Deer Valley has stepped up their game by adding this trail to the resort. Gravity Logic, the guys who have years of experience building the trails at Whistler were called in for this project (supposedly the first of many) at Deer Valley. Big berms, tables, and tons of jumps make this one of the best flow trails in the region. It is a great trail to build cornering and jumping skills.

       is this the Tidal Wave trail being built right now, or something else entirely?

       to answer my own question, yes it is. A small piece of the Tidal Wave trail still under construction by Gravity Logic

       Correct. This section is finished. Gravity Logic is apparently working on extending this trail all the way to Silver Lake. The new upper Tidal Wave is awesome! Deer Valley constructed really steep hard berms on all the switch backs and added some small, but fun, tabletops on the areas in between. Gravity Logic created this section. It is more fun that should be legal. The table tops are awesome to jump. It is seriously a riot. Beware though, there were a few tourists that liked stopping at the top of the tabletops to take pictures or chat. We had to remind a few people that this is not a trail you stop on.

       Also, the photos and videos that are supposedly taken of this trail (everything posted before 7/31/15) are NOT of this trail. They are of other trails apparently named "Flow".
