The one singletrack trail up at snowbowl. Fun ~20 min continuous descent, but a little more out of the way. Later on in the summer it does get pretty dusty and big braking bumps develop. No really difficult technical sections, but there are a few exposed areas and steep, loose parts. You can take the chair up on weekends during the summer, ride out the back of the parking lot and up point 6 road, or just go right up the singletrack. Don't ride up when the chair is going though.

Access Info

Ride right under the top of the griz chair, trail takes a left into the trees below the a-frame. From the bottom, ride up the outrun to the bottom of paradise, the singletrack goes out past the ski area boundary.

A couple streams running through the trail, only one of which you might want to walk across.
