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.

      70% dusty dry but the other 30% is mucky and icy. You and your bike will need a bath after but you won't regret your decision to ride

      Great work on the new wood TTFs! I was on the “pre-ride” of the pre-ride, re-ride, freeride cycle so took it easy
