A nice pitch of gladed skiing with easy car access.

Need to Know

This terrain is subject to avalanches. Just because it is easy to access doesn't mean it is patrolled or controlled.

At times the state uses long range weaponry to blast for avalanches on both sides of the pass. You DO NOT want to be skiing it when they are blasting because (1) long range weaponry hurts when it hits you, (2) if the artillery shells don't kill you an avalanche might.

Description

This is a fantastic little backcountry primer. Drive to the top of the pass, get out of the car, and ski down to the bottom of the pass through nicely gladed terrain. Have your designated driver pick you up at the bottom, and repeat. There are countless lines through the woods and around natural features in this area. Ski it with a partner to avoid getting lost in the backcountry! There is a distinct traverse near the bottom of the glade. Stay right to get back to the road.

Please note: if you don't have proper avalanche rescue gear (beacon, shovel, probe), then you shouldn't be skiing here. This is easy to access, but is not patrolled or controlled.
