Sunday:
Stage 4: Rock Garden to Otter Slide. The Dreamcatcher lift takes you to Rockgarden, the newest downhill trail at Grand Targhee. Rock Garden starts off rocky, loose and off-camber, and opens up into big tabletops. Continue straight across the service road onto Otter Slide, a bobsled run of beautifully banked turns. Come off the wall ride and the stage ends just before the mustache ride feature.

Transfer: Pika Traverse to Shoshone. Head up Pika Traverse to Shoshone, and back towards the bottom of Rock Garden. Watch for traffic control.

Stage 5: Chutes and Ladders. This trail is similar to Otter Slide: lots of well-bermed turns, but also includes some other features, such as tabletops. The race ends at the base area.
