Evolution Bike Park Trail Report
UPDATED Thursday, August 10, 2017
This week crews have been working on the Peach Tree dual slalom course. This is a two person race course that is made up of berms, flat corners, grassy sections and a finish lane rhythm section. This new course design now begins below the Lower West Side Trail directly below the Peach Tree lift line. You can access from the base area by climbing up the Lower West Side Trail. The course can be lapped by riding/pushing back up the ski area access road adjacent to the track. Generally, this course is reserved for collegiate racing, however we are opening the course to public use for the remainder of this season. Much of this work has been done in preparation for the Gravity Slave Dual Slalom race hosted by CBMR on Saturday, August 26. Details about this event are on our website at skicb.com/gravityslave.
Trail crews will be heading to Primer next week to work on rerouting the straightaway section. This will improve not only the downhill MTB flow, but also make the climb a better experience on this multi-use section of trail. Primer will remain open during this construction process. Please be alert for trail crews doing work in this zone, this area will be posted with construction signage.
Bike Park riding conditions have been A+. A daily dose of rain and sun that has continued for weeks now has made the conditions excellent!

CBMR lifts will not spin if lightning is present in the area. As a reminder, the weather in Crested Butte can change very quickly. Always be prepared for changing weather conditions when enjoying the Gunnison Valley. Our experienced Mountain Operations staff considers safety a top priority. Lift closures can be common this time of year.
