The standard approach to some open trees at Butler Gulch

Jeramiah Paylor
Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry

Description

Good access with easy flat skinning at the beginning, leading to one of the shorter lap lines in Butler Gulch. This approach goes to one of the areas near Jones pass that is lower angle with some nice open tree skiing.
