Over the weekend The T.O.D. crew headed to Brevard for a early season MTB meetup. What we didn’t know at the time, we were about to ride the most intense mountain bike loop in the Looking Glass area. The 16 mile loop has a 6,500ft elevation gain in just 2hrs followed by a hike bike descent that takes you through some of the most remote old growth forest in Western North Carolina. This ride was a beast of a climb, but the payoff was well worth the effort. We all managed to pull it off without any major mechanicals or injuries.
Beech Mountain Resort: Opening Day on the Slopes
This Saturday we opened the mountain for the 2011-2012 season. After temps in the 30s snow making and some natural snow allowed a great day of skiing and riding. The Ski Patrol started early preparing the slopes for a great start to the season with some of the best snow I have seen on the mountain. The crowd was full of stoked skiers and riders. The day was the perfect blue bird day on the snow.
Stay tuned for snow reports and resort updates!
See you on the slopes.
