Lots of tough moves, punchy climbs and of course the Jacob’s Ladder itself.

Flowy tech at it's finest. You're having a good day if you clean this one.

Gnarly trail. Very rewarding to project.

For an old school trail it's laid out nearly perfectly. The rollercoaster nature of it allows you to rocket downhill until you crash into the next uphill nearly cresting it. No brakes needed and not much pedaling required to ride this one. The classic Batchelor Street descent.

The third run of the day on Mt Snow's steepest and most technical trail, #18. I took a good get off the run before and it kept me on the brakes...
