Big mountain riding doesn't get much bigger than this annual freeride race.

Ride ridge top to valley bottom with 3,500 vert descent.

Accessed by shuttle, Dirt Diggler is 6.5km, over 3,500 vertical feet and complete with steep chutes, coal dust and great air time. On a casual day with friends, the ride down is enjoyed for over an hour but in race mode, the fastest riders are finished around the 10-minute mark.
