sticks and stones - Trail, Tahoe, California

DESCRIPTION

The best F#!$ing trail out there! It's starts out with a couple of doubles and goes on with a rock drop and a bunch of other stuff including a couple of perfectly sloped logs and some jumps here and there. There are new sections being added to the trail for 02'.

this is a good trail. i have only ridden the top section of it though. the top starts out with some tabletops and then goes to a logride. after that there is a steep kind of section, not really though. it is pretty rocky though

Customer Service

just go to the top of vista go to your left and go down sticks and stones, if you don't want to do the whole thing you can cut off on flameout.

Sweet trail!! Full of singletrack switchbacks, flowing rock gardens, and a few nice drops just large enough to be fun. Ride this trail once to set your lines. Second run...balls out all the way to the bottom.

Customer Service

try to take the center or far outside lines on all drops as the landings turn into deep v shaoed ruts early in the season.

Big Bitch

If you are a freerider or downhiller, you MUST ride this trail. I could ride all day until I get hurt, then get better and then ride it some more. It has a sick drop with a challenging landing and some awsome jumps. FAT logs, tight turns, big rocks, and a couple of real steep descents make this trail the best bitch out there. Come back in 2002, it's getting bigger!

Customer Service

Just take the two lifts, no worries.

Insane, and that's a good thing. Big drops. Tight & technical in spots & fast and wide open in others. It made me appreciate my Bullit,, but wish for a Boxxer instead of my Psylo. Yow. You can combine Sticks & Stones and Flameout (they cross about midway down the first section of the hill) to get a little variety. Flameout is tamer and lacks the bigger rocky drops, but is still a riot.

Customer Service

There's only one way down.

Sticks & Stones and Flameout seem to be the best drop-in at Northstar. You can mix it up farther down the hill, but start with one of those two.

this trail is sick. it has good tables at the top of the trail. all the drops are easy accept the 5 ft rock drop towards the top. all the other drops land on trannies.the trail flows better than karpiel. im warning you of this!!!if you get good at this trail, dont get too confident and hit dog bone/HSR. i did this and went over the handlebars 3 TIMES and on the third time i broke both my hayes levers off. take sticks and stones slow at first then once you learnall the obstacles and where they are bomb the trail like its a fire road!!! i rode this trail on June 17, 2002

Customer Service

just what the guy said up top

It's a pretty intence trail, lots of big and small rocks ( actually, you never get a moments peace ) . As usual with Northstar there is a lot of powder in the turns, so watch the brakes. It meets up with other trails at a couple of points. You can break on to Flame Out if it's too hard for you or Karpiel if it's boaring you. This trail definately earned it's double black diamonds, but it's doable. I hit it on a hard tail, and my bro hit it on a 24" BMX. What a F*&#ing crazy ride!! I would recommend it for someone with alot of experiance, and a big set of balls.

Customer Service

Hit that table top, then point the bike straight down and it will do the rest for you.

Sticks and Stones is probably the best yet most technical trails at Northstar. Three tabletops at the top are fun to jump. Watch out for the rock drops, don't just drop at fisrt sight unless you've been down the trail before. SOme guy in front of me broke his wrist that way. ENtire trail is juct covered with rocks. Saw some guys with hartails and Sids trying to bomb down- whta the hell were they thinking? All of those blackdiamond trails to the left of Vista are Sick (Dogbone, Karpiel, Flameout, all of those)

Customer Service

All of these trails are at Northstar. Besides Whistler, this has to be one of the most fun and tech. mtn. bike parks out there.

dogebone, karpiel, flameout,sticks and stones are really sweet and be nice to the lift people at the top and bottom, sometimes theyll let you go on after closeing time, if close to after it. also the logs at the bototm of vista are really fun. also drop the stairs in the village, then get the hell out, theyll yell at you. parking lot has a monterous 60 stair thats way scary along with many sets.

Customer Service

all of them
