The route back to the hut after skiing Resolution Peak or nearby trees.

Sallie Hoefer
Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry

Description

After skiing Resolution Mountain or the nearby trees to the east, you'll come across a road. This is a good place to end your descent. From the sharp turn in the road, at a small drainage, start working your way up. You can stay on either side of the drainage, and I prefer to hug the trees to the right (east) side. The angle relaxes near the top and you can pop into the hut or do another lap.
