“An excellent open slope leads to great, easy tree skiing ending right at the hut.”

Need to Know
Things generally get more dangerous, and the snow gets worse, above tree line. Only go as high up the bowl as you feel comfortable.
Directions for this area are easy: head uphill as far as you can (or until you hit the ridge of New York Mountain). You'll start in trees but quickly hit treeline and can continue in open slopes. Return the way you came. The tree skiing is at a nice mellow grade and the trees are not too dense.
There is a huge amount of skiable terrain here, and lots of little rolls and fun stuff in the trees. It's easy to get disoriented and miss the hut, however, so perhaps keep your uphill skin track in view until you get comfortable in the area.
