    Got an email about it this morning, apparently the fine folks at Baldy & some volunteers built some berms and ladders down the "Gulch" between the Notch and the bottom of lift #2. They're running bikes on lift #2 from 12-3:30 this Saturday & Sunday, the email has a link to $18 lift tickets.

    Not much info on the site yet:

    Yeah it can't be more than 150 vertical feet (and they should really be building the terrain under lift #4), but it's a start. Anyone have any more details about this?

    Great to finally see some progress, hopefully they get a good turnout and lots of feedback!

    EDIT: Just found some info at MTBR: http://forums.mtbr.com/general-disc...s-mt-baldy-opening-up-mtb-weekend-793893.html
    And a report with photos: http://forums.mtbr.com/9395158-post8.html

    Theoretically the below link should go to the $18 "half-price" day ticket, but yesterday it had a cost of "$0" and today it has a cost of $45, so hopefully they get it corrected to $18 eventually.

    (No affiliation, I'd just like to see Baldy finally get a real bike park.)
