A relatively easy approach to some great exposed skiing.

Description

This approach starts at the Second Creek Trailhead, passes the Broome Hut and ascends above treeline. The skiing up here varies between some fantastic blue skiing to some more dangerous (read: avalanche potential) terrain. Once you're up above treeline, you can easily get several laps in.
