Description

"This trail has tight, steep turns and a few drops with access to Aspen Slalom and lower Fire Swamp," according to Deer Valley. "This tight single track through the aspens follows the Sterling Express chairlift down."

Overall, Aspen Slalom is a tight, technical old school DH trail that's been around for years. The new crop of downhillers raised on big jumps and flow trails could have a very tough time with this type of old school trail!
