Trailside Park-Rip it!

So, Park City, Snyderville Basin, Bob Radke, Progressive Trail Design and so many others have gotten together to create a mini ripper park at Trailside.

There's a kids/beginners course which features smaller moves and a smaller grunt for little folks:

And even littler folks:

The real action is on the mile-long skills trail, a downhill, but pedally collection of jumps and berms.  There were many attempts at sending, even though the course was a bit slow/flat and smallish.  The big wooden bank got everybody's attention. Tyson sending it:

Fahzure had to get some too! Send it!

Most impressive, though, was this gal who ripped it all day long.

You heard it here: This type of  park is the future of the sport. Proof.

On the way home I ran into this guy:

Cyclists are not impressed.
