Description

Tidal Wave is "an intermediate flow trail that begins at the top of Sterling Express chairlift and features a mixture of large bermed turns, over 50 jumps of varying size and will make you feel like you are experiencing a roller coaster on your mountain bike," according to Deer Valley.

This expertly-constructed flow line makes it easy to hone your jumping skills, allowing you to easily get comfortable with increasing your hangtime on the well-built jumps.

"Experienced riders can take the jumps and turns fast to catch serious air, while progressing newbies can ride it slower and enjoy the jumps as playful rollers," writes Deer Valley on their blog. "Hubs along the trail allow you to pull over to take a break or let faster riders go by."
