Corner 1 is a 90 degree left hand corner. After exiting corner 1 it’s roughly 30 meters to a medium sized step up jump. The jump is roughly 12 meters from the take off to the start of the landing transition. Upon landing corner two comes up quickly and it’s a 130 degree right hand turn.

Corner 2 to Corner 3 / Speed – medium

Corner 3 to Corner 4 / Speed – medium

The landing area is large and the flat deck is roughly 7-12 meters inside to outside. Corner 4 is a 90 degree right hand corner which takes you out of the tighter upper section of the course.

Corner 4 to Corner 5 / Speed – medium to fast

Exiting corner 4 there is 35 meters to a large flat down jump. The jump has a flat deck of 12 – 15 meters and the landing area is large. Upon landing you then encounter a large double roller set that is 20 + meters from take off to landing. This is followed by a double set of rollers again that is set slightly uphill roughly 15 meters from take off to landing. Corner number 5 is a wide open 160 degree left hand turn.

Corner 5 to corner 6 / Speed - medium to fast

This leads directly into a step up which is quickly followed by a steep jump airing the athletes back to their original elevation. The next feature is a roll which leads into another step up roller which is then followed by another step down that is 1.5 meters high and has a 5 meter deck. Corner 7 is an open 90 degree left hand turn.
