Avy tweets from @AvalancheGuys

An off angle open slope that looks like someone took a huge lick out of the mountain.

Description

It's a mellow fire road approach, then a short trail to the base of the ski run.

The face is nice to ski, but there's also a nice area just on top of the ridge that runs up the slope that skis well.

Snowpack looked good. Extended column test didn’t break during testing. When we pried the shovel in and pulled it broke off about 3 feet down.
