Description

From the very top, this line requires careful navigation around boulders and rocks. It also requires a lot of snow to be considered "in."

The second half can be skied throughout the winter, depending on stability conditions, and can feature some nice soft snow. THIS IS AVALANCHE TERRAIN, and this thing often rips, so only ski it when conditions allow.

Due to its steep north aspect, it tends to resist getting crusty even when everything else in Glen Cove is hard as a rock.
