Description

Very steep, and fantastic skiing. This area just gets filled in heavily with snow. It can be quite wind loaded, and there is a lot of variability in the snowpack here. You'll love this skiing if you're into steep terrain. Just make sure you know what you're doing (this terrain is not for intermediate skiers). You NEED to be an expert.
