SLOW DOWN BEFORE YOU SPEED UP
Crashes can happen on your first lap. Ride the trail multiple times to get familiar with the features and equipment you’re on so you can confidently push your limits without pushing your threshold. Jumping skills are required for freeride trails.
Warm up the brain and body and inspect the trail at low speed.
Lap the trail a few times and get to know the flow of the features.
Start small and work your way up to faster speeds and larger features.

CROSS COUNTRY (XC) / TECHNICAL TRAILS range from fire roads and rough forest paths to technical singletrack. They are designed to embrace the rugged shape and terrain of the mountain, utilizing a majority of natural terrain. Routes are typically hand-built and feature organic obstacles and stunts such as rocks, roots, logs, drops, jumps and other natural or constructed features that require technical riding skills. Technical trails are identified by their difficulty symbol. DOWNHILL (DH) / FREERIDE TRAILS are hand or machine-cut and contain man-made features. Routes are enhanced with dirt jumps, ride-on features, gaps, narrow surfaces, wallrides, berms and other natural or constructed features. Most freeride features have a ride or walk-around options. All freeride trails are identified with an orange oval.
