The latest addition to the bike park, this green trail starts from the mid-way clearing and swoops its way down the hill. Wide and flowing with an epic vista of big berms, Lake Wakatipu and the mighty Remarkables. The trail drops out of the open and back into the trees, before sending riders straight back to the gondola terminal to do it all again.

       Like hammies, it's fast and fun. Find the spots to boost off and this trail is fun as! Also has a few blacks branching off it.
