Yeah man at this stage im looking at bringing it forward to this sunday, going to add some wooden runners acroos the face of the landing to aid in drainage so we will need lots of digging to fill the gaps, so if your keen .....bottom gate 8am sunday

by landing pads i assume you mean of the step down???????

Awesome effort by the boys today, got the landing part finished as per photo, still needs more dirt packed into the face and will build an exit berm at the very bottom, bypass line will come down the right hands side of the stepdown and will consist jumps into the line and a switchback at the very top....

new entries into the stepdown will be wooden and there are going to be 2 entries, one of the same size gap as it is now and one bigger one aswell......
project is coming along nicely

:thumbsup: :thumbsup:

photo pre the build today, rutted as pretty ngarly for riding down, let alone landing

Part way thru the finished landing, wood is for tracking the water across the face rather than down

also had a run on the new entry for the top of Taniwha and its feeling very smooth indeed, drop is mint and the swoop into the berm is awesome at speed, will concentrate on building the wooden drop for the right hand side one into the berm next week (let the dirt on the stepdown settle for a bit).....

be aware that the Taniwha trail has been sprayed today
