Description

Smooth Operator is an expert jump line filled with large tabletops, elevated wooden features, wall rides, hips, and much more. To keep the speed high, every corner features a berm to help riders rail at top-speed. Many of the tabletops, especially lower down the mountain, are quite formidable, requiring expert-level jump skills to clear comfortably.

Be sure to scope the features on your first run through, as several of the hits lead to significant gaps and drops.
