Description

To reach Flattop's East face there are two options, Flattop Mt. approach or Flattop East face approach via the Fern Lake trail. Climb as high as you like; the views only get better. The skiing is fun, open and can be great after a fresh snow. This area is generally safe due to its east facing aspect and lower angle slope. Enjoy.
