Words of advice
Last but not least; lots of people crack themselves up early in the season. Don’t be one of them! We asked instructors, trail crew and patrollers for some words of wisdom. Here’s their advice.
From Seb Bunney who’s instructed at the Bike Park for the last two years – “Keep your pedals level” & “Don’t make A-line your first (and likely your last) run ever”
Shawn Beaudoin is an 11 year veteran of the Bike Park who began patrolling even before B-Line was created; “Take a warm up run” & “Check your bolts and your bikes after a few runs. The Park is hard on bikes”.
Dom Balik has patrolled at the Bike Park for 9 years. His words of advice: “Progression in the park takes time. Take it easy if you’re not feeling it, it is a long season – we want you to stick around – not be stuck to the ground”
From Trevor Berg who’s been trail crew for the last three years: “Progression is key – start small and build from there”
