Is $32 really the price? That's a little steep for what they have and people will definitely bitch about it. I would still pay it though and if other people do, Stevens will be able to keep growing. I'm happy I don't have to pay it though.

I believe they will be open Fri-Sun as stated above.

I am eager to hear some reviews of the place. I am wondering how tough that single track is...

Heh

BlackeyeII and angrychicken, Stevens pass offered a buy in last year that got you a season pass for the next 4-5 years. They uses it for seed money for the trails. What I understand is that they lost the commitment from the winter side of the resort and had to come up with the money on their own.

The single track was pretty fun. Ive been used to the super buffed out tracks at Duthie. So it was a pretty rough and loose trail for me. I started to feel comfortable by my third round. It was also a lot longer descent than im uses to so I quickly ran out of gas. Still a blast and why im willing to throw the cost of a lift ticket at it.

Oh, it was also super muddy. That made it more interesting and more difficult. Search around YouTube for videos. You'll see one day of dry track, and another of soupy conditions.

Yeah, that's sorta what I thought and why I asked if he got in on that pass deal. I looked at it, but T-Line was scheduled to open this summer. I figured I'll be more likely to hit Hood instead with it only being 1/2 hour further for me.
On that note, looks like they are delaying things up a bit at hood .

Road Duthie today for about 5 hours with a buddie, I'm beat. Brought my SS DJ and my squishy and had a blast.
Legs went to jello towards the end and I went down a little hard on Semper Dirticus so I called it day.
You Seattle cats are most fortunate to have that place.

Don't pass out on the drive back! I've done day trips from Bellingham, but from down here that's a looooong day.

Did that today. Dirt merchants open and it has a sweet new rock drop.

It is very very nice, although I am not a free rider or DJ master. We love Ryans Run though and Too High, but that is about the extent of my quest for big air these days.

I do really like the new black diamond off shoot on Boot Camp that has all those wooden roller coaster constructs. That and the new finish for Ryans run are probably my favorite parts.

We are building up the courage to try HLC next. It just doesn't look bad at all.

The old drop in entrance feature required quite a bit more commitment than the modified one that exists today.

I'm pretty weksos when it comes to jumps/drops myself.
I prob had the most fun yesterday on ac/dc and riding my DJ on Deuces Wild. I just really liked the flow.

While we road Duthie, some other cats I know hit up Oregon.

That trail looks pretty fun.

If you want something a little more mellow that bridges the gap between 2hi and hlc, check out the new voodoo child line. It starts up by the big step up jump and where the DWB and Semper Dirticus lines start. The one with 3 drop options to start. The drops set you up really nicely for the HLC gateway feature. Then there's a few step ups and some tables to round it out.

What line is AC/DC? the new dual slalom that starts next to 2hi?

Word. Nice berms, some reverse wedges/tables with blind landings but they are totally rollable but you can just boost em without fear of casing it.

For sure. I think there are 2-3 blind hits that weirded me out (I like to see my landings), but they they are set up so nice that you can just sort of let it go.
Have fun and shred it man.

Default random thoughts

Is anyone else considering a jump to the dark side?

I was looking at new mountain bikes (mainly the Slayer 70), as both myself and one of my long time riding buddies were in the market, then he went a very different route.

He bought a dual sport trail bike. Kawasaki KLX250S

He said the cost was actually pretty close to the mountain bike he was looking at. (He was fond of the MojoHD)

This has me doing some research on what kind of trails there are out there for dual sport/MX riding.

If there are some good trails out there I am going to seriously consider getting a dual sport to go explore a bit.

In looking at what a bike like that comes with it just seems rediculous that we pay what we do for mountain bikes. I get it, pay for the light weight and all, but sheesh...

I am wondering if everything will feel like good flow when you have a 250cc engine driving you. Flow up hill... flow down hill... 10/9 inches of travel

I would say more expensive to maintain, but I am not convinced. I spend a decent amount replacing chains/cables/cassettes/etc on my four mountain bikes.

I grew up riding/racing motocross and in college sold my bike to fund a legit mountain bike. I think our area is great for dual sport riding etc but don't kid yourself into thinking it will be less expensive. My opinion, from experience, is that you will have way more invested in dirt bikes all said and done compared to nearly any form of biking. And remember, you don't have to get the highest end and most expensive in any hobby to enjoy it.

I think it was Eddy Mercks or something like that who said, "don't buy upgrades, ride up grades"

Motorcycle vs. mountain bike? I don't even see them as comparable.

I love mountain biking for the peace and quiet, scenery and exercise. You want a nice bike? Just like it is for almost anything else, you gotta pay to play.

Getting a motobike hasn't crossed my mind, but wondering why a bike costs as much as one has...

The beauty of biking is the versatility. Wether I'm meeting someone new on the lift ride to the top of Whistler, pedaling thru a forest or rolling the bike out of the garage to work on manuals on the driveway. A motobike seems more deliberate in where and when you can ride it.

I bet the opposite is more true, moto dudes coming over to mountainbiking. A lot of the top World Cup guys have that history.

Been slowly getting Rhett into shape and giving him time to learn how to "ride" trails. Today he managed a 8 mile loop at a slow pace.
