Some of you might remember this iconic trail from years past. Crack of Dawn has had a few upgrades to this classic trail but most of it is the same old burly XC from its previous glory days. COD is a great technical and fun advanced XC trail that will take you from the village and back with a few options and different braids to weave between so you can have a good amount of variety on each lap.

Access Info

To get to the start, go past the pond and follow Chakra across the ski runs going underneath the Silver Queen Chairlift. About 50m into the forest, you'll find the start of COD taking you off to the left and uphill.
