This route is the coup de grace of the Schweitzer Basin and Schweitzer Mountain Resort series of trails.
A smooth connector from Ninja to the summit and vice versa.
Bonus! In season and during Schweitzer's operating hours enjoy a cold beverage, great food and awesome views at the Sky House restaurant before or after your trail ride

Is this the Northwest's best alpine mtb downhill or climb? Ride it. rate it. Share it!

 Me thinks the author has left an awful lot of goodness out of the description. First, if riding downhill is the starting point nearby selkirk powder at the summit of Schwietzer. Needs to be on your hitlist if you like bck cntry winter sports. Second it leaves out the obvious connections to ninja and the lower basin which adds up to north of 4000 vert with the cost of a beer for a shuttle back up. Third the lower basin is chock a block full of hits and berms. Oh and a section with features. My working theory is, they want keep it a secret. Stuff here to keep Everybody happy and smiling. like i said they're trying to keep traffic down.
