Need to Know

Very high avalanche risk.

Description

This is a beautiful slope that should both excite and scare you at the same time. It's a perfect ski slope, but a great avalanche slope as well!

After climbing Resolution Mountain, take your pick of any line in this huge open bowl. You could probably stack a hundred laps in there if you cooperate. Ski all the way down with little or no obstacles all the way to the summer road far below.
