    This morning I walked the under construction section of Lower Trail 2. That is the trail number designated on the planning map. We will come up with a cool trail name by Summer 2020.  The IMBA and A-Basin crews have built some sweet turns and have done some very nice rock armoring. This trail is designed for downhill mountain biking. Right now, construction is moving downhill and is just crossing Black Mountain Express lift line near Tower 3. Below that, the future trail crosses Lower, Lower Standard, Slalom Stadium and Bear Trap before making a few switchbacks in The Glen (between Pali Wog and The Rock Garden) where it starts heading back to the Base Area. It will be a fun, rolling, exciting ride.

    I was out on the East Wall this morning wandering around the tundra patches and talus fields. Several trail crews members and I were doing the final design on our trail that accesses the via ferrata. It was a great morning out there. Mountain goats were wandering around Lenawee Face. There wasn't a cloud in the sky. We are excited to share this Summer adventure zone with folks next year.

    Today, 458 runners took on the Discrete Cirque Series at Arapahoe Basin. As usual, Mother Nature threw out a mixed bag of rain, sunny skies and everything in between. Athletes started in the base area and worked their way to the summit of Little Lenawee Peak and then back to the bottom. Joe Gray tore up the course making it up and down in 50 minutes.
