       Lower section is closed off - looks like a forestry project.

       Open. Not sure why it’s a black. Blue in my books. Lots of fun!

       Absolutely epic trail! Great finisher after Fine China. Really picks up speed with the pump-track-esc feel!

       Not a black. Good beginner trail, but if you’ve spent time in Squamish or Whistler it’s probably a waste of elevation. Make some of the doubles into tabletops and add a wood feature or two and it would probably be better.

       This is a fine beginner trail, it is a black if you go full speed and hit all the jumps as gaps. Anyone can roll them if they want though.
