Those who "follow" me on here know that every now and again I like to call out folks who I think highly of.
This is going to be one of those times.
See, mountain biking is new to @montsutton . When I first started working here, bike was a bit of a four letter word around the ski resort... So today, as I was proudly taking pictures of the ops crew lead by the sometimes mercurial Luc, watching them put their sweat, heart and souls into not just making a berm, but making the PERFECT berm for our brand new Mont Sutton @scottsportscanada Bike Park, I was so incredibly proud to be part of this amazing group of old (and not so old) dogs not only learning new tricks but applying their deep and amazing mountain knowledge to this sport.
So I told Luc "Dude, your berm is perfect" and he replied curtly don't exaggerate" (the guy can be quite the charmer sometimes)". Little does he know that I'm somewhat of a mountain bike Jedi (at least I like to think I am) and trust me, I know berms. If this was his first berm. Watch out Whistler, we're going to be a force to be reckoned with. The next one he builds is going to be epic.
Today was a good day. The other Luc came in like the cavalry to save the day, Brandon as per usual worked his butt off, Dakota got us the rest of our features from François and Marc-André, Luc, Lily and I (with the invaluable help of "crash-test" Zoe) finalized the Bike Park layout at the end of the day.
I sure hope you can drop by Saturday for the big reveal, we're so very excited to show you what amazing work we accomplished in just ten days. TEN DAYS!!! #bikepark #bikefun #berm #trailbuilders #sutton #montsutton #skiresort #purementsutton #bike
