Typical vail trail conditions, tons of tourists dragging their brakes and leaving all trails brake rutted in corners, straights everywhere...riding on washboard. DH trails are not maintained, I've seen the trash get worse every week, trails not patrolled watch out for tourist hikers w/unleashed dogs who can't read the signs or symbols. Wasted my money on a season pass, do yourself a favor and ride keystone, trestle, or Evo at CB for resorts that care about mountain bikers experience and personal safety.
Radio flyer- fun early season before its a complete rutted washboard/sandpit corners
Pmt & Magic forest- black diamond means unmaintained, few "jumps" if you can call them jumps, gopro video played at eagle bahn gondola features sections of these trails and 94 DH that no longer exist.
Bigs mamba is ok in the lower half, be prepared for the worst brake bumps and slow riders that don't pull off.
Be happy, ride your bike elsewhere. Vail just wants your $$$
