Description

Start either the base of T-Bar 2, aka the Bigfoot T-Bar or from the top of the new "Flower Point" Chairlift. The route consists of both groomed trail followed by a well-set bootpack. If deeper exploration past the demarked high point is to occur skins become a necessity but the route depicted here can be done without.

This area, although adjacent to an operating ski resort is LOCATED IN AVALANCHE TERRAIN. Please do not exit the ski area and explore this zone without proper safety gear, a partner, and training in avalanche safety between you both.
