Description

Tempest is nearly a mile in length and was the first hand built downhill-specific bike trail. It is fast and challenging with a couple of rock drops (with optional ride-arounds), wooden features over snowmaking pipes and streams (easily rideable), and three gravity fed rock gardens, which gives it an expert rating for mountain bikes. There is a sweet spot through each rock garden and when you find the right line, you can lean back and skim right on through.

It starts at the top of the chair lift and shares some short stretches with Pitch Pole near the top. Partway down the mountain it crosses Pitch Pole and during the bottom section, it intersects or runs by the Jibe Trail, Freebooter Trail, Hornswaggle Trail, and 22 Tacks Trail. It ends in the middle of the Bitter End Trail after having dropped almost all the way back down the mountain.
