Trail shared by Sallie Hoefer

This is a mellow, gladed and quick descent down to the base of the steeper pitch.

Description

This gladed line is super mellow, so would be good for many ability levels. If snow is too deep, it may be difficult to pick up enough speed, but if you hit it on a fresh day, you'll be pleasantly surprised.

As the pitch flattens out, unclip and hike up again. This quick pitch is great for lapping.
