    If a new trail is providing a large segment of the trail riding users lots of new joy, that is worth celebrating. If it's directional and biker only, even more so (because the more the full spectrum of bikers learns to appreciate bike-only directional, the better).

    Pretty much this, plus it's gotta be more interesting than riding the bike path along the creek back to the trailhead.
    The sheer quantity of bike specific trailbuilding on the Frange has been outstanding. Within the last few years we've gotten what, all of Floyd Hill, all of Maryland Mountain, new segments at Dakota Ridge, bike-only directional designations on Longhorn and Enchanted/Apex, and now a directional bike only connector alleviating the most congested section of LOTB? Even if not every segment directly appeals to my tastes I've gotta give that all a sturdy hell yeah.

    Looking like a wet, shitty closing weekend at ABasin

    And about new flow trails that are ďeasyĒ: Iím just excited about all the new trails and trail work being done by COMBA and Boulder MTB Alliance and Clear Creek & JeffCO. Maybe the new trail at Lair is ďeasyĒ? Oh well. Thatís why Ore Chute or Blackjack were created.

    I canít make it but thereís a mtn bike comp every Wednesday in June at Floyd Hill starting this afternoon. Might be fun to check out.

    What working adult can make a Weds afternoon race at Floyd Hill? Anyone making those needs to get a real job. Not like it's in a town you can just pedal to an event. Everyone there has to drive there. Wankers

    Nice work on the ski descents miserywhip and skiracer! I'm still bummed that the dust and warm temps stole much of my ski mojo this spring. I guess I'll be content with the killer winter and a bucket list peak to end the spring.

    After riding a bit on the front range over the past few days, I can see why people get excited about the directional and bike only trails. It's amazing how little flow there can be when there are hikers everywhere. I had a lot more fun on Maryland mountain than I've had in a long time as far as front range trails go. Even if it was crowded, at least they were all generally going the same direction. Hit Staunton on the way home and it was chock full of moderately unfriendly boomer hikers.

    If you can't get out of your job once a week at 4:30pm to ride your bike (prime working age groups start at 5:20-5:40), you're the one that needs to consider your employment choices.

    obviously you do not know what a real job is.

    Lol. Your ski stoke on the gram has been making me wonder why I haven't skied lately more than anyone.

    Hate to say it, but I fell for bike mode hard as soon as it got nice around here. It still hasn't got too hot and I'm enjoying every minute of it.

    Races at 5:20? So the Enduro bros show up at 3pm to get their DH practice on? Something tells me a bunch of general contractors are driving their Denali pickups to participate. So many tailgate pads....

    Do it! Skis were on and off, some dirtskinning, and it takes forever, but the alpine was still quite nice. Not really worth it from a vertical ft skied vs effort perspective, but a sweet summit and scratches that itch from always seeing it from 550.

    Snowing in breck currently, couple inches on the snowstake at the basin.

    I can't figure out if I like this weather pattern. Been hero dirt on the trails that are dry every morning, but also wouldn't mind some warm n sunny days since we've only had may two so far. Also doesn't help us sending out bike rentals when tourists see the forecast.

    If any of you guys are ever curious about summit trail conditions, the shop does a trail conditions page now. Updated way more frequently than the town of breck's page: https://www.slopestylebreck.com/serv...il-conditions/

    Dry dirt in town, but at this rate we ain't riding the Crest until August.

    Yeah, CBMBA was joking that 401 will be open in 2024. Pretty wild that there were trails open last December that are not ready to go now (like lupine). Even where the snow has melted, water is bubbling out of the ground.

    Is it called mountain biking when you have to stop every 10 seconds for a hiker? Cause this describes mountain biking on a tunnel trash trail Saturday morning.
