Micro Climate is a relatively new trail – it opened fully in the spring of 2014.

      Cleared the tree. The Chief Stick Officer advises you to watch out for moon dust on some of the chutes and tight corners.

       Ridden 08/19/18. Loose and poofy. Slippery and a bit blown out. But fun. Would ride again. The EWS pros made it look much easier.

       Pretty beaten up. Would recommend hitting Crazy train or Hey Bud with similar difficulty

       Fair bit of water in the upper half with lots of decent size puddles. Caution on the climb there is a deep hole on out of the dust that swallows bikes
