Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry

Need to Know

Be prepared to move slowly through trees and possible rocks until you traverse into the open treeless run.

Description

Start at the pullout and move right, until you get into the clearing. Ski the run until it's lost in the trees again and than trend left and you'll find your way to the big low angle clearing that leads back to the bathrooms.
