Analysing terrain data
Valley Plunge is a black diamond trail off Great Eastern (lower) and towards the Skyeship Stage I base area.
To access this location, either take the Skyeship Gondola Stage I out of the Skyeship Stage I base area, or the Snow Shed Express Quad to High Road (lower) to Northbrook Trail (lower) into the Needle’s Eye basin.
Either way, you end up at the base of Needle’s Eye Express Quad and aim to get on Great Eastern (lower).
After you pass through the intersection of Home Stretch, slow down.
This area gets very confusing.
There is a big intersection and in that area, look for Valley Plunge under the gondola.
This will take you down to the Skyeship Stage I base area.
This is the steep trail that you see from Route 4 looking up at the Gondola and that looks very tempting.
There has to be a lot of snow on this for it to be fun, otherwise it is very icy.
Look for big moguls with rough and steep terrain.
This trail gets a lot of light.
It is perfect for people looking for a steep black diamond challenge with rough terrain and big moguls in the Skyeship Stage I base area.
