Description

Just off the top of the unload area of the Chile Express Chairlift, go straight from the Summit to the Trail Map sign. Just to the left you'll find the Angel's Plunge Trailhead.

Gear up for an exciting downhill with amazing views. The first .75 mile is fun and flowy. When you get to a traverse, look uphill and follow the signs. You'll pass Devinci's Code trailhead on the left, then proceed approximately 100 yards uphill to the second trailhead, which is on the right.

Once you get on this, be prepared for some extreme downhill fun. This fully benched out-of-bounds experience will definitely thrill any experienced mountain biker. Fun berms, some small to intermediate size jumps and some raw trail is what to expect on the Angel's Plunge Trail. This trail is entirely made out of decomposed granite and is the best trail at the bike park when it is snowing or raining.
