Description

The Skipper is a fun little tangent off from either the Wildwood Express (Chair 3) or the Mountaintop Express (Chair 4).

Both ways have a traverse to get here and it does not get a lot of people since it's kind of hidden.

This has a quick steep black pitch to it, with lots of bumps and is fairly challenging to the advanced skier or rider and up.

It ends quickly though, and flattens out to a blue type pitch for the final half of the trail.

Watch out at the end as it joins a very well travelled part of Vail.

Named after George Knox, Sr.

who at age 62 came to Vail and began the publication of a weekly newspaper, The Vail Trail.
