NorthStar Cancels Summer MTB Park

So I got this press release on some of the forum boards and email aliases I subscribe to. I don't see it posted on the NorthStar at Tahoe site, but it looks pretty official:
Northstar Village Announces Summer Operations Plan
TRUCKEE, Calif. – To assure a high quality guest experience during
construction of the Ritz Carlton Lake Tahoe and other mid-mountain
improvements, Northstar will suspend its mountain biking programs and some
lift operations during the summer of 2006, Northstar Village announced
.... yada yada yada ....
Silva explained that the Mountain Bike Park and program will reopen next
summer following its "one-year hiatus." With the first phase of the new
Northstar Village nearing completion, summer guests will still have a wide
variety of other recreational options from which to choose, including golf.
.... yada yada yada ....
"Next summer, Northstar it is our plan to have improved mountain bike
terrain and parks with access to some of the best mountain biking in the
country," he added.
If this is legit, this is quite sad news.
UPDATE (04/07/06): It's official, NorthStar has closed their MTB park for 2006. See here for their announcement.
