    Best Northstar Jump Line/Trail

    Hey all! A buddy of mine and I will be heading up to northstar in a few weeks, and I just had a question for anyone who's previously been there. Is there a particular trail/trails combo that has the most jumps? I want to work on my whips and turndowns. Thanks

    Livewire is pretty much the only jump line. The rest of N* is pretty much ungroomed chunk.

    Gypsy and Boondocks are good on the same side.

    On the other side, Upper Karpiel (Lower Karpiel is good, but a gnarly rock garden tech fest), Pho Dogg, Sticks & Stones, Speed Control, Dog Bone, in no particular order.

    Speed control is fast.

    Basically all the black/double black trails there on the upper mountain are worthwhile for a skilled rider.

    Flameout, Liftline are meh....and some of the others suck or merely work to get to other places, but yea the black or double black are the only ones really worth riding if you have any time on a bike.

    I've only been riding for a year and took my trail bike there for my first ever DH experience and I'd agree. Didn't touch any double blacks but the blues were boring and the blacks were fun. With more experience and a proper DH bike I can't imagine doing anything less than blacks.
