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.

Viking is an flow trail complete with jumps, bridges, and other roll-able obstacles (nothing is a mandatory air feature).  This trail is narrower than Verde and has some more technical features.  For example, a couple of the jumps have take-offs with rocks embedded in them.  While you can roll over the rocks, it does look more intimidating that it actually is for a rider.  It is ideal for intermediate riders and those riders looking to take their skills to the next level.  This blue trail is less technical than the Vapor trail.  Thus, riders should invade Viking before exploring Vapor.

 The Verde trail begins at the top of the Elk Camp Gondola and winds its way down for 3.7 miles through the Aspen groves.  There are no jumps or features on this trail.  It is specifically made for you to enjoy your descent and hone your skills.  



Connecting the Elk Camp section of Snowmass to the western end of the mountain, Cross Mountain Trail is short on distance but big in challenge. Climbing from 10,400 feet to 11,000 feet, its singletrack tread offers lots of root and rock obstacles along the way.



An Aspen Snowmass classic. Traversing Snowmass and descending into the Maroon Creek Valley, it offers several stretches of scenic vistas and challenging undulating terrain.

Beginning at Owl Creek Road, the Tom Blake Trail climbs through pristine stands of aspen, crosses several ski runs now profuse with wildflowers, and eventually arrives at the Snowmass Village Mall. Note: The trail is closed from May 15–June 20 for elk calving season.
