“Low angle slope with an easy approach.”— Abandoned User
Note that this place gets skied out very quickly after and even during a storm. Your best chance at fresh pow here is to hit it on a weekday when most people have to work.
There are several ways to access this slope, the most direct being via Short Swing. From the top of Short Swing keep traversing the ridge and "the cone" will come into view. Descend into the saddle and then up to the top of the cone. There are always more than a few skin tracks that will bring you to the top, however. For the most part, you can pick any one that you see before the Y in the Mill D North Fork trail.
