20+ foot cornice drop to landing on the back of a fallen log.

Davis Bedient
Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry

Need to Know

You have to clear the log or there is no landing, after landing on the back side of the log, take a sharp right, and ski/traverse to come back into the resort right above the top of yellow chair.

Description

From the exit of Golden Eagle Bowl, straight-line down to the flat area on Crystal ridge. Taking all this speed, cut hard left and jump off the edge of the ridge. It's about a 20 to 25 foot drop, plus a solid 20 foot gap to hit the back of the log where you want to land. Speed is your friend. Make sure to traverse hard or you'll miss the exit.
