Sunny and exposed, very little tree cover.
Cinch is a wide, smooth dirt road from top to bottom. It's mellow and consistent grade make it popular for uphill biker, hiker and runner traffic, although there are prettier trails at this resort. Be careful of ski area vehicles driving uphill and watch out for loose debris on the corners.
Cinch has great scenery as it zigs and zags around the ski area. One popular option is to run Cinch up and ride the Centennial Express chairlift down, saving wear and tear on the knees. Alternatively, to ease the altitude acclimatization process, some prefer to ride the lift up and run down.
