Fun flow trail with table top jumps and big berms. Does not get maintained like the resort runs, so this can get a big loose and rocky, which makes the jumps more difficult to come in smooth. The main flow trail kind of ends at a dirt road, but the trail continues on after a 90 degree left and hard right and taking you by the stream down to the road. To do hot laps of the best part, take a right at the dirt road that follow the White Otter lift.
