2018 NAEC Sport Day 2

Sport Course is Stage 9 and Stage 10 on Sunday.
2,900' of climbing, the rest is lift access.

Transfer 9 - Stage 9
Leave from town on the Trail of the CDA's, and take a right on Division St. Climb up and stay on Division ignoring the Day 1 turn off. At the top of the paved hill, you will reach a closed gate with a dirt road to your right, continue up the dirt road. Stay on this dirt road, following the signs and upload Chair 3. Stage 9 is Jackass to Lower Jackass, a fast, flowy pair of trails that feature short bits of tech riding.

Transfer 10- Stage 10
Stage 9 ends on Ridge Road, continue down the road until you see a transfer to your left on to Moose Knuckle. Descend this gentle single track and then knock out about 200' of climbing back to upload Chair 3. Stage 10 Starts on Hammer, with a mix of jumps, berms, and tech. Everything is rollable or has a ride around. Continue down into Lower Hammer, which is a flowy jump line. Be sure to get familiar with these ahead of time, especially the filter feature and the little optional gap that is marked near the gondola line. Hang a right on to Mutton Conductor and embrace the arm pump as you take on one of the longer tech sections at Silver. At 5 Corners you'll shoot straight into Spooky Woods, which will give you a chance to do a little pedaling for just a second before it returns to some classic Silver Mountain tech riding. Navigate the tight right turn at the bottom of Spooky Woods and then bang out the Extremely fast and loose Wide Open Road. Watch that right hand onto the main Wide Open trail, it gets blown through a lot. Wide open is a mostly flowy trail that's riddled with roots in places and features a number of jumps you'll want to keep your speed under control for, including the brand-new jump line near the bottom. Next up is Man Child, with more jumps and lots of features to get timed right. Cross the road into Frog Trees, a green trail that gets hairy at speed. You just finished a monster of a race, go soak in the river!

Head back to the base on the Trail of the CDA's
