What We’re Doing

This build promises plenty of side slope! If you don’t know what that is, or would like to practice, please come along for this project! This is another basic trail building project. We may even throw in a surprise boardwalk at Walla Hi. We’ll have our fundamentals perfected by the end of the season, that’s for sure!
