Mellow lift-accessed canyon, prime for building jumps.

Need to Know

You can either buy a lift ticket or you can skin up from Govy. Make sure to traverse left or you run the risk of getting lost.

Description

This trail starts and ends at lifts, but the majority of it is outside of ski area boundaries. Traverse to skiers right just below the Palmer midstation. You'll get to the start of the canyon. Follow the canyon down and turn left once the trees start to get thicker. You can then get on one of Timberline's lifts and do it again (with a lift ticket of course).
