Overview

The skiing is fun, open and can be great after a fresh snow.

Description

To reach Flattop's East Face there are two options: Flattop Mountain Approach or Flattop: East Face Approach via the Fern Lake trail. Climb as high as you like; the views only get better.

This area is generally safe due to its east-facing aspect and lower angle slope. Enjoy.
