“A nice warm up before you head up to the real hills.”— Jared Crockett
Beyond the sledding hill is where the old ski runs used to be cut through the trees. This run used to be known as "Ptarmigan". Back in those days it was a "green circle" run. Well some things don't change, because it still is. This one is fun to hike up and then glide back down just for a nice little warm up. It's enough to give you a taste and make you really want to climb up the bigger hills for a longer run. It's nice and wide open, sort of like a bunny hill. It can be a little more fun to hike up above this run a bit and start your downhill in the trees...just to spice this one up a bit.
