***Don't pay attention to the elevation profile. Place your mouse over the stages and it will highlight the stages on the map. TF doesn't like when we throw in lifts.

Stage order: 1, 1, 2, 2, 3, 3.

Racers may elect to do only one run but may not repeat a stage once they have moved on to the subsequent stage.

Access to Stages:
Stage 1 - Gondola > Xmas Lift to top. To repeat stage 1 the xmas lift.
Stage 2 - Mindbender Trail at the Gondola/Xmas Lift intersection. To repeat Stage 2 take the Gondola and then Mindbenders Trail to Stage 2.
Stage 3: Gondola > Xmas Lift to top. Stage ends at Traverse Trail (road). Take Traverse Trail down to Mindbender and take that to Lower River Run and take that to the base. To repeat Stage 3 you'll need to take the Gondola and Xmas Lift back to the top. Return to the base via Mindbender/Lower River Run.

I'm sure it is ridable, just not by me.
Technical down low, loose and exposed middle-to-top, steep the whole way. Hikers and uphill biking only, no biking on the service roads, this means your commitmented with no bail out.

I'd recommend only to riders who really wish to challenge themselves

Tough uphill that starts out technical with a few hike-a-bike spots but is much more rideable after .8 miles in.

Has a couple of rocks to roll over and some lips to hit but nothing terribly difficult. The challenge comes from it being so loose, narrow and continually sidehilling.

Fun fast trail with a few mildly technical sections. Would have been fun to hit with speed but a little too dry and loose for that when I rode it. I'm sure it would be a blast after a rain
