***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.
