Trail Update!

As many of you know, early this spring we announced a significant expansion to our summer mountain biking, hiking and scenic chairlift operations for the summer 2011 season. Aside from running both the Silver Lake Express (from the Resort base) and Sterling Express chairlifts (from mid-mountain) we are also running the Ruby Express chairlift from the Empire Canyon Lodge area. This expansion includes a new trail,“The Road to Ruby,” a three- to four-mile connecting trail from Bald Mountain to the Flagstaff Mountain area and a new intermediate trail system in the Flagstaff Mountain area.

However, the abundent snowfall and wet May and June delayed our trail building process! Now, the trails are well underway and here is an update with Chris Erikkla, Bike Patrol Supervisor:

Has anyone been out on the new trail system yet? If not, see the video below for a guide to Tour des Suds with Chris Erikkla. This trail has been expanded across Flagstaff Mountain to now access Ruby Express Chairlift.
