Damn. The only day my gf has me booked too. It's our town's community day and she volunteered me. If you come down again let me know. I'm up there almost every weekend.

I usually make a few trips there every summer. I'm at Burke every other weekend

Im pretty excited, just picked up a 2011 trek session 88 and a 2009 devinci Ollie from a bike shop manager in moab for $3000 total. Ive been looking for a specialized demo 8 or a session for a while now., they are all $2500-3000/ea. Cant wait for summer lifts to open here, winterpark and keystone.

Both bikes for $3k? That's a deal. I'm on an 08 Glory 00 right now. I'm thinking it's about time for an upgrade. Too many sick frames out there to choose from. You'll have to let me know what you think of the Session. Got my eye on the Santa Cruz V10 right now if I can snipe one for cheap.

There is a carbon v10 frame on back country for 40% off.... $2200.

My son will be riding the session. The devinci wants to go straight and fast downhill..... The session is more maneuverable. Just did one trail so far. The session is awesome and I can't believe the guy let it go for such a deal. Everything on it is upgraded to the highest end stuff possible. The devinci isn't too shabby either, lol

I should have thought to let you know that I would be there. I rode Sunday but it was my first trip since I tore my ACL last month. I was far from fast and I kept it mostly on cats Paw and Hellion because my knee didn't like the rooty rocky stuff.

Yeah I'm not fast on a good day. I'm still working on hitting all the tranny's on hellion. That trail beats the shit out of you after a few runs.

I rode all day Sat and by Sun I was spent. I headed up early Sunday morning and ended up going over the handlebars twice with a few other close calls just from being too tired to stay on point. I ended up calling it a day around noon-time before I killed myself. It would have def been a good day to keep it mellow and cruise the jump trails.
