Description

Start at the skier's left edge of the rock band that makes up the feature Icefall runs through. A thin line should be visible down to the ravine floor. The Lip is between 40 and 50 degrees. A good route finder will ski this with ease, generally avoiding rocks and ledges. Ascend up the route prior to skiing it for the best understanding of where to go.
