    It is the same creek connected to the same mine that polluted the Animas river a few years ago.

    Sort of... Lots of private property, too much elevation gain, high elevation, mountains too steep. Don't get me wrong, I'm in, you're in, lots of people reading this thread are in, but for an average rider, Silverton riding will always be above their pay grade.

    And yeah, I know - Bender did some work up there a long time ago... was probably a bit too early at that point.
    Well it was Silverton the town this time, not the resort. On Boulder mountain to the west of town. Mostly if not all climbing trails, donít think anything shuttleable. We will see, IMBA was instrumental in the design and approval process so it has potential to ummm go either way. Iím hoping it turns out pretty rad.

    i guess Penitente is too sleepy. that is a bummer. Almost as bad as Calvillo's closing a few years ago. DTM was complaining about people riding with head phones. I spend most of my time riding around Del Norte so had no idea why this was an issue. Than I went to Moab on a weekend and got it. I guess you can define sleepy as a place where you can ride any direction with your tunes on. With the Pronghorn trails and the new work being done at Stone Quarry , and Frisco CK Del Norte has some solid options other than Penitente.

    Yeah - I was referring to the Silverton area in general... so much potential.

    Welcome to the San Juans.

    I was there that September on my birthday but we got snowed out from riding. I watched Bender hit some of those sketchy jumps when we first got there though. There was a whole lotta jank going on for sure. He was a really nice guy and got us blunted for my B-day back at their employee housing.

    It's a short season for biking there I imagine.

    yeah, most of the creeks up there are like that, unfortunately.

    Just found out about this place in Heise, 30-40 minutes from Teton Valley. Bike park, camping, nearby golf, fishing, hot springs...might have to check it out this summer! http://7nranch.com/index.html
    Something about the wrinkle in your forehead tells me there's a fit about to get thrown
    And I never hear a single word you say when you tell me not to have my fun
    It's the same old shit that I ain't gonna take off anyone.
    and I never had a shortage of people tryin' to warn me about the dangers I pose to myself.

    That picture almost looks photoshopped. Flat inrun to massive gap step up? Where's he landing, the back of the truck?
    If you want me to take a dump in a box and mark it tubeless, I will. I got spare time.

    Check the OP's post jong!

    Rode Copper City, Helena, and Lewis and Clark Caverns this weekend. Very impressed with Copper City, nice job SWIMBA. Well worth a stop if you're cruising I-90 through Montana.

    You guys ever heard of this town called Whistler it's in British Columbia, Canada? Not really on the mtb map/scene yet. Some trails and a bike park. Has potential.

    Might have to make a Copper City stop on the way through this weekend. Hiked Lewis and Clark Caverns ages ago when I was still a kid on training wheels, need to get back and ride there.


    And 7N just keeps growing on me. Maybe the best place I've ever ridden to have a bike demo? The laps are so quick but have such nice, varied terrain that you can get a feel for new bike's strengths and weaknesses really quickly, and then cycle through a bunch of bikes back to back to compare them on exactly the same lap.

    Kidding! Butte and Helena areas though, for real.
    No longer stuck.
