June 21 construction update & MTB instruction

When it's not raining, Trail Source is making great progress on the trails.  "Air Bear" our Blue/Black jump trail is nearly complete. "Joy Ride" with its huge berms, rollers, and roll-able table tops is looking spectacular.  If the weather cooperates, we are still hoping for a mid-July opener.  If we get more thunderstorms and rain....we'll see.  Our lift operations crew has completed the building of the entire upper chairlift platform and have even moved the platform in two giant pieces to the top of Lookout.  Early next week, after the Spartan Race people leave, we plan to start building a small skills area in front of the main chalet.  Finally, today I was able to show our first MTB instructor Griff the trail progress and possible teaching areas.  With the help of people like Griff, we are planning to offer a limited amount of MTB lessons this summer and fall.  Next year, we plan to offer even more lessons.  Our goal is offer a diverse menu of lessons for all ability levels similar to what we offer with ski/snowboard lessons in the winter.  Stay tuned for more updates coming very soon on lessons and MTB park construction efforts.
