Description

From the trailhead, follow the Jones Pass West Fork Bowl Ascent. The Vasquez Saddle is on your right between Vasquez Peak and Peak 12,666. Veer off the skin track and boot pack or skin up to the ridge line of the saddle. Pick your line and enjoy nice low angle skiing back to the skin track.
