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.

      Such an amazing trail!!! Really fast and flowy, the builders and definitely good at their job, if you go on Ontario run in the winter you can go into the trees and ski on it, I even clear some of the jumps on skis, but I must say this trail is so much better on a bike. I ok boy complaint is that there aren’t any trail signs right now, which made some intersections with other trails confusing, however this makes sense as they are preparing for the ski season and need to take most signage down so skiers aren’t confused. Most of the time your going like 20mph, so you have just the right amount of speed for practically all of the jumps, like I said it is just so well built

      Great trail! The first part is definitely not a black though. They need to change there signage.

      The worst brake bumps you’ll ever see, seriously. Even whistler in the midst of a long dry spell isn’t this bad.

      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".
