Need to Know

There is a bit of a longer approach to this route than others in the Paradise area, but well worth the walk.

Description

Enjoy beautiful turns from the bottom of the turtle through open slopes of corn. This side of the mountain gets really corny though, as it gets light pretty early and enjoys late sunset light often. It can be a bit slushy if it's too warm. Also, rocks may poke through over here earlier in the summer than Paradise, so plan accordingly.
