Timberline Ski Area has started developing a proposal to build a mountain bike park to rival Whistler, reports The Oregonian.
“We need a world-class mountain bike park in the Pacific Northwest,” said Timberline spokesman Jon Tullis in the article, referring to the states of Oregon and Washington. “We’ve hired the consultants who built the park at Whistler.”
The “consultants” just happen to be Gravity Logic, the same company that built the park at Whistler, which is widely considered to be the standard for mountain bike parks.Â If approved, the new park would build trails in the Mount Hood National Forest and use the Timerline Lodge and Ski Area’s Jeff Flood Express chairlift to access downhill trails and skills park.Â Read the rest here.
If all goes well, dirt will start moving this Fall for an opening in Summer 2011.
