    excellent footage! That's what I love the most about riding, the big, fast, natural trails. None of this "who's got the biggest wooden drop and man-made berms" BS that it getting so popular. As bad as it is to get stuck behind somebody, like the squid with no pads and a T-shirt, it helps to show the steepness of the course.

    yeah, that rocky single track section, in the woods looks awesome.

    is this place open to the public, outside of races?

    if so, are there more trails?

    Thanks for posting and that HD cam is awesome.

    That squeeze through the rocks at 3:12 looks pretty tight, super-wide bars need not apply.

    Great looking course. Looks fast, sustained, and natural!

    its open and there are more trails but that run is probably the best. everything else is a little more xc oriented singletrack and fireroads.

    some good vids of skibowl popping up this summer! :thumb:

    Thanks DW, yeah I'm pretty psyched on the quality too.
    I think I'm gonna start fabricating a home made chesty mount for the race next weekend.

    You been able to ride much lately?
