    Big extended weekend of riding for me. Logged some big climbs in Lincoln, got 2 phenomenal days at Kingdom Trails, hit up Loon's new DH trails, and did a trail clearing day on my local trails. Trying to pack it all in before some of these trails get shutdown for the winter.

    I think a LOT of the BW crowd are people without passes. They have done a great job increasing traffic with their "seasonal rental program" with local ski shops. Kids rent skis for the season (<$150) and it comes with a free BW pass. Parents then do trips up there a few weekends/year. Based on the crowds there on the weekends and holiday weeks, I don't see there being an incentive to participate in a bigger collective. My family does the WMSP because we have a place in Lisbon and Cannon conditions can sometimes suck (ice, wind, etc), so having BW as an option is worth the extra $300. I also suck in the trees so I like the BW glades ☺️

    Finally got a chance to heck out Loon's new lift-served DH trails this weekend. This was my first time doing any lift-served so I can't really give a comparison to other places. But I can say that it was an absolute blast! They really only have 3 trails so far and they are all considered to be on the beginner side. 1) Mainline is rated as a straight up beginner trail. It has wide sweeping turns and nice rollers. 2) Bandit is rated as a beginner with some technical features. This really only consists of a few rocky sections thrown in and much tighter banked turns than Mainline. 3) Steampunk is a blue trail with 'technical features'. This means it has a few more rocky sections, some jumpable features off to the sides, a few gapable rollers, and deep tight banked turns. None of the trails have any mandatory drops or major challenges. This sets them up perfectly to just bomb! The trails are incredibly well built, with berms at just right the pitch, angles, and traction to fly through. Loon itself was completely mobbed with people for their Oktoberfest party. The parking lot was as full as any Saturday during the ski season. But there was almost nobody on the bike trials. I never waited in line to get on the lift. And I only caught up to 2 or 3 groups on the trails. All of which were quick to let me pass with a smile. I imagine it will eventually turn into the standard Loon shitshow once it gets built out. For now though it's really sweet. I only wish they were open for a few more weeks. Only stopped once for pics....

    Last weekend I earned the "Completionist" badge in Trailforks for Leominster State Forest and was the first to do so! https://www.trailforks.com/badges/view/33553/ Wasn't too bad, but had to do a couple less than ideal rides. Trailforks is also very picky. You need to ride every last foot of a trail.
