    I emailed the events cordinator waiting to here back. Guessing she works Thu thru Sunday. Looking for a group discount. There is a bike swapmeet that day along with local brewers on site.
    Also planning Exploration shuttle run before or after.

    Because of the long drives we will hit Exploration afterwards. It's a 15 min drive and will take about 1:15 To complete including self shuttling for all that are game.

    She emailed me back. If we buy 10 or more passes in a single purchase online we will receive a 10% discount. Otherwise each of you should buy your tickets online which are 39 as opposed to 45 at the door. 10% of of 39.00 I believe is the group deal.

    Not in for this one, although I was on the high maybe list. Then I realized my wife is flying to Kentucky on Friday the 15th. Pretty sure I shouldn't leave my 8 yo at home, and pretty sure she's not ready for Skypark. Maybe next year.

    She will enjoy it. We have brought many non Mountain bikers there and they all enjoyed it and have gone back. There is trails for everyone.

    Anyone else contemplating bringing their spouse/children for wholesome family fun? Mini Her-zalot could come and make a friend if so...

    Hmmmmm.... Y'now what, if she likes her new bike this weekend, she just might be into a trip up there. She likes climbing walls, ziplines and bungee stuff even if she doesn't want to get rad in the bike park. I think she would dig it. Of course, I can't ditch her to go do my thing but who cares?

    She will love the place and could probably ride 2 of the trails if she can climb the .5miles to the top.

    Even if she can't make the climb there are trails in the flats around the fishing hole.
    When I was there last I saw a mom with her 2 daughters probably 7 and 10 riding around the lower parts of the park.

    Haven't considered this until now as my experience has convinced me bike parks aren't really my thing. I don't jump and that is what bike parks are usually about.
    Mr Pool makes this sounds pretty good though....hhmmm...

    If all you've ever been to is Snow Summit, I agree with that sentiment. But Mammoth and Skypark have good trails that dont require jumping skills, but have flow or chunk if that is what you're into. Snow Summit is not that great of Park when you compare it to the rest.

    Ok all who are going. If we get 10 of you to buy tickets together online you will save about 4 bucks each. Not worth the effort but if 4 bucks hurts then get after it. Otherwise purchase your tickets online(cheaper if you do) and fill out the waiver and save some time upon arrival. There is a 10 parking fee you will pay upon checkin. I will cover the 1st 5 cars. Carpool if possible.
