This wide, sweeping blue trail offers the best warm-up run on the mountain, especially if you've ridden the Gondola up.
Simply take the Tamarack Express lift, exit across the California Trail, and follow the lift back down to right in front of the Tamarack Lodge.
The trail is wide, the light is good, and the terrain is highly predictable...
no hidden bumps or flat spots...
so on a cold morning, it's a great area to warm up your legs before heading to other parts of the mountain.
Best yet, the views are unbeatable...
on a clear day, the lake will be in full view for must of the run.
