I plan on riding at launch the 21,22,28 or 29, and so far no one is going with. I have two maybes. Just planning on watching the weather and my schedule as to which day I'm going to lock down on.

I'll def do that,sounds sweet to have a drop in the backyard. I found a drop along trail 8 I want to see if it is possable to do. Are you going to do the GES race at Launch in August?

I'm not good either,thats what beginner class is for. The course at Launch isn't bad I rode it last year on a hardtail. The rock drop is on the top part to the left of trail 1 or 2 whatever that is, you make a left turn then there is a straight away the rock is on the left about 4ft off the trail. I haven't looked at it close to see if it will work but riding by it looks good.

as of now, i am going. the weather looks great. before you go, you may want to call to see if the lift is fixed. It broke on saturday but they opened another one. it was on the front side of the mt but one of the Launch guys used his pickup to shuttle people to the new lift. it should be fixed but worth a call or email to verify.

yeah. rain is not a good thing there. Sunday is looking better. I am going to closely watch the radar and if that area looks dry, i will probably go both days. I haven't heard about the lift yet but either it will be fixed or they will shuttle you to the open one.

Just saw on Facebook that the lift is up and running. I'm going to go Sunday so it should be dry.
