NE Style at Highland
20 Aug 2013
By David Scorer
After this season's much anticipated grand re-opening, we thought it was about time we featured NE Style - Highland Bike Park’s Flagship trail - in the Tuesday Trails series...
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”. It was the first machine built trail at Highland way back in 2005 and is now the 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 two 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...
So the Highland Trail Crew were hard at work earlier in the year revamping one of Highlands original trails with a complete makeover!! The overhaul will eventually go 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 the original day of shooting, but in Highland fashion the team stepped up and set out the following morning determined to capture the crew as they reaped the benefits of their hard work with some maiden rides down the fresh trail.
”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.
Looks like it's mission accomplished, so get up to the mountain and enjoy yet another great Highland masterpiece!
