Black Diamond Trails from Skye Peak

SUPERSTAR

Exiting the gondola to the staging area right in front of you, set up and exit the staging area to your right. Go down a short onramp, make a right turn at the bottom and you're at the Skyelark headwall. Bear to the left at the bottom of the headwall and follow a traversing connector trail to the middle section of Superstar. Before you get to the lower headwall, on the right, you can take the Highroad traversing connector back to Skyelark. Otherwise, you'll descend the lower headwall back to the Superstar Quad loading station area. This is a popular trail and the headwall section is often skied off and bumped up in the afternoon, with challenging mogul fields at the trail edges, especially the left edge on the lower headwall. This is truly a black diamond trail and should be accorded the proper respect. Be especially mindful of skiers and riders on this trail that are way out of their league and operating in survival mode.

LOWER SKYELARK

The lower section of Skyelark is a black diamond trail for its steepness. It also goes ungroomed sometimes, especially if a lot of snowmaking is occuring, which allows it to bump up. It can be a lot of fun this way when the snow has some cushion in it.

GLADES

Somewhere and Nowhere are short, narrow glades trails that run between Bittersweet and Skyelark. Skyebits runs off of Highroad between lower Skyelark and lower Bittersweet.
