Timberline's park crew has really excelled this year.

Temps have been in the 50s and 60s and its supposed to be a little cooler this week but warmer this weekend. Do not ride in a t shirt, snow burn is no fun! Also be prepared to wax every day you ride.

The snow burn is serious business, I think luckily I rode with a LS T-shirt last time, but I remember my face getting fried since I didn't use sunscreen. Getting stoked to go myself, I think I'll be out there mid-July.

Not only because of sunburn, but the snow is so abrasive it will scar you for life when you fall.

Ain't that the truth. I rode Crystal a few weeks ago on a fresh wax and ended the day with a completely bare base!
