    There's nothing better than sliding down snow... flying through the air.

    Holy shit. Hopefully they got it mopped up before this wind, and the rain actually comes through.

    Between the smoke and dust Utah County looked like Bladerunner this afternoon. It was pretty depressing after five days in Crested Butte's lush landscape and pristine air.

    Going to be in Park City for 2.5 days. What should we hit? Deere Valley Bike park worth it?

    Going to be the Wife and I, we are fit and able. One day we should have all day the other 1.5 will be shorter.

    I posted some good loops a few pages back. Some others: One day I would park at the canyons, ride the bike path to PCMR, up Armstrong to pine cone to the wasatch crest back down to the canyons, over Mid mountain to insurgent down. A classic with stellar views. Another would be Silver lake deer valley out mid mountain, up team big bear, up flagstaff to empire pass, 9k trail over to Black Forest, down that to mid mountain over to johns down to town. Lots of options. When are you coming?

    I hit Days Fork this am, 2 snow crossings, but other than that was GTG. Twin Lakes Pass was also clear.

    Since you've got a condo at the Canyons, its 100% worth it to do the Armstrong/pinecone/crest/canyons. Depending on fitness, it could be an all day ride, ends up around 4k ascent, and in the 20-30 mile rane. Download trailforks, everything is on there.

    Deer valley is fun for lift serve, lots of flow/jump trails and some good tech mixed in, I enjoy riding lifts there once every 2-3 years, since everything is pedal able from various areas in PC.

    Millcreek winter gate is open, and the dirt on Big Water trail up to Dog Lake is as good as it gets. 1 tree down in an obvious spot on a straightaway.Click image for larger version.

    Yup. Dirt is probably really good right now too.

    Park City is a huge overwhelming spiderweb to me on trail forks, but the ride above is definitely the one you should do if you can handle the climbing.

    Bit of a thread drift, but anyone have suggestions for rides in the Stanley area? I’ve done most of the rides around Ketchum but never made it up to Stanley. Looks like little/big casino is amazing but probably too much for the gf.

    haven't rode it personally but that ride that is like a 4-5 mile road climb than a singletrack descent seems really popular. Looks like it's called williams creek.

    Fisher/Williams creek loop is a great ride.

    Lots of other options but longer than fisher/Williams creek in the Stanley area. There are a few shorter rides but they seem pretty forgettable compared to the epic loops. Riding any part of redfish lake (loop or out n back) is cool as that lake is super beautiful.

    Galena summit is worth checking out. Lots of shorter loop options closer to Ketchum if you're in that area too.

    Love me some potato miles!

    Williams definitely looks like a good one. Have you ridden iron-lola?

    Sweet, I plugged that ride into the planning section on Trailforks so we have a good route to look back at. It looks like you can either Stay on the Crest or drop in to Mill Creek Meadows. Whats the preferred rout there?

    We did a ride last weekend with 3500' vert in 15 miles so we should be ready for it. The altitude and temps will be a bit higher though.

    Agreed on the overwhelming spiderweb....

    Thinking we will do the above ride on Saturday and maybe bike park on Sunday... Hoping everyone is hungover from the 4th.... We have time a 1-2 hour ride on Friday when we get in if anyone has any recommendations.

    1-2 hours, ride up jenni's trail, up tommy 2 steps, descend Mojave to CMG, fast and ripping, or if its not too hot, climb rosebuds haven to robs and descend ambush, or continue up ambush to mid mountain over to insurgent for some rowdy goodness.

    For the crest, you'll want to stay right at the millcreek meadows trail, on the crest. otherwise you'll end up with a little climbing (minimal) back up great western to get back to the canyons. Would be easy to not stop and end up bombing all the way to salt lake through Millcreek.

    Did the crest ride you suggested. Good ride for sure. Great views and good pitch to the climb. Red Coat - Insurgent - Ricochet was fun.

    Still thinking lift bumps to get the most in tomorrow. Any must hit trails over there?

    Observation: Some angry old white ladies around these parts....

    When I am taking kids down overt there, Tidal wave and undertow are the two flow / jump trails they gravitate towards. Other options that don’t take you back to a chair, Dark Forest, Rasberry, Evil Empire. If your looking for a fun two hours back to your Condo, traverse Mid mountain back to the canyons and loop in Iron Man. Everything is pretty crowded as it looks like a lot of tourists came in despite the parade and fire works being cancelled. Hope you're having fun. I hit the Armstrong Pine Cone Crest loop yesterday at 5:30 am and it was in pretty good shape. Not to much dust on top yet!

    DV has some old school DH trails and some new flow trails. Oddly things are divided lower mtn and upper by a small hill, so keep that in mind as it's not continuous top to bottom.

    Upper trails are great, Thieves Forest and Fire Swamp are old school techy. For jump lines warm up on Tidal Wave, if that is too easy go to Tsunami next. Lower mountain has the old National DH course, NCS, which is a full-face / pads run, and one flow trail called Undertow. Undertow is fun but not hard. I like Old School to Pointy Rocks lower mountian, devo is annoying.

    Canada1, wtf? Ha.

    Haven’t left the condo other than to ride or hike around with the kid and my sister who we are visiting. Thinking the resort might be more people than we want to deal with so maybe some pedaling again tomorrow. Drove through downtown out of curiosity last night... shit ton of people for sure.
