A gentle slope full of small rock hits and gaps full of powder days after a storm.

Need to Know

Follow the ridge down until you see the houses, cut to the left of the first set, and then continue right in-between the condos and the houses on War Bonnet.

Description

This is a fun powder run where you can get fresh tracks days and days after a new storm. Get off at the top of Lake View, head right, and ski towards the little lodge. Ski around the lodge, past the out of bounds signs, and down the ridge. Enjoy the fresh pow stash for days. Once at the bottom, ski out to ski way, jump on the Diamond Peak Shuttle, and go back up for round 2.
