Trail shared by Dapper Dan Rogers

Big, serious, alpine skiing.

Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry

Need to Know

Like all lines in the park, it's big, it's alpine, it's a long approach, and it's serious.

Description

One of the "easier" ski lines in the park, it sees a fair amount of traffic. Approach via the Garnet Canyon Skinner, veer left up the southfork at the meadows. Turn up the ridge of the middle once you reach the middle/south saddle, and follow the obvious line up. It gets a bit tight at the top! Be sure to take time to enjoy the view, one of the best in the park!
