The Chestnut Mountain Alpine Slide, Galena, Illinois

Here's a view from the bottom of the run looking back up hill.

Here's Bond coming into the Alpine Slide's brake run.  You can slow down one of two ways.  You can either release the brake lever and stop or you can just keep the lever forward and run over the speed bumps before hitting the pair of tires at the end of the run.  Bond and I preferred the second option.

Once you're at the bottom you just hop on one of Chestnut Mountain's ski lifts and ride it back up to the top.

As you can see Bond gave his first alpine slide a big thumbs up.
