Trail shared by Gunks Jesse

A nice glade on a short pitch that is good for powder laps.

Gunks Jesse
Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry

Need to Know

There is a stream that winds through the lower regions of the final descent. The upper regions are littered with rocks, stumps, and logs.

Description

Multiple lines exist in this area making it a nice option for a good powder day. The lines are short, but the ascent is short as well. Ski from the top of the ascent back to the small foot path at the bottom of the upper pitch. Traverse the foot path back to the ascent to repeat. If you are motivated, you can get to the foot path, get two or three runs in, and be back to the car in under an hour.

There are a couple of stream crossings.  They may be covered in snow in winter...
