Need to Know

As the snowline drops during the winter, the approach distance along the access road increases. This is best in early season after a couple of high deposits have dropped, but the access road has not been hit too hard.

Description

This zone is awesome for early season turns with a great view and many small zones to explore and track out. There is enough space along the ridge to spread out, but on popular days you might want to get there early to get the freshest of fresh. While the east face of the ridge is better (longer runs, slightly steeper, and less trees) the west also holds good runs.
