Hyalite road is closed from approximately Apr. 15 to May 15.

Description

From the summit of Mount Blackmore take descend generally skiiers-left hugging your ascent line all the while letting your skis or board run a bit enjoying this airy zone.

Once you are over the wide open snowfields of the North Shoulder open it up and throw some sprays to the valley floor. From here, take a safe vantage and give your partner the all-clear. Watch as they mimic your line and then reconnoiter. From here it is a quick transition to make another lap on the snowfield, or make the decision to continue down valley back to the trailhead.
