“Easiest down and up rides between Needles lodge (top) and Earl's lodge (bottom).

See Snowbasin's rules and regulations.
Easiest way down from Needles Lodge to Earls Lodge. Excellent scenery through dozens of switchbacks on a mostly hard packed surface with occasional rocky section, loose rocks, and roots. Good mix of shade and sun.
Follow the signs at several confluences and watch for traffic in both directions.
