A quick, mellow run.

Description

Skin up the Mainline Approach from the parking area at the summit of the pass, a short distance gaining around 300' vertical feet. Once you gain the ridge, the pitch will lessen. Find a good spot to de-skin and ski back down to highway 40. This is an easy one to lap.

Making my way down what I refer to as Gaffney's ramp (since it comes in under Gaffney's Playground)  You can see someone's bomb hole from someone hucking Gaffneys previously.
