      Rained the previous night so would benefit from a couple days of good weather to dry out.

       Did a blind run and crashed good ripped rotator cuff . this trail is super steep 1200 foot descent the top part and lower are great middle is so rutted out washed out an off camber plus super speep you can’t really stop. Committed is the word of choice. I love the trail but it was to much for me and I’ve ridden alot of dh at whistler and Stevens Pass this one harder then them in the condition it is in I was on my Capra I recommend you take a dh bike up I will be returning for a full run that’s my goal.

       Another great example of trail builders that visited whistler and thought they could make black diamond DH run. They did but because it isn’t maintained constantly it’s pretty much just blown out berms and baby heads. Skip this one and drive further north.

       Amazing trail, although this is my first time here and it rained a lot last week.

      It was in phenomenal shape and is one of the best built trails I’ve ever ridden. No clue what other commenters are complaining about. There’s some really steep spots but it’s a freaking downhill trail, what did you expect? No ruts, berms were rippin, lots of medium doubles. Just a fantastic trail.

       This trail has changed it it 03-28-21 and it it a different trail the second jump after the first chute and berm it's about 2 feet taller and not a table top its like a step up to a flat lading or into a berm. The secondary chute after you cross the road is a legit chuck fest and the trail has more trenches and better flow now then 2 years ago. The drops before the big drop are smaller and packed in better for the fist timers that's will be good news. In all this is for realy my favorite trail in WA it's amazing in the shape its in. With the right bike and the right conditions it's amazing but this trail is no joke when wet it's a coin flip if you won't crash
