A short section of very tight trees.

Description

When you've tried everything else and you want just one more shot of fresh snow this is the kind of spot to hit. After the short hike to the Big Mountain Summit Proper you can get a couple fresh turns as you head into Hellroaring Basin.

Head north from the radio equipment at the summit and keep your wits about you. The trees in this section are tight.

The view from the proper summit of the Big Mountain is enhanced when enjoyed alongside a fresh cheeseburger from the Summit House.
