Description

A fast, flowing traverse across Bald Mountains Bowls with some optional airtime and open rollers, this trail can be lapped via the Broadway Connector and Christmas lift. From the Broadway Saddle Trail, hit the fast open rollers of Lupine to a couple of banked turns just up above where it then crosses Christmas Lane (this is a new section that was constructed in the summer of 2019) and continues with open rollers till it meets up with Christmas Lane at its exit. This trail features a playful high speed flavor as it traverses across Sun Valley's bowls.

Lupine was constructed in 2014 with IMBA Trail Solutions Specialists Randy Spangler and Jason Wells. Access from the top of Bald Mountain via the Broadway Trail or from our two perimeter trails Warm Springs Trail or Cold Springs Trail.

Sun Valley Bald Mountain's Lupine Freeride Trail

The Lupine Trail and nearby Saddle-Up Flow trail have great momentum and are super fun. They can be a bit dusty though.

Love the Lupine Trail! Rode it many times during three days on Bald Mountain. Always left me with a smile.
