Update

A moderate climb to a spectacular summit.

Description

While the ski down isn't particularly good, this route is easy to navigate to a pretty spectacular summit. The ridge is usually wind-scoured, and you're better off sticking with The Polar Line if you just want turns.

Navigation is easy: head east until you hit the obvious ridge of New York Mountain, take a right, and just follow it to the summit. While you can't get lost of the way up, returning to the hut might be trickier since you can't see it in the trees. Follow your skin track, GPS droppings, or use the Powder Project mobile app. If you feel confident in your location, ski The Polar Line straight home.

Be careful of bad weather. It would be ugly up there!
