They've already made real headway with the trail construction, it's really going to be great. Plus when you add the 30 miles of single track right around the mountain in Charlemont and another 20-30 up the road in Hawley, B'East will be one heck of a mountain bike destination.

Opening for year 2 scheduled for April 23rd. Gravity Logic rolled back into town this week. Thunder Mountain Bike Park, and the surrounding XC trails network is soon to be the best ride destination in the East.

Did they change the method to load bikes on the lift? I seemed to be the "lucky" one loading my bike on the middle slot each time.

I'll be getting down there at least once this season. I'm really looking forward to it!

I'm curious how the bikes are loaded, and what the issues were?

Roll on trays, like many other places. It's not hard.

Looks nice. I just got my first MTB in 20 years.... looking forward to getting back into it.

I think MTB can improve the skiing, as well, as it gives a few clear lines through the woods (Platty).
