    New trail from Shadow Lake up to Puke Hill

    Looks like a new trail being built. They had about 200 feet constructed today starting at the bottom of Puke Hill down. I'm guessing to intersect Shadow Lake Loop, but don't know. It had a nice berm built.

    Yep. From Mountain Trails Friday update last week:

    "Jumping from the high desert in Round Valley to high alpine at Park City Mountain- we've begun work on a new connection between the Shadow Lake trail and Scotts saddle(the bottom of Puke hill). This trail will provide a really sweet alternative to the loose & rutted out double track that we've been using for 30 years to access the Crest."

    really? I guess I don't get it. The section of road from the top of shadow lake where the ST peters out into road to the bottom of puke hill can't be much more than 1/2 mile. Let's put in some totally new trail, not a tiny connector that really doesn't change much. That section was just fine because it already had great views and few crowds. A little road here and there is good for the soul. If you make everything machine-bench-cut generic single track it gets boring.

    how about some trail in the fat lip area extending over towards DV. Let's have more upper loops above the lifts that don't connect to the crest and the shuttlers from above.

    sorry, realize some MTF event is a better forum for these ideas...but ... oh well that's what the interwebs are for, right?

    More trail is always nice. MTF sucks at building trails, usually, but maybe they'll do a good job on this one.

    it's impossible to make one worse than the 2 existing options there now, though I have eaten my words when I've said something as steadfast as this before LOL
