    Lost Trail (MT/ID) shuttle fest 2017

    August 26 this year, which is earlier than last year. $60 registration through 5/31. I couldn't find the thread from last year because the search function blows.

    We rode warm springs last fall, it was really nice. Aside from the main ridge trail there are what, 2-3 other ones that drop off to the west?

    I feel like it's a little overpriced.
    Group buy?

    I think there were 5 main options. So there's the main ridge, and then 4 ways to drop off to the west. And then there's a few other trails in the area that can be incorporated into the ride if you want.

    The most technical ride, Overwhich, has nothing in common with the ridge rides other than the road climb. Then there are three that drop off the main Warm Springs Ridge trail. I was pretty surprised by how sustained and steep Fire Creek is, which is the last one before the Ridge proper descent. They are nothing alike.

    No.

    As for price, you get dinner, a beer, a shirt, shuttles, camping, music, etc all for $60.

    I dare you to try and ride three laps.

    I could have probably looked at the map before I said anything. We just did the ridge and I saw the few trails dropping down to the road early.


    But yeah, even 2-3 laps of the main warm springs ridge in a day would be worth the $60. It was one of the better rides I did last year, although not particularly fast or techy, just a nice scenic ride with a group of friends. Funny story, I was adjusting my saddle in the parking lot and stripped the clamp. Found a longer bolt off the airbox of the car and borrowed a hose clamp from a guy in the lot which kept it mostly in place. Was a little apprehensive about doing 20 backcountry miles but it worked out just fine.

    It was in September last year but overlapped with the archery opener and people got pissed.

    Still seems more like $30 or $45.

    Clearly you're not an event planner.

    Everyone I know who's gone has said great things about it. Hopefully I can make it this year.

    I'm not a lawyer either, so clearly that means I'm not allowed to know anything about anything.

    Christ, man. Have you ever gone to the event? Have you even rode those trails? If you had done either, you know it'd be worth the money. Plus, support the local mountain biking scene and groups you have instead of e-bitching about the feds taking trails away. Get out there!

    I was there the first year (still have the shirt...one of my favorites). Warm Springs is fun and beautiful and the shuttle setup was great. Only met great people and had good times camping out in the parking lot.

    I swear there is a semester in law school where they teach you to be a know it all twat. It seems like a few don't take it, but ime most lawyers do.
    2 who post here and 1 other I met must have skipped that one, but it seems like Rootskier took good notes.

    Believe it or not, people who didn't do an extra 3 years of reading and writing can know stuff and be good at stuff.

    FTR, you're the one who came off as a know it all twat, claiming it wasn't worth the price even though it seems you've never been.

    True. But part of knowing stuff and being good at stuff is knowing that there are things you don't know.

    All day unlimited shuttles, a meal, beer, bands, and camping, is worth $60. I mean, a single shuttle of the Whole Enchilada costs $30, $15 for the shortest shuttle in Moab. So $60 for all that seems fairly reasonable, especially if it is a fundraiser.

    Speaking of shuttles, Helena's Shuttle Fest is May 19-21. On Friday May 19th there's also an Ales for Trails party. The Helena Trailrider shuttle is sponsored by local businesses and runs all summer. This link has a schedule and some info.

    Sorry for the thread hijack, Root.

    Yes.

    Not the exclusive domain of lawyers.

    Most other posters here from Missoula are so NOT Missoula. For serious.
