“Easy low-angle terrain for practicing your turns and avoiding avalanche danger.”— Chris Dickson
From the Pikes Peak Highway, you can see all of the old ski runs and choose to skin up whichever one looks best. In general, the lines on the looker's left side of the resort are steeper. Skin all the way to the top, rip your skins, and pick your way down through the trees back to where you started.
Fun to lap when avalanche danger is high or when you don't have a partner.
