From Snowbowl: "This trail is 95% downhill from the top of Grizzly to the base and the fastest way down.
Some parts are tricky with steep switchbacks, so check your brakes and watch for water bars."

Quick and racey but with plenty of gravel to make sure you keep your speed in check. Fun for speed and smooth riding, and jumping off the water bars.

Access Info

After getting off Grizzly Lift, follow the signs for High Roller.

      Very ruff from trucks and snow equipment going up it for the construction on TV mountain. Recommend taking Beargrass Highway instead.
