With any number of combinations available in the Bike Park section of SkyPark at Santa's Village, the route combining Upline with Sleigh Ride and Dark Forest trails makes for a lengthier fast downhill ride heavy on the jumps and single track enduro.

Riders can begin at the Pub at the bottom of Upline, where they can follow Upline as it heads up a gradual course to reach the Top of the World high point. From here, selecting the Sleigh Ride course will lead riders down a fast route with lots of berms and jumps. Sleigh Ride sits almost entirely on the sloped mountainside, and is groomed for high speed and almost no pedaling.

Definitely a fun series of rollers, tables and high berms, along with quick drops, Sleigh Ride gives riders a chance to hit the technical course with almost no effort. 

Upon crossing to Lower Sleigh Ride, the track continues down, though at a less sloped grade. Here the jumps are replaced by more of a weaving single track, though there are a few wooden obstacles that riders can hit. 

Reaching the bottom, riders have the option of joining the Easy Return trail back to the Pub trailhead area, or can fork right and cross a wooden bridge to reach the Dark Forest trail. Dark Forest heads into the woods, with lots of rocky and rooty single track that climbs and falls, meandering on a wooded course and tacking on distance. This portion is defintely slower given the multiple uphill slopes.

Dark Forest ends at a point where riders can turn to the Treeline Trail, or follow the return path back to the trailhead.

The hardest trails on this loop are graded at a Blue difficulty level. This loop combines fast downhill flow and forested single track in one of the lengthier combinations of trail inside the Bike Park.

Riders are subject to all hours and rules of SkyPark at Santa's Village.
