Just received some bad news: U-(

We regret to inform you that Diablo Freeride Park will not open this weekend as planned. Unfortunately we are faced with a minor permitting technicality that will not allow us to open. To dispel any rumors in advance, we WILL be opening next weekend, May 21st for the 2005 season and the first Domination race will be held as planned. Our staff has been working 7 days a week for several months to prepare for opening weekend and we are extremely disappointed to have to bring you this news.

Please help us to alleviate frustration by spreading the word to fellow riders that may not have the opportunity to see this message. Again, we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and we look forward to seeing you next weekend.

Shawn Orecchio
General Manager
Diablo Freeride Park

See everyone next weekend

west mountain

Opening weekend at West Mountain was a success, considering Plattekill had a race the same weekend turnout was good. ^:!!!

We arrived at West Mountain Sunday at 11am and began with a few warm-up runs that were quite challenging right from the beginning. The trails were clean, technical and there was a wide variety of terrain. From pine needle coated single track, to gnarly, scary rock shoots that brought you to mach speed in a split second. There were a few new trails that were not yet completely broken in, but soon will be. One of the new trails was our favorite, fast, narrow single track with good flow from top to bottom with an overhang drop to a nice transition onto the side of the ski slope.

I talked to the owner at West Mountain and from what I can gather he sounds pumped on building up the mountain to top caliber. West Mountain does have the capability of being a sick Mountain for Downhill and Freeriding and posses the best terrain I've seen anywhere on the east coast for a Mountain Cross and or Dual Slalom course. The owner is looking into building a Mountain Cross Course in the future in front of the lodge, if he were to do that it would have its own lift to the top of the course. Imagine that, we wouldn't have to walk our bikes to the top of the course like most other mountains. He is also looking to work on the existing trails to better the flow of the trails by adding berms in key locations! ;D

Here is a quick break down of DownCycles review of West Mountain:
