Super Sketchy Sloppy Seconds at Snowshoe

Friday morning, despite a rainy forecast, Adam and I headed up to Snowshoe Mountain Bike Park. Conditions were grim, fog, rain, and a rainy forecast all day. We got to the mountain and decided to test the trails, and the first adjective that came to mind "Super Sketchy Sloppy Seconds." ( For those who hang around me long enough will inevitably come across the alliteration that sometimes spews from my mouth, known as Levisms). After our first run we met a couple from Louisville (Matt and Tamara) that were stoked to be on the mountain. They were pretty much locals, and Tamara ended up being our "guide" for the rest of the day. We embraced the mud, sessioned some trails, and made some new friends along the way.

We managed to fit 3 bikes into the back of the Element

Already covered in mud after the first run.

My goggles were useless after the 2nd run

The Dirt Bean in Marlington, an excellent place to catch some dinner on the way home.

I should have took some photos of Tamara ripping the trails. We talked about putting together a bike jam after the freeride park is finished. Tamara said she could pull together a group of women from the freeride community to attend, which would be awesome.
