    New bike park

    Thge areas first lift assisted park will open this weekend. Ryan Taylor has put a lot of work into this place and all of us south east guys need to support this to keep it going. Hope to see some of you guys there this weekend.

    Heres a post from Ryan I got from another forum.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    26 West Trails:

    1. Village DH - Black Diamond
    2. Park Connector - Black Diamond
    3. Yo-B - Intermediate
    4. Bunny Slope - Beginner
    5. EZ Does It - Beginner
    6. Stilzation - Intermediate
    7. Facebrake - Double Black Diamond
    8. Super D - Intermediate

    Trail Descrips:
    1. Village DH - Fast. Starts with tight bench-cut; goes into tight woods; 3 wideopen tables 20'+ into S-turn; off-camber; off-camber to long table to fast woods finishing section. Doesn't touch the ski slope after leaving the tunnel. Cool.
    2. Park Connector - It will make you want to learn to ride like Gerritt. Swoopy and quick into corners and 25' road gap to g-force right hand berm to terrain park to fast run-in havin' 30+ road gap into woods into lift chair and repeat. Runon sentence.
    3. Yo-B - Good rock garden into mini "A-line". Read: mini.
    4. Bu...
    5. EZ Does It - 1993 nationals. Open slope with a little woods. Fun.
    6. Stilzation - Just like the man, one you wouldn't want to miss. Tight singletrack into step-downs onto slope and back into woods. He would rip it.
    7. Facebreak - Mach 5 into double to road gap to double to road gap into hip. Fast straight into sketchy corners into Pisgah singletrack. The second road gap steps down a bit like the race course step-down did last year. Big trees around, though.
    8. Super-D - Good momentum (ONCE IT PACKS AFTER IT IS RIDDEN A LOT) into steep, bloody-awful grunt of a minute or 9 climb. Dumps onto old road bed that has two big tables on it now. More to come in future for sure. Finishes with singletrack. Time-wise, longest run. Could be one of the top super-d courses in the area.

    Our web site should be live before the weekend.

    I have been working a good bit and am very excited to offer the park to the region. Guys and gals, if this park is a hit, we'll be riding 10, 11 or even 12 months a year in a very, very short time.

    For more information please call me on my cell phone:828-553-5856.

    Thanks and see you this weekend,
    Ryan

    I spent the day with Ryan,Sara and the Girlscout working at 26 west. We got some building done at the freeride park.. I also got a good look at a lot of other stuff there. This place is gonna be soooooooo much fun.It's going to cater to all riding levels.The freeride sectin will be great when it's done. I think we'll be working on a wall ride next weekend. I' got a birds eye view of the progress being made. There's still a lot of work to do but it's getting there. Here are some pics from today.

    Sara and the Girlscout check it out from above......


    Tables at the top of the DH course......


    The nice road gap on the main slope......


    My Xterra packing in the takeoff......


    Sara says the middle drop is just her size.....


    We got the drops pretty much wrapped up today....


    This place is gonna be an awesome playground for bikes.

    Possibly. We're getting back from Delaware on the 13th, but I'll haul my wanna-be Freerider tush down there if I can. The slopes don't look too rough. Do I bring my DJ bike or my trail bike? Both will be mediocre, but I'd like to give it a shot anyway.

    Also, I'm doing the road gap.

    Its not a really big place. Not near as spread out as Snowshow. The ride to the top on the lift is quick but you could get a ton of runs in. Right now it only has about 600 vertical feet of fall but when the lower section is done it will take it to 1100 feet. I could spend all day there and totally have a blast.

    Place looks great. I need to find something like that around here.

    Is this a ski resort in the winter?

    Yeah. But depending on the weather It could be open to bikes into December and open up as early as March.
