Description
Rustlers Ridge starts on the south side of the Thunderhead gondola. The trail gets rowdy immediately as you drop into a big exposed berm. From there the trail drops rapidly through more berms and a few rollers, giving you a feel for what kind of experience lies ahead.

From there, the route lets off the gas a bit with flowing trail and a few berms on shallower terrain, allowing for a few brief moments to look at the sweeping views of the Steamboat Valley.

The middle section of Rustlers goes through the 'toilet bowl', a giant sweeping turn through the aspens. There are also plenty of gravity features to help you get airborne. The trail intersects Valley View through here so be aware of cross traffic.

Just below this area Rustlers passes a junction with Rustlers Ridge Connector, a bail-out option to the top of Christie Peak.

The lower reaches of Rustlers start with some steep turns and sweeping bends that feed into a relentless series of deep berms and fast sections of trail. Your legs and arms will be burning as you roll to the end of the trail.

It's dealers choice at the end: Buckin' Bronc for the advanced and brave or E-Z Rider for a cruise into the base of the mountain.
