Short Steep and Fast. 2013 sees the arrival of Red Hot! With lots of big jumps, gaps and even wooden berms. You start at 2580m and finish at around 2000m (altitude). At quite a high pace (this is slightly more difficult but makes the trail flow better and more fun) can be completed in around 3 minutes. At the top there is a rocky blast down and suddenly back up for some sandy flow, then you have three options, carry on the easier way, take the fast steep rutted route, or take the mad, wooden kicker sitting on top of a bolder (best option by far!). after some more rocky flow sections there are some short cuts to improve air on the massive up coming table. Here is where it gets tricky, the next and last part before it reunites with the blue and green runs. It is very steep, rocky, sharp and you are right on the edge. the challenge is going fast enough to keep yourself smooth along the rough bits.... Three enormous tables (which are fantastic for whips) absolutely send you onto the blue towards a rocky drop-off called the "Moon-Landing". A quick dash across the valley takes you to the final hard part, a gap- step-up until the lifts, easier to clear but you're straight into the next corner which is hard to stop for! The last wooden berm, one of the best I've ever ridden takes you into the finish. By far one of my favourite DH Runs, 100% recommend!
