Gopher Details

Gopher starts at the base of the Big Mountain Express at the Lift Plaza & travels out a dirt road, past the Barn & Chair 4, underneath Easy Rider & the zip lines, & drops into the Montana forest. The long doubletrack then winds from this dirt road all the way to Rainbow Pond & winds back to the Base Lodge on singletrack. The best scenic overview of the village area is available from the overlook on this trail.

Average Ride Time: 30 minutes out Gopher to the Base Lodge.
