Trail shared by Gunks Jesse

An awesome glade on a nice pitch.

Description

This is a wide expanse of glades facing south and southwest. From the clearing on the approach, these are to the north, right, and a few minutes further up the road towards the West Fork Bowl.

The pitch overall is relatively low angle. The glades range from dense to wide open. There are some super nice lines through here. Although the skin track is shown on the old jeep road, you can actually skin up straight through the glades.

Many lines exist through the glades below Vasquez Peak.  Ski it with a partner so you don't get lost.
