Trail shared by Jeramiah Paylor

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.

stopped after the switch backs above a glade, not bad coming down on the splitboard just a rolling section in the second half as you come down
