A nice, flowy downhill blast. Bermed corners make for a quick descend. A fair distance from other trails, but makes a nice circuit with trails lower down the mountain.

       This is one kilometre of smile. What a delight! Started in the snow and literally 'flowed' through sunlight patches of forest and naturally banked corners with too many bunnyhop objects to mention. Unfortunately, Lower Tube is the ugly sister of Upper and although twice as long not much more than a rubble chute. Still, more than worth the climb from sea level.
