Need to Know

A roughly cut trail helps you make your way through the dense alder and spruce to above treeline.. It may be steep at times and may require additional work to make it more user friendly.

Description

Following the Devils Thumb Ridge route to the top of the ridge, this line heads down and to the skiers left of the two central shallow gullies that dominate the center of the slope.

In certain snow conditions, these gullies could be terrain traps as well as being heavily corniced at times.

The ridgetop if often heavily corniced.

This are is generally low angle, you'd be hard pressed to find anything above 30 degrees on this line.

Skiers head up the skin track for another lap in springtime conditions. Even when avalanche conditions are high, this area has some great low angle skiing!
