Description

Take the skin track through the trees just to the right of the Guardsman road winter trailhead and follow the ridgeline up to the peak. The beginning starts off mellow, and provides great views of Guardsman's pass and neighboring Hidden Canyon/Brighton Ski Resort. Once at the peak you have several terrain options at your disposal. Drop in to the southeast and ride the open face down to Blood's Lake, or to the North for a steep tree run into easier gladed tree runs. Beware your orientation, or you'll be walking back to the car!
