Steep aspens with nasty undergrowth. Good when it's deep!

Need to Know

There are big rocks (not quite cliffs), a streambed at the bottom, and a lot of deadfall hiding in the snow. All in all, this is only good during a really deep snowpack.

Description

From the Wow run, hardly anyone seems to stay on the ridge to the top of the aspen glade at the end. It's much more tempting to peel off right. But give this a try if the snowpack is very deep. The snow can be shockingly deep in this little pocket. It's very well protected and almost never gets sun or wind affected.

On your first trip, be careful of the stream at the bottom!
