Great climbing trail from the resort up to the top of Otter Slide. This trail is also fun down. It starts with some big berms that have you wondering if it is really a bidirectional trail. But as you get closer to Big Sky, it turns more into a typical climbing trail. If you are not going to shuttle Otter Slide, this is the best way to ride back to the top
