September 25-27 -- Lake Tahoe and Downieville, California
Friday - Sept. 25th, 2009
Friday we return to the famous Northstar Ski Resort and Mountain Bike Park, with its gondola and high-speed quad ski lifts and many black-diamond trails. Easier trails too; there's something there for everybody.
On Friday afternoon at 2:00, Cody Williams will be hosting/organizing a Trials event at the Big Springs (mid-mountain) area, which is near the top of the gondola. This event will be open to bikes as well as unicycles, and Cody will be joined by some local Bike Trials enthusiasts. But they will still need your help, if interested, in setting up the Trials lines on existing terrain (possibly including what you see above). The event will use a modified set of rules.
Northstar is located in Truckee on Highway 267, just a few miles from the Johnson home and right down the street from the first rental cabin. Your $34 lift ticket is good for unlimited rides back up. They run a gondola and two different lifts during the summer. The new lift leads to three new double-black diamond trails, which will probably be the focal point for riders who have been to Northstar before.
Northstar Ski Resort:
The lifts run until 5:00 pm That's plenty of time to ride, and either watch or participate in the Trials event.
Lunch: Bring your own or Dine at Northstar
