The Vapor Trail serves up 2.6 miles of downhill terrain and 1,400 feet of vertical drop. It begins at the top of the Elk Camp Lift and descends through a wide-open meadow, over bridges and berms and through groves of aspen and evergreen trees. It eventually ends at the top of the Elk Camp Gondola, where — if your synapses aren’t fried yet — you can connect to Valhalla. With berms up to six feet high and other natural features – this downhill trail will challenge various levels of riders, from intermediate to advanced.
