Description

This is how you get to the top of Gulf of Slides. There is a trail that has been cut in order to reach the main bowl. It is possible to skin all the way to the top of the bowl, although conditions need to be perfect. You'll most likely need to follow the boot pack which is on lookers right of the bowl. There is rescue equipment and a small emergency shelter near the base of the bowl.
