Slow Down Before You Speed Up
Crashes can happen on your first lap. Ride the trail multiple times to get familiar with the features and equipment you’re on so you can confidently push your limits without pushing your threshold. Jumping skills are required for freeride trails.
Warm up the brain and body and inspect the trail at low speed.
Lap the trail a few times and get to know the flow of the features.
Start small and work your way up to faster speeds and larger features.
Freeride trails are machine-cut and contain man-made features. Routes are enhanced with dirt jumps, ride-on features, gaps, narrow surfaces, wall-rides, berms, and other natural or constructed features. All freeride trails are identified with an orange oval.
Technical trails are designed to embrace the rugged shape and terrain of the mountain, utilizing a majority of natural terrain. Routes are typically hand-built and feature organic obstacles and stunts such as rocks, roots, logs, drops, jumps, and other natural or constructed features that require technical riding skills. Technical trails are identified by just their difficulty symbol. Jumping skills may be required.
