Trail was in great shape. Was a great trail for a newbie to mountain biking. Help build some confidence before trying the other trails.

 This is more of an access road then a trail. So sad Big White could not make a fun descent for beginners. Loose shale.Long and boring.

 Bumble Bee is set to get a refresh. It is currently a mixed use hiking/biking trail. We opted to open and allow biking on this trail to give beginners another option while we work on further trail development.

 I’ve been re-riding Bumblebee every week and every week it gets a bit better, the work being done on it is awesome. I can ride it with my wife who is a total beginner and she has a good time and i can ride the dad lines and side hits and enjoy myself. Cant wait to see what they have in mind for the rest of the trail. Totally worth the short pedal at the end.

 The trail is getting better, the areas that they have worked on are great beginner trail with some fun little jumps, bumps and corners. A lot of the tricky shale is gone making it safer than it was last year. Looking forward to seeing it once it’s finished.

 Nicely updated features, with heavy equipment trailside carving new trails/tracks on the bottom section, thanks BW!

 Thanks... Some more to come still to help eliminate the climb out of the Powder Chair... still a little uphill before the village but I was super stoked to see the process that Cabin Forestry had made in the last few weeks!

 The new bottom section dramatically improves the trail. Still a few soft spots from the new construction but what a great way to finish to the ride!
