This is a new Trail at Snowmass for 2017 and is an great addition. This trail is more reminiscent of the old school rowdy, steep and narrrow singletrack that used to be more common in the early days of US bike parks. The turns have 1 to 2 foot rocky drops in succession, some of the trails sections are off camber which makes good DH tires really help in keeping tracking. Tight turns after some harry rocky steep sections make this track fun. The views are also spectacular as the trail opens up onto the ridge sections.
