A short, easy meadow where you can rack up a bunch of laps

Nick Wilder
Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry

Description

This area has some of the easiest, most wide-open skiing near the Polar Star Inn. With only 300-400' of descent, it's good for quick laps when you don't want to venture very far, or are with a group that doesn't like tree skiing and needs something mellow. Additionally, it faces pretty much north and the snow gets less cooked in the sun.

Use the Powder Project mobile app and head straight north until you find the clearing. If you stack your turns, you could spend hours here without crossing lines.
