Panoramaâ€™s Trail Crew Preps Bike Park For Opening
All winter we hope and pray for snow and last winter we certainly got it! The trail crew enjoyed riding the fresh snow…Now they are enjoying shoveling it away! The Trail Crew have pulled out all the stops to get the Bike Park ready and the recent rain means the trails are moist and tacky, ready for this weekend’s bonus early opening (June 25th and 26th).
Check out this video taken last week, when we caught up with the trail crew hard at work in Panoramaâ€™s Bike Park. Last fallâ€™s pine beetle logging has also allowed the crew to revamp existing trails with new fun flowy sections. With the official opening day on July 1st 2011, Canada Day, the park will no doubt be ready to kick-off a season of epic mountain biking.

If your design is chosen as the winner, our mountain crew will build it to full scale. Then on July 16th, 2011 youâ€™ll get to trial it first with Kootenay local bike legend Kurt Sorge. Plus youâ€™ll win a 4 night vacation at Panorama for you and 3 buddies!
