Luge Map

Luge is the flowiest run in the Evolution Bike Park. This intermediate flow line begins with a fast set of big, ripping berms with beautiful views that beg you to take your eyes off the trail… but keep your focus!

Description

The berms quickly drop into fast section of small jumps and drops, before returning to back-to-back berms, tabletops, and more berms.

Due to its popularity, Luge can show significant wear-and-tear from braking bumps and other erosion. So despite being a flow trail, it’s a good idea to bring all of your suspension!

Technically, Luge is one of the shorter trails in the bike park, but it connects logically into other blue and green flow trails. It also provides the option to cut across the mountain on Five Way to Painter Boy, and then to access Teaser. Teaser is an amazing flow line in its own right!
