Mountain Bike Park Update

Bike Park Director, Hogan Koesis, gives a fall mountain bike update:

Natural Drop
For the first time ever, a machine will be at Pajarito from yesterday, through October 20.
Dante and Jackie owner’s of Harmony Wolrd Wide LLC have been contracted to perform trail maintenance and enhancement for the following:
  1. Enhance Aspen for Trouble all the way down to the Chupacabra trail.  Enhancements will include trail widening, jump enhancement and corridor cleaning (cutting back deadfall).
  2. Enhance Aspenola trail for a more beginner friendly and smoother experience.  They will be focusing on water erosion and enhancing turns and merges on this trail.  Ultimately this trail is the closest thing to a beginner trail, and we want to make it work with the bike program in the spring.  Working on this trail will give us a head start for next season as it pertains to quality offerings.
  3. Enhance a lot of the drop landings.  Pajarito was hand built and needs some proper landings on a lot of the drops.  We are going to start at the base area with Mother’s Milk, Natural Selection, Red Dog and Dog Patch.  These trails all feed into the base area and we are going to work our way up by increasing the landing sizes on the drops and do some needed work in shoring up some of the bridges and water issues facing these existing trails.

Neal Pederson leading the pack

Rome wasn’t built in a day, but we are super stoked to get out there and give it everything we have.  We are looking forward to feedback from the local riders as well as from people who have never been there before.

Team Harmony will also be developing a sign program and giving critical feedback as it pertains to increased lift hours, increased terrain and trails as well as what’s needed to take Pajarito to the next level!
