New top section now open. Still a little rough as more work required but alas the sun is shining too much to dig.

 Trail extends up to trail hub. Section at top is very boggy (5metres or so). New start planned to bypass.

 New top section working well. More development to come over the winter.

Dual Slalom now open. Again, lots of work to be done over the build season but it's already fun. Both lines start from hub, - left uses Mainline start, right uses Scratchy start.
