A skin up the right side of the main downhill trail when skinning up.

Description

This is an awesome trail, just wanted to include some directions for the up. There are many variations, but whatever you do, please don't skin up the Thunderbolt Ski Trail itself, which some have done in the past. Trend right from the shelter at whatever angle you want--you should never really cross the Thunderbolt Trail.
