Description

From the parking area at around 8,000 ft, a good skin track up Beehive Basin pretty much always exists. Follow the track (which mimics the summer trail) and and head as deep into Beehive Basin as you wish to find ski lines.

Take care on the approach to minimize your exposure to the avalanche terrain that is located on the basin walls. The skin track follows the bottom of the drainage and is generally out of harm's way, but as soon as you leave the track and opt to climb the ridges, avalanche mitigation need to be top priority.
