“Classic spring skiing off of the Beartooth Highway.”— Hilary Eisen
From the top of the headwall pick a line and drop in. Every option is steep at the top but they all eventually funnel into a fun apron towards the bottom (watch out for rocks as the summer progresses!). Depending on the line and snow conditions there may be a mandatory cornice drop but most of the time you can navigate around the cornice (skiers right, typically, has less intense options).
Once you've reached the bottom of the apron make your way to the large pullout at the highway switchback.
