Description

This is a fast and mostly smooth trail. The worst part about it is the washboarding before you enter the corners. Pretty much all of the corners are banked so that you can maintain speed through them. Most of the time you are switchbacking your way down the ski runs and cruising through the trees to connect the runs, though there are tight twists and tuns in the trees as well.

While you could ride up this trail, people come flying down it, beware.

A full value couple of hours of cool, grueling uphill, away from that valley heat. Dozens of these open flats provide a few moments of recovery between many more steep and loose hairpins.
