    Exactly. If someone is gonna be a shitty driver, better that they simply go off the road so as not to block the orderly flow of traffic.

    Most of the 'accidents' I've seen post road-widening were cars that got 1-2 tires sucked into the snowbank. Most of them were at the U-bend heading on the way down.

    In other news, the bowl changed the trail map on their website to include the new 'snow park' chair. Uh huh, I'll believe it when I'm actually riding the chair.

    At least they got a real trail map drawn by that James guy. I gotta get that coffee table book of his maps.
    No longer stuck.

    So that lift and terrain doesn't actually exist?

    Funny how trail maps don't tell the story of a place, nothing about that trail map gives off the impression that y'all have given me about the place.

    The runs are cut, the chair is mostly done and will supposedly be working this winter? But the chair was supposed to be running like two years ago. I don't know the details of that project but I've heard about issues with tower placement and cable length.

    You want a dishonest snowbowl map though look at the mtb "trails," all but one are a dirt road.

    And I've never heard of the annual hot laps hill climb.

    I got a pitcher of beer at the LRI that it will not run this year. I will take all comers. Even Pat.

    I don't know if they will get it done, but it can't help that Chris Greer, who was Pat's longest running maintenance guy, and groomer driver, who was very much involved implementing the plans, died after driving off the "high side" of Snowbowl Road June 7th.

    Yeah that's rough. And no I did not know about that when I made my guardrail comment. I didn't see a lot of details in the first article I pulled up but I suppose there are spots where the edge is pretty soft and it's a long way down.

    Snowbowl Instagram story has a shared photo from a guy that is working on the new chairlift. Search for @peathen9

    Based on his content I'd guess he is a maggot as well.

    Following him now. He's giving us more info in a few Instagram posts than Snowbowl has over the past few years.

    I got to share a chair with him early last season. He laughed hard, as regaled upon one of the times Pat pulled my pass. R.I.P. Chris.

    Second Pagoda. The deli lunch bar at Sa Wa Dee is worth it during the week, too.

    I have a friend who has skied Snowbowl for over fifty years, and worked up there for years starting when he was 12, he says it's the first death on the road that he's ever heard of (though countless vehicles have gone over the edge, including a grader). He was someone who drove the road year-round, which is a sobering fact for those of us who have long enjoyed pushing our vehicles on the road.

    If you're up here, pm me. I'll buy ya a beer.
    Why would you fly to Denver or Utah to bike when Nelson BC is a 5 hour drive and has some of the best riding anywhere?
