Although the trails here have the pitch of a green run, they're quite narrow which makes them of intermediate difficulty. The choose your-own-adventure feel of this area is what makes it unique. There are so many different lines to go through with plenty of variety! This is also a good alternative for those who became psyched out after getting closer to the Woods Lake Chutes.



Slopes become slightly steeper at around 25-30 degrees.
