I think ive done the tip track 3 times up in my whole life. My fastest was around 45-47 minutes.
So for your first time thats pretty darn good. I remeber the first time i did it I just beat the walking recommened time of 1 hrs only because a blitzed the DH section.
And Im never heading up there again.

Yes it is

It's to short!! 2 min track :(

It's a easy track that anyone can do but i think it's alright. Needs some more work done to it.

Everyone was making a new track today. Didnt go look but looks like some steep terrian!


oh cool good to have some more downwards tracks in the bay pity :) there all going to be quite far out ..how much is hilton charging for shutles out there ?


$40 pre person :crazy: . Give me a pm or something mit beable to give you a ride out there one day and do some shuttles. The new track is a freeride track going out today to ride and have a looky.

Even (especially?) the walking up the Tip Track will be awesome for your fitness, GF. Just keep plugging away it every now and then and your strength will increase very rapidly. Your time up there is fine... :thumbsup:
