Opened in September 2012 after a long closure for upgrading & rebuilding. Walleater is the biggest trail on the hill and is a test for the best riders. Built with a more freeride feel the trail starts with a rock backed double into a short steep chute. A gap into a big left had hip brings you to a steep road gap with bermed corner dropping down to the showpiece Sky Berm. The Sky Berm is an elevated timber berm (not a wallride) which swings you right into a small drop. Land the drop and hit the rock gap into left, then right handed berms before hitting a little kicker to rejoin the Red Course.
