Snowmass most recent addition. Work on this trail was going on in 2017 at the close of the season, and it is now ready for primetime. Great new fast flowing trail. Not as blown out as Vapor Trail, a great addition to get riders up to the top lift.

This trail will be so much better when Snowmass gets 2 days of rain.
