“A great way to finish a powder day at Vail.”— Nick Wilder
From the end of the Game Creek cat track, instead of turning right and skiing down Lost Boy, hook around, though the boundary gate, and gaze west at a nice bowl and aspen grove below. You could also hike to the top of the knob above you. Pick a line down the bowl - it doesn't matter too much since you'll end in the same drainage no matter what.
Once in the drainage, be careful - conditions can be all over the map, and include dirt, open streams, and a fast icy roller coaster ride. The "mile" is really more like 2.5 miles, and it can be fun... or a terrible, long, muddy hike!
