Fairly rowdy downhill with some rock gardens, steeps, and a few good jumps/berms mixed in for good measure.

For the motivated, this trail more or less starts from the top of the Sky Tavern lift. Look for a sandy drop in thats just left (northwest) of the unloading terminal.

      Still snow all over the top half. It will probably be another two weeks before it's all clear.

      Trail technically starts at the top of the lift for a little extra fun!

      Super duper dry at the mo and a little rutted up. Typical tahoe moon dust. Fun and loose.

       Fun but definitely not a double black. Maybe 2 sections could be considered expert and all tech is rollable but one. Great trail though!
