    Trails are looking awesome, Mike. We really want another shot at the mountain, we're hoping to get up there sometime in September, after labor day.

    Can't wait.

    DH Mike, you should really post on your website or the Facebook page when the races are to be canceled (i.e. the mini-dual last thursday). Kinda sucks to drive all the way out there to learn the race is not going to run because the course is not built!!

    My apologies on the ds course. My fault. We spread ourselves a little too thin and did too many trail improvements instead of finishing the ds course. I thought it was on, and Thursday just snuck up on us. Today was surprisingly slow? so we had a crew of 3 spend a 1/2 day on the ds course and it's approx. 1/3 finished.

    Mini Super D is on next Thursday as well as all of our Thursday mini series.

    Even the entrance into Trail # 24 Freedom has been smoothed out a bit:






    The Giant rental fleet:




    Peter adding proper drainage:


    Lots of work is hidden underground:


    This was the mess you used to jump over when you entered trail # 11. The water would constantly overflow, and would just run down the trail. Not anymore:


    Here's Peter testing out some of his work:

    Warning:

    Mueller has most likely built a secret trail somewhere at the resort by this time that not even you know about. He's that sneaky.
