    I’m not Josh, but that’s Stairway to Heaven.

    Yes Stairway to Heaven at #2 canyon. Endless green circle downhill!

    This weekend I sampled my Galbraith and Tiger. Both were prime condition but the Tiger dirt was out of this world!

    so was hoping to go back to sun valley or perhaps bend when the kids are done with skiing late june to rent a house and do some biking. unfortunately due to the pent up demand everywhere is booked. I mean everywhere - sun valley, whitefish, bend, leavenworth, wenatchee, roslyn. Any mtn bike destinations within a 12 hour drive with reliable sunny weather in june (not seattle/bellingham) that I may have overlooked? Walla Walla? Sandpoint?

    Did you try Ellensburg... 40 min to roslyn, Just over 1 hr to Wenatchee or Leavenworth. Local trails 10 mins from town. Whipsaw brewery and iron horse brewery in town, plenty of food options.

    Oh maybe Winthrop... I'm sure that's booked out too.

    CDA is where you want to be. Sandpoint and Kellog are easy drives, also close to spocompton for Beacon Hill trails.

    Still way early is my guess. That north facing couloir is not fun to traverse on snow in bike shoes. Being as shaded and high up as it is, I'd guess a couple more weeks, maybe more. I've had mixed results going there before the end of June.

    Have you tried using your imagination? Discounting Wenatchee, I live here, I wouldn’t take a summer vacation in any of those places. They’re always going to be crowded and booked up in the summer.

    I would look for an off the beaten path small town east of the crest that doesn’t get any attention, settle in, adjust your expectations and explore. You might be surprised what you find.

    Not yet! I was scoping out some of the terrain between ancient lakes and the bridge on google maps and saw that trail. I'll have to check it out. New job has me driving past 4 days a week--I've been exploring different draws that lead down to river... Found about 8 disc golf discs so far, no snakes.

    Kachess is going to still be buried in lots of snow right now.

    July 4-5 for the loop and about a week before for an out and back. Maybe add a week or two to that this year unless we have a scorching June. In addition to that N facing couloir when doing the loop the upper meadow and forest is also very sheltered and holds snow for a really long time. I really wouldn't be surprised to see it be July 15 ish this year.

    Since the Summer of 2016 it has varied from about June 21 (2019) one year to July 5 ish with a walk over some snow in the "couloir" doing the loop. Upper meadow is a giant pond/lake until mid July usually and people ride around it and braid the fuck outta the trail through there because they don't want to get their shoes wet.

    Rode some new to me trails at the main zones on I90 this past weekend. Some new favorites:

    - ET @ Tiger
    - Dog Wash @ Tokul

    Props to Evergreen for doing what they do best!

    First time at Tiger today (I know) and made a loop of Master Link, Quick Link, OTG, Fully Rigid, Joy Ride, and NW Timber. Fully Rigid made me quite the opposite. The dirt and weather were perfect though.

    Yea... pedaling out of tiger is meh.... if you have more juice left when you get to the bottom of OTG/NOTG you can climb back up the logging road / crosshaul to Inside Passage / East Bound and Down
