Drop, Transition, Climb, Repeat

Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry

Description

If you arrive here on a powder day, make your first run to the far skier's-right side of the pow field and then put the skin up track next to the trees on the edge. Get to the top, transition and drop again. Repeat until you've farmed enough pow that you can go home feeling good.

The vertical gain is less than 300' so this makes for quick laps. It's not very steep either so the going is pretty easy. Pair that with a nice view from up top and you've got the makings for a good day.
