Description

Follow Road Runner past the top of Chair 14 and around the 180 degree turn that is Hydraulic Corner. Hop off the groomer and make your way through an open snow field and towards a group of trees. This feature is marked with a “Cliff” sign above the takeoff. Perfect takeoff, easy access and a decent amount of airtime make this cliff drop a favorite of many. Rigley’s requires a decent amount of snow to cover up some rocks in the landing but after they’re gone this can be one of the more pleasurable drops on the hill. The landing is a little flat.
