A very technical descent that could put a smile on your face! The top half was re-routed in 2017 to be more rideable

The lower section is fairly tough to climb or descend

Description

This would be a VERY difficult climb.

Some riders will agree that Blue Ribbon is a very fun way to end a ride on this trail system.

It's rideable by most intermediate/advanced riders except for a few walkable sections. For more advanced riders, there are tons of small drops, rock launch ramps, and technical moves to make this a highlight of your entire ride here.

The upper half of the trail where it intersects with Skeeter's Ridge Trail and Roller Coaster was re-routed in 2017 and is now an easy climb to access Mushroom Rock and the top of Red Hill.

Snow at the upper sections, and pretty slick on the lower aspects. Hiked today

Blue Ribbon has a lot of drops, but is surprisingly rideable, at least downhill!
