A great cross county descent outside the ski area.

Nick Wilder

Overview

Description

Leave the ski area and cruise down the ridge west of Eagle Bahn gondola terminal. Turn left at the one intersection (the Matterhorn trail goes to the right). Follow an old road to a beautiful meadow and Game Creek. Follow the creek down mostly easy riding on smooth trail. There are some minor technical difficulties near the end, but easy to walk through if you're the cautious type.

Though the trail is not hard, it feels much more remote than most Vail rides, and is something of an adventure.

This trail ROCKS! I've ridden Two Elk, Cougar Ridge, and now Game Creek and this is by far the most fun. For anyone trying to ride up this, you're going the wrong way. Jul 9, 2017
