“A fun freeride trail, with more woodwork than you can shake a stick at.”— Luke Ryan
Electric Mountain Bikes Allowed
As you start down the top of the trail, you'll be in a flat rock garden, it is easier if you carry a little speed so you don't get "wadded up." After this, you'll head through a tunnel where the Livewire trail jumps over Gypsy, not a bad place to watch people hit the step-up.
Once you re-enter the trees, the trail starts to get really fun, with small fast chicane berms and smooth wood turns. The "Whoopa Himhauser", pronounce phonetically, is an expert level feature that consists of a large step-up, right hand satellite dish, to step-off with a long landing.
Quick ski run cross and then you're into the "Spooky Woods", almost every turn in this area is a wood berm and the speed you can carry is ridiculous. The highlight is a steep banked S-berm that is over 100' long.
Catch your breath on the fire road before dropping into the new zone that opened in July of 13. The main attraction of this piece of trail would be the GoPro sponsored feature. This consists of a 3 option wood feature, the left is 2 banked turns to a step-off/out landing, the center is a wood step up to steep landing, the right is 2 banked turns to a right hip. All lines go their own way and then reconnect down the trail at manicured rock garden that is very fun to ride.
This trail will dump you out onto a fire road, follow it to the left and you'll meet up with the Coaster trail. You can either follow this to the bottom of the lift or hand a right into Zone 6 of Livewire.
