Has anyone ridden these?

I’d put the odds at 50/50 that these berms are awkward, slow, or generally ride like shit. I’ve never ridden them so I don’t know if they suck, but there are some big red flags:

  • Not built by motos or as natural ruts
  • On the East Coast
  • Probably built by stoked mountain bikers
  • In bounds at an American chairlift-accessed resort
  • They seem to do everything other than go down the fall line
  • Super tall early on where you don’t need berm, less tall later on when you do
  • Looks like builder was focused on symmetry and aesthetics, aka not focused on ride quality

 

Nonetheless Dave, great picture. I like the fall colors.

  1. I had the same thought ! People rave about Burke tho. I can’t imagine it sucks that badly. Berms instead of fall line, seems like a no-no to me.

  2. SKILLZ WHIF PHIL SAID “WHOA GUYS” LIKE WHEN THEY TELL U ITS GUNNA B SWEET BUT U ALMOS DIED

  3. Can Confirm they are indeed awkward(atleast for me) – but the rest of the park has multiple examples at the other end of the Bad/Good Berm Spectrum

  4. They’re ok, not super amaze-balls but they work. There’s an uphill rhythm section you need to triple to ride them at any real speed, but you slow up no matter what you try. Rest of the bike park is fun, not a destination by itself though. Gotta get up high on the mountain to find the fun trails.
