Today's Mountain Report
Updated Thu Aug 17th 13:33
Today is Thursday and day one of four days of lift serve. The Burke Bike Park opens at 3pm with the Sherburne Express spinning until 7pm this evening. Twilight tickets are available for purchase in the rental igloo for just $20/adult and $15/junior.
ATTN Little Rippers! It's the last KT Kids Ride tonight and we are hosting. Parents can drop-off their juniors at 5:15 and kids should be ready to ride by 5:30. Riding the Burke Bike Park with the KT Kids ride is free to all Kingdom Trails members and Burke Bike Park passholders and just $5 for non-members/pass holders. Kids should bring their bike, helmet, water bottle and a trail snack.
The trail crew had some pretty stellar weather this week to tune the park spending a lot of time on Knightslayer. Riders will notice a berm rebuild and a new pro-lip on the tabletop after the wall ride on Knightslayer in addition to a new step-up in section 3 of Jester.
Temps will hover around the mid-sixty mark this afternoon with mainly sunny skies. The weekend forecast is calling for spotty showers throughout the weekend so we'll see what actually gets delivered.
NOTE: Summit shuttle will have revised hours this coming Saturday, 8/19 to accommodate a wedding at the pavilion. It will run 10:30-3pm and be closed for the remainder of the afternoon. Just the toll road will be closed from 3-5pm (i.e. no cars). Pedaling is OK and traffic will be allowed back up the road after 5pm.
