So, Techno Rock, Richter, and the Twilight Zone are finally approved and set to open this July! The Mammoth Mountain Website says this about the new trails:
"Opening July 2007 - Techno Rock: a fast, technical expert-only trail from McCoy Station to the Main Lodge. With BIG rock drops and banked turns in the Super Pipe Techno Rock is a dirt-jumping run to the bottom.
Opening July 2007 - Richter: a fast, upper-intermediate to advanced, tree-lined roller coaster ride off Kamikaze and Trail Home. Ladders, wooden bridges and plenty of berms. This trail completes the freeride path from the top of the mountain to the bottom.
Opening July 2007 - Twilight Zone: this urban-inspired trail will become our "signature." Hang a quick right halfway down Chain Smoke and get ready to accelerate through a series of linked wooden berms, through the Snake, and end in the heart-pounding "deep-end": a 32-foot wide, 10-foot tall, 180 degree banked turn.
Kamikaze Park is a place to have fun and test your skills on man-made features. Located near the lower Panorama Gondola Station. Find urban-inspired features including dirt jumps, wall ride, teeter totter, features from the Unbound ski and snowboard Terrain Parks and larger features - look for the 90-foot Dragon and the Volcano!"
