Pigs on the Wing is an advanced descending trail on the Westside. It's composed of a series of steep and loose parts and several rock faces interrupted by much easier bits of meandering trail. . A fun trail that Pigs on the Wing is a joy to ride in combination with Short Bus. If you can't easily clean the first chute, consider riding a different trail.

Major erosion due to Enduro and traffic. Lots of moon dust, the chute in the middle is very difficult and needs the dust shovelled off. Otherwise...

The access is 98% clear. Little bit of snow at the fork in the flank and near the top. Trail is 100% clear and running great!
