Built in 2007 by the Scottish Downhill Association primarily as a race track, its origins hint at the challenges that await. Situated in the scenic glaciated valley of Glencoe the scenery is spectacular and barren. The trail threads its way straight down the open hillside with drops, rocks, tight switchbacks and plenty of challenge. This route provides a thrill for the experienced rider.

Exposure

Exposure

The exposure grade does not take into account objective hazards (stone fall, seracs…) but only the consequences of the skier falling.

Low Exposure (E1): Exposure is limited to that of the slope itself. Getting hurt is still likely if the slope is steep and/or the snow is hard.

Medium Exposure (E2): As well as the slope itself, there are some obstacles (such as rock outcrops) which could aggravate injury.

High Exposure (E3): In case of a fall, death is highly likely.

Extreme Exposure (E4): In case of a fall, the skier faces certain death.
