One of the O.G. DH trails on Moose, RoS has seen plenty of changes over the years. The main line down is a blue DH descent with ride-arounds for everything. If it's your first time down in a while, definitely look before you leap, as some TTFs have changed significantly over the last couple of years. The black/advanced features are much harder than the blue features - lots of consequences.
