Description

One of the many possible quality ski lines on the south face right below the Jackal Hut. For this one, head east a couple hundred yards, then take the fall line straight down as far as you want. You should be able to connect many wide-open patches of easy skiing with few trees. As you get lower, you get stuck more and more in a drainage. Stop any time and climb back out.
