    My sources say yes, 10 or 12 until 6 on Friday.

    I assume my sources to be reliable.

    Will the lifts be running on Friday, or will it be shuttles?

    Lifts... the WT lift runs every day of WT operations and the shuttle bus only comes out for transport during weather holds (electrical storms) when the lift has to shut down. The lift also runs quicker on race weekends (and any busy days) which cuts the lift ride to 10 minutes.

    Had planned to make a weekend of riding Saturday and racing Sunday. Assuming the lifts will run Sunday as well now that the race is Saturday?

    1/4 of the Dirt Passion crew will be there for race coverage. Not sure if my wife is racing or doing the Women's Camp. She's undecided at the moment.

    Anyone know what the race course is going to be? My Fiance is trying to decide if she wants to race or do the womens camp as well.

    The race course this Saturday will be Upper Hareball to lower Pro DH. Depending on the weather, we'll have a course preview video available on Wednesday or Thursday. The women's camp group is still small so it should be a great opportunity for any women to get lots of one on one focus to really take their riding up a few notches.

    Cheers...

    I am planning on shooting Friday and Sat. I am actually hoping for a clear day as with the lifts being open late on Friday, afternoon light ROCKS!

    Ya'll should know me by now, so don't be afraid to say Hi.

    Also, I am planning on riding on Sunday myself, if anyone is able to snap of photo of the photog, I would be indebted.

    I don't know what you look like, but I will be riding all three days.

    I am no pro photographer, but if you want someone to get a few shots for you I'd be more than happy.

    Red Shorts, Leatt brace, on a raw tr450. Will be riding with a guy on a green 951, and my girl on a white big hit.

    Unfortunately the Saturday race day and my fork being destroyed are keeping me at home this weekend (although normally I'd go to a Saturday race). Wish I could make the shoe again this summer though.

    You can't miss me. Shooting I will have a bright POC jersey on and everybody's been calling me a hippy with the length of my hair. 6'4" glasses, facial hair.

    I'll look for you guys Fri and Sat. Thanks!

    What's the name of the guy on the green 951? Was he wearing a Mirage TLD Kit?
