    Hey guys

    It's no big deal. Probably the only hazards are big chunks of snow that have rolled down from the road due to snow clearing, and some gravel mixed in with the snow nearer the road.

    It's Not really a lifted run... pretty much only used as a quick access from big D down to village quad/blue ribbon (rather than catching a bus)

    We used it as an access trail to blue ribbon/down to village chair and then Davenport access. Few rocks, choppy and blocky as sandy said.

    Rocks on Davenport too at the end. Took a chunk or two out.

    nowhere in particular...
    I use it to get onto the Davenport access when staying at the lodges in the Davenport area. A few years ago a group of us had a great run on it - untracked freshiesz! [​IMG]
