PMT Map

PMT offers "steep, technical, and fast singletrack with technical elements," according to Vail.

Description

This ripping black diamond trail descends on the western half of the resort, offering a good stepping stone for riders before they take on the challenge of Old 9 Line. While the descriptions written by Vail Mountain give this trail a double black diamond rating, the trail map only assigns it one black diamond.
