Need to Know

There is a "sub-bowl" you may way to avoid (that has avalanche potential). You'll notice it, it's the one you want to dip into, because it looks steeper than the rest of the skiing you're doing.

Description

The skiing here is great skiing, especially on a bluebird day. It's exposed, so it provides great views and you can clearly see where you are headed. The upper section tends to be a bit wind scraped, but it's still worth the effort.
