The most popular run on Snowbasin; this is a pretty hard blue and will really challenge newer riders. But because it is lift-fed, you can expect to see a fair number of nuggets trying to work their way down. But take your time and take in the scenic views of Pineview Reservoir far below.
There are some really challenging rock-garden drops right off the lift, and the overall terrain and geology of the mountain means that there will be rocks a'plenty to deal with on your way down. A few extra pounds of tire pressure is a good idea. Also, because of the amount of traffic, the trail can become very dusty during dryer seasons.
