A great zone for high avalanche danger days.

Description

This is a great area to do mellow tours in when the avalanche danger is high. Nicely spaced trees, low angles, sheltered area, and multiple aspects give this area a lot of versatility. Also the road, which is closed in the winter, allows for an idiot proof indicator so you can safely get back to the paradise parking lot, even in a white out!
