A mid-mountain traverse offering options on !Hellroaring Peak.

samh Haraldson
Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry

Description

Midway down Hellroaring Peak at the end of the Hellroaring Peak Summit Snowfields is a cross-slope traverse that can be used to quickly and easily move a skier or snowboarder to the skier's right side of the peak, thereby reducing ski pressure to different zones aka finding more freshies!

The Hellroaring Peak Summit Snowfields are the "real goods" in this zone with wide open glades of snowghosts, so the turns that come after the Outpost Road are tighter but still provide very fun skiing or riding.
