Gun Barrel Map

Gun Barrel begins just as you start the Saddle Track. Drop into the left and you will see a very obvious half pipe. It's great fun for ripping turns and playing around. On powder days it fills with snow, but on most days its hard-packed due to being in its own shadow.

Description

Follow it all the way until you come out near the end of the Easy Rider piste.
