    Definitely agree that it flows better.

    I think it was just the more enclosed nature of the track and steeper terrain in the trees below Merritt's left a feeling of there being less margin for error i.e. plenty to hit if you went over as opposed to flow trail where you just end up on grass in most places. I only rode it once as well so don't have a good feel for all the features yet.

    New tracks always take a couple of go's especially if they have a technical nature. Although on my first go I ran into one of the Dirt Art guys, and followed him. Which can be scary as they know it but you don't, and you end up going faster than you would have. Also I noticed this trip that wearing my full face changes my perspective. I rode in my open face last time, with no knee pads. If I wore the turtle suit as well, who knows, I might hit those features I ride past atm.

    On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays (have to ask if they do on w/e) they run a shuttle back at midday from Crackenback, so you can do the full 30k run from the top. $15 booking essential.

    Yep! Means you can ride your AM down! On an xc bike its a pretty good ride to start at Crackenback, ride up, have lunch, and hoot back. Most peeps take around 2hrs up, 1hr back.

    Welcome Finn. The old cranky's here will put you through a grilling. They can't help themselves. There is also a shitload of sarcasm! So grow a thick one very quickly. ;)

    Everybody here loves all ages and all forms of snow sports. :cheers:
