Features -none-

A lift ticket is required to ride the chair to the top. Downhill-only mountain bike trail. No uphill access or hiking permitted.

Description

Get yourself to just below the top station of the chairlift to access Milky Way. After dropping in, you're immediately greeted with a couple mandatory doubles and some high-speed berms. Just before exiting the woods, a decent sized step-down presents itself. While the takeoff and landing are perfect, you'll want to ride around this one the first time to get an idea of how much speed you need to clear the knuckle.

Blast out onto the ski run, over a double, through a few more berms and back into the woods. Two more jumps in the woods lead back out into the open and to the end of this trail. Turn left for Girl Scout or go straight to access Holy Diver, or Motorhead.

Doable but unnecessarily difficult for me. Stick to the single blacks :-)
