A cruiser ski line right out the door of the Wendy Thompson Hut.

Ben Stone
Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry

Description

This is a beautiful open slope that just yearns to be ripped up by those visiting the Wendy Thompson Hut. From the col between Pk 2300 and the sub-peak that almost looks like a face (called "tenzing"). From the top, drop in, enjoying the run until near the bottom where it might be a good idea to start angling skier's left to avoid a longer skin than necessary. If you're out for another run, there are some pillows to the skier's right that can be linked up with at the bottom.
