Wet Trails Today for our Photo Zone - 10:49am, 7/19/2014

Even before we opened this morning the sky started to sprinkle! You know what that means… a brown powder day at the Snow Summit Bike Park today!  The rain wasn’t extreme enough to deter riders from showing up.  In fact it only helped to attract those riders who know that this kind of weather is absolutely perfect for making those turns on those tacky berms!

7-19 Conditions

Also, our Photo Zone is up and running again today as it usually is on the weekends…  Our Photographers are prepared to get a little mud splattered today at the their location on upper Party Wave and with these majestic clouds serving as a backdrop we’re expecting some pretty sick shots in today’s batch!  We’ve chatted with our Photographer’s and were able to come up with a list of tips to make sure you’re getting the best shot as you roll your tread across the frame of their lens.  Here’s they are:

7-19 Photo Zone
1.Stop and talk to the photographer! Our friendly photographers are more than happy to make sure you get what you’re looking for so that you’ll leave satisfied!
2. Get some space! Allowing distance from the riders ahead and behind you allows our lighting equipment to recharge for each rider.
3.Call your drop! As you can understand there are a lot of trees on the hill. Make sure you give us a heads up so we’re not surprised!
4. Ask how the photo looked to make sure we got the shot!
5. Have fun!

Snow Summit’s Weekly Pedal Press - 1:20pm, 7/17/2014

Pedal Press Mountain Biking PhotoMiracle Mile is the trail to be on this week as Trail Crew has shown it the most love! New: on lower Miracle Mile, where it splits into Turtle Trail, we have built a brand new super technical rock garden.  So come barrel over these new boulders for a new challenge other than just jumping!  Click Here for a little flick of what to expect in this new section!  This home video was shot by the creators of the bike park themselves, our Trail Crew!  Not only do they dig, but they can also shred and film!  Tripple-threat there!

Just up trail from the new rock garden there’s a feature called “Twisted Spoke”, if you’ve ridden our park regularly then we’re sure that you’re familiar with it, however there’s a new ripping berm going straight into that feature!  This new berm will improve your overall ride through that section!  On Party Wave we’ve added new pavers before the step down. This should allow a rider to achieve just the right amount of speed for step down shredding success!

As usual, maintenance is a part of Trail Crew’s weekly battle on the hill and even with the new additions they’ve been able to rebuilt about 10 berms that were in need of some love.

Keep your berms tacky friends and enjoying going downhill this weekend!
