback.

    Turns out that five years of not mountain biking, really makes one strive to get back to it.

    Yeah, I'm headed to Keystone next sunday for the last Lift assisted DH of the season!
    Should be good times. Prolly going to be crowded as well. I have talked to a few people who are going. So far I know myself, Todd, and Shawn. But I Imagine even more than that just from our crew...
