Valhalla is a 2.75-mile monster of a trail designed and built by Gravity Logic. It invites the toughest riders – and those who strive to be – to tackle an assortment of freeride challenges over the course of its 1,400-foot vertical drop. Valhalla sets a winding course through the aspen trees and features berms, jumps, bridges, table tops, a wall ride, drop zone, fruit bowl and rainbows, eventually delivering thrilled riders to Snowmass Base Village. Its one thing to describe it, quite another thing to experience it.

The Vapor Trail serves up 2.6 miles of downhill terrain and 1,400 feet of vertical drop. It begins at the top of the Elk Camp Lift and descends through a wide-open meadow, over bridges and berms and through groves of aspen and evergreen trees. It eventually ends at the top of the Elk Camp Gondola, where — if your synapses aren’t fried yet — you can connect to Valhalla. With berms up to six feet high and other natural features – this downhill trail will challenge various levels of riders, from intermediate to advance.
