Debuting in 2012, Valhalla is a 2.75-mile monster of a trail designed and built by Gravity Logic. It invites the toughest riders – and those who strive to be – to tackle an assortment of freeride challenges over the course of its 1,400-foot vertical drop. Valhalla sets a winding course through the aspen trees and features berms, jumps, bridges, table tops, a wall ride, drop zone, fruit bowl and rainbows, eventually delivering thrilled riders to Snowmass Base Village. Its one thing to describe it, quite another thing to experience it. Check out the video above.

New for 2017 is a short jump section that are more like sender with dip you need to clear. You can roll it if you go slow, you can clear it if you go fast, but if you don't make the dip you can hit the edge pretty hard. There are warning signs on he trail of the new section, look before you leap.

       Yeah this is not a black trail. There are some moderate size tables but it really is a flow trail.

       Flow trails can be black. If you don’t believe me, search ALine in whistler bike park.
      Of course this trail doesn’t compare to ALine, but difficulty ratings are according to the area and surrounding trails available.
      This is a black flow trail.
      I recommend you pre ride as some of the jumps aren’t necessarily built to be hit at the speed at which you can ride the trail. Unless you’re very good at scrubbing.
