Description

Drive to the "Galena Summit" pass from the Ketchum/Sun Valley area and park on the side of the road. Skin the ridge to find multiple lines and bowls of good skiing varying from open powder fields to gladed trees. Lines can be found directly back to the road and your waiting car or lines that drop into bowls requiring further skinning back up and out.
