Course Description: (red line) This course is a singletrack classic and a favorite! Riders stage and start on the access dirt road above the main lodge. The course gets serious right away with a big climb out of the start, so warming up is very important. The course then goes up to the Green Pond Loop singletrack, which features riding through beautiful alpine forest on dark and tacky dirt. A few rock garden sections provide a technical experience for riders. The trail wraps around the mountain and connects back onto a dirt road for another passing section and short climb. The long, sweet descent on singletrack features some newly built berms by Snowbasin. The trail turns and winds through the trees and crosses two tiny streams before dropping back onto the access road. From here, it’s a quick sprint up the road to lap through or finish.
