Really steep and loose in spots. Some places are pure silt by the end of the day, and as you drop off of logs or steep spots, the turns are not that bermed out and it is difficult to not dig down the silt even more. A challenge to ride everyline and hit every jump. A rock/scree field in the middle of the run makes for some interesting tech after you have hit a jump that you have to turn a bit in the air to drop down to the left.
