As of 9/20/20 the whole trail is open and tons of fun. Well crafted jumps and flowy berms make this trail a treat. It is getting loose and dusty, but there is still plenty of grip. A few braking bumps but that’s to be expected at the end of the season!

Jump and berms galore! So much fun! As of 8/13/2019 the section of NPR that meets with Emerald Meadow and Blackmere drive is closed due to construction in the area. Simply take Emerald Meadow a short ways down and jump back onto NPR, right where the ski lift dumps out.

In no way should this trail be categorized as a black diamond.
