Easiest double black at Northstar. Most features have ride arounds. Pro Lines are difficult. Very loose and dusty.

Access Info

Take the fire road and follow the signs from Zephyr, you can hop on the first part of Coaster to skip some of the road. It's a long traverse to the trail compared to other routes at the park.

       Pretty technical with drops and rock roll. Roots and stones keep you focused the whole way down
