Need to Know

This line is only rideable after a big winter and spring

Description

Drop into this line for a short and sweet, thrilling ride—make sure your edges are finely tuned and your senses sharp. When it's filled in enough to ride, it forks into two routes. Straight down leads to a double drop, and to the right is a steep line that requires some finesse.
