●Full face helmets are highly recommended.
●A water and windproof jacket is highly recommended. Alpine summer weather is unpredictable and thunderstorms form quickly with little warning around Lone Peak.
Transfer 1: Otter Way to North Road to Morning Star. A flowy singletrack climb, followed by a steady service road section, finishing with a short but challenging hike. +1,100ft.
Timed Stage 1: Cairns Way to Rabbit Run. The upper trail is a fast singletrack descent with sweeping corners, tight switchbacks, and some rocky rutted sections. The lower half is fast flow trail with high speed berms, rollers, and a few flat pedal sections to put down the power. Highlights: Fast berms on Rabbit Run. Watch out For: Loose corners on the upper section. -1,100ft Stage open 9:30 AM-11:00 AM.
Transfer 2: Swiftcurrent Lift. Enjoy the lift ride and the view!
Timed Stage 2: Lobo to Elbow. A classic Big Sky descent. An all-gravity plunge through the trees with plenty of rocks and numerous small root drops. Highlights: Steep technical corners Watch out for: Root drops, loose conditions, and sidehill exposure. -1,200ft Stage open 10:15 AM-11:45 AM.
Transfer 3: South Road to Andesite. The easiest climb of the day, mostly on moderate service road with a few steeper sections. +700ft. (Note: Juniors proceed directly to stage 4 at top)
Timed Stage 3: Blue Room to Coolridge. Starts with a natural shale section off the actual summit of Andesite Mountain. Enjoy the next section of new flow trail in the trees. From here the trail gets progressively steeper with some rocky chutes, shallow bermed turns and some root drops. Once on Coolridge the trail becomes much more primitive with tight switchbacks and short but difficult climb. Highlights: A summit start and almost every trail type imaginable. Watch out for: A short awkward wooden bridge, surprise switchbacks near the bottom. -1,500’ Stage open 11:00 AM - 12:45 PM.
Transfer: Coolridge to Andesite. A character building climb. The first half is on enjoyable singletrack, but finishes with a burly hike-a-bike. +1,500ft
Timed Stage 4: Revenge. After another Andesite summit start and a short natural section across a ski run, the course enters the infamous Revenge trail. Sections in the trees are steep with dark soil, and sections in the open are fast and rough. Highlights: The exhilarating “waterfall” section. Watch out for: The initial drop-in when entering the trees is one the more intimidating features of the day. An optional rock drop on the upper section should only be attempted by expert riders (there is a B line). Many steep, tight, and loose sections. The “waterfall” is a super steep section that can be smoothly rolled down (do not air it!) but there is a B line option. -1,200’ Stage open 11:30 AM to 2:45 PM.
Transfer 5: Swiftcurrent Lift. Take advantage of the lift ride to rest tired legs (and hands) and get stoked for the final stage.
Timed Stage 5: Hollywood to Buffalo Jump to Soul Hole. Relentlessly steep and raw natural trail upper section. After a short but very steep climb the trail becomes wider and faster with more flow but still plenty of rocks and roots. Highlights: The corners of Lower Soul Hole. Watch out for: The upper section is steep and narrow. Arm pump! -1,500’ Open 12:15 PM to 3:30 PM.
Transfer 6: Short coast down South Road back to the base area.
