Why is Mountain Biking Great for Skiing?
Because making the new DH trails at Timberline gets a trail crew up there to clean
out the glades
Check out the latest pictures JR posted on Timberline's new "Gladed" MTB DH Runs:
Looks nice. I'm hoping to get up there this coming weekend. Oh yeah, also hoping to hit those glades up this coming record-breaking snowfall ski season too.
MTB glade? Every rider picks his own line? I've never heard of anything like that before. It seems to run counter to a rule of low impact riding, stay on established trail. DHers wil invariably cut off switchbacks though, and a fall line trail will erode badly, so maybe this way is lower impact.
Looks like fun skiing. Won't need much base.
