DSM, short for Dark Side of the Moon, will be built in summer 2015. The trail's name aptly describes the shady, dark and chilly north side of the Cinder Cone where the trail meanders through a dense section of old growth mountain hemlock forest. DSM will be machine-made and given the soil in that area, there is a lot of opportunity for jumps to be built.

 This is one of the most unique trails on Mt. Bachelor - and in a good way. The only downside is that you have to traverse across the cinder cone to get there, and then when you are done the relatively short run, it's a brief flat pedal out, with a short climb back to the lift. I'm not against climbing, but on a lift day, I get bitter if I need a dropper post.

That being said - definitely ride this trail! It goes through some different forest, being more on the shadow side of the mountain, and it has some really fun trail features. It's a slower, twisty-er trail, with wooden ramps, and some small gap drops and jumps (2-4 feet). Even with the little gaps, everything was natural enough to hit blind with intermediate riders.
