    When they charge you 60 bucks a day to ride there, that'll dampen some joys.

    I'm definitely looking forward to it. I'm not building a new bike for it, but I do have a parts list that's almost complete. I almost hope my current bike isn't satisfactory.

    Anyone know where they're going to put it? My guess is they will use the Hogsback and/or Skyline chairs... Hopefully both, but just one wouldn't surprise me, at least for the first year.

    I'm excited but it's closer to drive to Whistler from Bellingham.

    Thanks! I had not seen that before. It all looks very promising.

    I'm cautiously optimistic that digging will start this year.

    I will say though, I rode Whistler in year 2 and it was a much different hill than it is today (as are the bikes!), so folks are going to have to curb their enthusiasm and know that "Rome" wasn't built in a day.

    Not that i've been to whistler, but seems that if the understanding were present back then, it would start off closer to what we have today, no? Plus I think the same crew that built Whistler is building Stevens, so they're coming in with some experience. That said, I would expect Stevens to evolve over the years.

    Yep, Gravity Logic did consult for Stevens, scouted the hill and designed their trail plan, so they are off to a great start for sure. That said, most of the early Whistler trails like Heart of Darkness, Schleyer, Ho Chi Minh and Joyride are still b!tchin' trails, so they didn't miss the mark too bad as they were learning up there.

    However, if you think about it from a building capacity and what trails need to go in the first season, they have to cater to different levels to ensure everyone can get down the hill. So, that means they'll have to focus on at least a blue and/or green level trail and hopefully one black/double black. Putting in 3-4 trails in the first year would be stellar, IMO, but not everyone of those is gonna be an A Line or O-Sin.

    Cheers,
    EB

    Very stoked. If they can get it going in 2011 with a handful of trails...and at least one of them an "advanced" DH tech line, I will be very happy. And, I will buy a seasons pass with no hesitation.

    actually, looking at their plan that's linked above, the first phase is only supposed to have 3 runs: beginner, intermediate, advanced.

    Will wait and see what season passes look like before making the commitment. What i've noticed about Stevens with their winter season pass is that their renewal prices are very nice.

    I think Stevens would be very smart to have an introductory "first year" season's pass offer. It would acknowledge that the park is building out it's infrastructure and it would hook the people that are hesitant about the whole concept of a bike park.

    Also, it might lure some folks that usually plunk down $400+ for a WBP pass. I'll be getting a whistler pass again, but will be curious to see what Stevens offers up.

    Winter pass at Steven's ~$400 early season
    Winter pass at Whistler $1,349 early season.

    therefore

    Summer pass Whistler: 400
    Summer pass Steven's: ~120?????

    Even if it's nothing spectacular the first year, having a chairlift up and rolling down should be a lot of fun. IMO. I'm new to downhill type stuff though.
