Saturday July 13th at 9am marks the highly anticipated Grand Re-Opening of Highland's Flagship trail NE Style. Get up to the mountain and enjoy yet another great Highland masterpiece!
The NE Style downhill mtb trail was the first machine built trail at Highland back in 2005 and is the park's most showcased trail as it weaves in and out under the chairlift. Several thousand man hours went into the makeover, adding a fully redesigned B-Line option trail; basically making NE Style 2 trails in one. The B-Line is designed by the Highland trail crew to allow riders to build up to the biggest features on the main line. Riders are able to pick and choose lines all the way down the mountain.
"Our goal was to bring NE Style back to its original glory and I think we've accomplished that" explains Tom Lepesqueur, head of the Highland Trail Crew.
NE Style is a black diamond machine built trail with 2 option lines filled with berms, dirt, wood features and more, including the signature feature "SkyBrow".
This trail overhaul will eventually run from top to bottom, but for now the trail crew has put the finishing touches on the top half of NE Style. Rain put a damper on our original day of shooting on Wednesday, but in Highland fashion the team stepped up and set out on Thursday morning determined to capture the crew as they reaped the benefits of their hard work with some maiden rides down the fresh trail.
