Need to Know

This is a clean line with no hidden obstacles - just don't ski down into the creek!

Description

This run is the one that you take your friends on who are unsure of BC skiing. It is so clean with 12'' of powder, you can bomb the hill and make no turns without any trouble. First tracks here are a real treat.

The top is an obvious flat clearing with an old cat trail at the back and what looks like some gnarly drops as well. Enjoy the ride.

History & Background

This is one of the runs made for the abandoned ski resort that ran during the 1950 now lovingly known as Old Powderhorn. Another name this area is known by is Lands End.
