Yep, I was going to say the same thing - unless he's Travis, Nicco or Gigi and then I'd shut up.
The kid fell on Westway, which has been mostly closed all season. Definitely "go west" if you're looking for less crowds.
I rode westway at the beginning of January... it was opened and all bumped up. I had fun up top where it was a bit softer, but it got real sketch halfway down and I had to take it pretty slow. I was exhausted afterwards.
