The real deal: Spirit Mountain Flow Trail 2012

Now we are talking

Braapp!
Ok.  Not my best photography by any means but I wanted to get this up sooner than later.  I will post better shots in the next few days...maybe even with riders in them!

In any case here are the numbers....13/4-2miles long.  Close to 700 vertical feet of drop.  40 plus berms.  Those are the stats on the new beginner flow trail that we are building at Spirit Mountain this week.  The build is a collaboration between IMBA, COGGS, IMBA Trail Solutions and Spirit Mountain.  It is also the stage for our IMBA Flow Trail School we are putting on this coming weekend!

To me this is the start of the off road paradise that COGGS and myself have been trying to launch for the past five years plus.  This trail will be lift served (you can climb back up if you want) and will be accessible to the masses.  The views and terrain are world class and the builder (Aaron Rogers) is too.  This Tuesday night there will be a showing of Strength in Numbers at Spirit, 7pm.  How cool is that?  To see one of the best trails in the region being built and then seeing one of the best films out there on the subject!
