I just spoke to one of the organizers for the Jamaica Fat Tire Festival, an organization that I had a lot to do with in its formation. This year the festival will be held from Feb 6-11. You can go to www.smorba.com
to get additional info.
The exciting news is that we will probably get 1 day to ride some private trails located in the Blue Mtns. The trails are owned by a wealthy individual who I have been sworn to never divulge. There are private cabins and a heli pad already built for his and his guests use.
The trails completed so far is 4 miles of DH that drop about 2,500 feet. It has ramps, wall rides and from what I hear .....incredible. I have photos that were taken about a year ago and will post if I can figure out how to transfer them from Facebook. Yes, ther are also XC trails.
The wesite will not have any info about the Blue Mtn Ride because it is such a new development. The trailhead starts at about 5,000 ft elevation and lots of it above tree line.
If you are interested, drop me a PM. Jamaica is about 1 1/2 hours away and the event will be unlike any other Fat Tire Festival you have been to.
