So I've been to Crankworx to watch Slopestyle several times, but never to watch the DH races.

I'll be up there to check out the Garbo DH and Air DH race days…but I am looking for suggestions on the best spectating locations for both events?

What do you recommend? Reps for good recos!

IIRC i don't think you can get up into Garbo (on the chair) unless you have a racer plate. Don't know about hiking up?

Pick somewhere that there are a couple of line choices, or a nice wide open section, or a section you really struggle with.

You can take the Gondola and walk down.

A lot of people hang out on Monkey Hands to watch and cheer the end of the race. You can hear the announcers and listen for times too.

Cool, though TBH not racing when i had the chance was the dumbest decision ever.

pretty sure you can still go up garbo without a plate, you just can't ride down the course obviously, the Rock Drop on Aline is a good spot, as is the triple section before the shale and the last jumps before the GLC…..
