The most technical section in the Shuniah Mines system. Here you will find plenty of rock, skinnies, a log ride, rocky technical climbs, tight singletrack, and the signature rock chutes. Some of those features are optional lines, but many are mandatory.

Snakes & Ladders is designed to be ridden from the top access point near the fork of the adventure trail/prologue loop.
