    Opening day is less than 2 weeks away and the ParkLogic Crew has had a busy week! While other resorts are just getting started, the dedicated ParkLogic Crew has been on the mountain for over 3 weeks and have already invested over 1,000 labor-hours and nearly 150 machine hours to improve the already extensive Diablo trail network!

    This past week we put the finishing touches on a new introductory level downhill run called "Greenhorn". We have revamped existing trails such as OTB and incorporated these lines with all-new trails to complete a near top-to-bottom run. Greenhorn is designed exclusively to help foster progression and provide novice level dh'ers with a well designed, low intimidation downhill run! In fact, we've gone the extra mile and engineered 'greenhorn' to be suitable for XC, AM and hardtails!

    This week we'll be installing some of the new slopestyle influenced ParkLogic boxes, some unigue ladder features, among many other improvements! Stay tuned, it only gets better from here!

    Greenhorn will feature low intimidates bridges, rollers and jumps perfect for gaining confidence to move up to Diablo's more challenging terrain!

    ...everywhere my son....

    But first, you must accept Gary Coleman as your personal savior.

    Only then can you find salvation... and know that it takes different strokes to move the world.

    I have not done any serious riding since Diabloween and even then i was more focus on taking pics of the DJ's than riding!

    So my first weekend @ Diablo should be a "painful one".

    Exactly. Thats the landing for a gap-to, 30foot ladder, kicker out feature designed by ParkLogic. Construction started in the jiblab about 10 minutes ago and should be in place for testing by the weekend.

    I need Pictures..... Video, something...

    Oh yeah.... 10 more days for Diablo Wide OPEN, see you there.

    Hey Diablo, quick question:

    Will parking be the same, i remember last year, Vernon Township had to get rir of the bridge that connected the Lot to the park (due to expansion of the street), will there be a connector bridge this season? Isthe parking right next to the Diablo Lodge still be open for us at no charge until the water park opens?

    Just curious!

    Thanks! Keep up the great Work!
    Thanks!

    Most mandrel/roll benders can only support square or round stock. I'm sure there is an attachment, but still, that's a lot of work for a bike stunt!

    I believe the answers are:

    A.) The bridge is there , but there is no ramp to the bridge, you have to push up the steps if you want to use the bridge.

    B.) You can use the front lot until the water park opens, except for the US Open when it's registered spaces only for teams & vendors.

    Of course you can bend tubing.

    The wheels you put on the machine for it are concaved for the specific diameter of tubing you are bending.

    Just to correct your number A, there is a ramp on the bridge, which is now a Z shape, biker friendly, no carrying up stairs.

    New walking bridge ramp thingy is up by those stairs now, so you don't have to bring the bike up the stairs.
