Need to Know

An easy skin up (30-60 min) a gradual slope takes you through some pines and up to the Bald Spot. You can drop in the trees to the right before you reach the summit or pick one of many lines once you are above the tree line.

Description

This ski line is a traverse across to the west edge of the bowl along the tree line. Great snow and good vertical. Any line you choose will end at the same drainage which leads back in bounds to the birds of prey area.

If you stay to your left at the bottom, there are some really fun trees before you eventually have to hit the drainage.

Surprisingly good top section. Will definitely come back in better weather and snow.
