May 18th Teton Dirt Report
May 18, 2020 Trail UPDATE
Week # 3 of the MBT Trail Crew Season. Working on a new pump track and few more dry trails.
It’s beginning to feel a lot more like summer these days. If you’re still feeling a bit isolated, just jet to the trails and keep your head up for your fellow riders, as dirt church sermons were held all around the valley this weekend. We want to thank everyone for their patience as the singletrack continues to show its beautiful, dirty self. Please remember to share trail reports or work of your own so that we can relay to the people!

May 18th Dry Trails Report
This past week, the crew has been working hard on building a new kid’s pump track in Jackson Hole and are anxious to bring this project to completion. It needs a few more days to set up properly but will be rideable really soon. In the meantime, we’re excited to begin maintenance and trail building in Teton Valley. Here’s the breakdown of the crew’s week:
● Monday, in further preparation for building the pump track, with a rented mini-excavator and skid steer, the crew, along with Friends of Pathways’ Chris Owen, excavated organic material within the track layout to begin grading the site.
● Tuesday, dirt was delivered to the site and was distributed to grade the loop. Began building and shaping. Big shout out to Gabe Klamer and the folks at Ridgeline Excavation of their generous contribution to the site!
● Wednesday, Alec and Chris split for the day. While Alec continued on the pump track build-out (packing and shaping berms), Chris spent the day in the woods of Southern Valley with Scott Bossell and Kevin Frasier of the Teton Basin Ranger District and TVTAP’s Nick Beatty, planning trail alignment for the new “Hillside” trail.
● Thursday, the crew was back in Jackson working on the pump track. With rollers and berms placed and packed, more shaping was completed. As the dirt was holding significant moisture, the track needed to dry out. The crew will be back Monday to finish out the project.
● The weekend was spent riding bikes, scouting and updating trail conditions.
