Great down hill from the Map Kiosk. Loads of flow with a great sweeping corner at the end. Keep the flow going all the way back to the Glasgow Lot.

      Freshly raked and heavily ridden. I didn’t see the tree by the lip from 2 days ago - trail maintenance crew is amazing.

      There is a tree that broke off and is now sticking out of the ground on the lip of the main drop.
