Trail Tidal Wave
Such an amazing trail!!! Really fast and flowy, the builders and definitely good at their job, if you go on Ontario run in the winter you can go into the trees and ski on it, I even clear some of the jumps on skis, but I must say this trail is so much better on a bike. I ok boy complaint is that there aren’t any trail signs right now, which made some intersections with other trails confusing, however this makes sense as they are preparing for the ski season and need to take most signage down so skiers aren’t confused. Most of the time your going like 20mph, so you have just the right amount of speed for practically all of the jumps, like I said it is just so well built

Mayflower construction has ripped up a good portion of this trail. Didn’t see a closed sign but where machines crossed the trail it was pretty loose and rutted.

As of June 24, 2022, Deer Crest tail is closed due to construction work in the area. So if you ride MMT Ext from Silver Lake down you will probably have to switch to Undertow to get down to Snow Park

As of June 24, 2022, trail is closed for construction. According to DV bike patrol, it could last much of the summer.

The description, while not necessarily inaccurate, made me think this trail would be at least a little entertaining. It is not.

Such a blast doing this trail. Great way to get some high speed jumping in. The is a wooden bridge which you can roll however if you are coming in too fast it will turn into a big drop, so heads up for those doing it for the first time. Only issue I had was were the break bumps. Man, you really had to be careful coming in too hot because you'd loose control just before the jump. I was worried my bike was going to explode from the shaking.

Very very fun trail. However, be sure to stay away if you even think it’s above your pay grade. Very rocky, sometimes steep, and duuuuuuusty

The worst brake bumps you’ll ever see, seriously. Even whistler in the midst of a long dry spell isn’t this bad.

Technically you’re not allowed to climb it during operating hours but honestly they don’t care as long as you’re not some obvious Joey on a rental bike. I’ve had a few employees in trucks/atvs just drive by without saying anything.

No idea why this is a black, but worth it for the views. Flows better from west (From the poorly named “return” section- I guess a lot of people get here from the DV lifts?)

This trail is awesome!! Smoothest jumps I’ve ever hit! And probably my favorite trail I’ve ever ridden! Only bad part is the brake bumps.

I thought this trail was great. Not a lot of jumps, but reasonably steep and some tough rock garden.

to answer my own question, yes it is. A small piece of the Tidal Wave trail still under construction by Gravity Logic

Trail Tidal Wave
Correct. This section is finished. Gravity Logic is apparently working on extending this trail all the way to Silver Lake. The new upper Tidal Wave is awesome! Deer Valley constructed really steep hard berms on all the switch backs and added some small, but fun, tabletops on the areas in between. Gravity Logic created this section. It is more fun that should be legal. The table tops are awesome to jump. It is seriously a riot. Beware though, there were a few tourists that liked stopping at the top of the tabletops to take pictures or chat. We had to remind a few people that this is not a trail you stop on.

Also, the photos and videos that are supposedly taken of this trail (everything posted before 7/31/15) are NOT of this trail. They are of other trails apparently named "Flow".

Sep 28, 2022
Fourpoint signage seems have changed to be "Ripple" -- a bit confusing. Can be climbed currently in the off season as a bidirectional trail. This new "trail" looks more like a sidewalk, though it may not be fully built yet. Be advised, there is now no good / straightforward way to climb to Undertow / NCS / Devo start from the base of Carpenter unless you use this trail. Using the DV service road is brutal and you will hike your bike. Your options (currently) are Deer Crest + this trail or Tour Des Homes + the service road to the top of Carpenter. Or Deer Crest + Mid Mtn extension to Silver Lake, then pedal up to Carpenter from there. Deer Valley, if you are listening, please figure out alternative pedal access to the top of Carpenter from Deer Crest!
