An descending only trail for advanced riders only. This trail is much more challenging than lower Poppin' Tops & Flow State Trails. The progression is intentional, allowing riders to literally and figuratively "work their way up the mountain". - Trail opens on May 19th.

       Open and running well. Massive berm right at the top, some technical root drops as well. Pay attention!

       If you take this slow, it’s totally doable for a more intermediate rider. You won’t have the fun of those great tabletop jumps, but you’ll manage just fine. Very flowy and fast (if you let it), but less technical than say Joyride in Tiger (which is just a blue)

       I think the black diamond rating on this trail is responsible for the amount of complaints about CCDH being a blue. But just like CCDH, trail ratings are subjective so all anyone needs to know is that all the more difficult features are optional so it can be ridden as an intermediate if you choose. There's great sight-lines so even on a first run you'll know what you're in for. It's a great way to end your ride after hitting up the rest of the mountain.
