Description [Suggest Changes]

Saddle Up Trail is an advanced route that requires some know-how. The trail starts a few hundred feet west of the Christmas Lift next to a small ski race start house. The trail starts with quite a shallow grade, but becomes steeper the further you venture from the lift...

This is a professionally built freeride trail with all the elements you'd expect - stacked with large jumps and steep berms before merging with the final banked turns of Lupine Trail and returning to Christmas lift.

Berms on this trail are really good. A bit pedally compared to other flow trails I have ridden. It is on the north side of the slope so a bit less dusty and cooler than Lupine Trail. Jul 5, 2017
