FATMAP difficulty grade
Just opened at the beginning of the 2019 bike park season, Elixir currently provides a **fresh** flow line that bombs down through the Creek Zone, eventually connecting to Insomnia, which is a year older.
The entire Creek Zone was only just opened in 2018, so this entire side of the mountain provides a slightly newer-school ride feel. Interestingly, at the time of this writing, none of the flow lines in the Creek Zone are actually jump lines.
Rather, they ride like a never-ending series of fast-and-furious berms all the way down the thousands of feet of mountainside.
Berm after berm after berm, at first they come slow on Elixir, but soon the pace picks up.
At times, the berms feel like they are linked together in a chain, with no flat land in between.
You are constantly sideways on your bike, turning, turning, always turning! This serpentine downhill rip is a pretty freaking wild ride that can become more difficult than you’d think if you rip top-to-bottom without a break.
The Creekside Gondola is a beast of a lift, rising 2,112 vertical feet / 644 meters.
The scale of this mountainside provides descents that feel like they might never end! And when they eventually do… just hop on the gondola, and repeat! For variety, at the mid-mountain junction you can choose to skip on over to Earth Circus to finish your descent, if you so desire.
