Consistent wide-open intermediate skiing leads to Powderline.

Need to Know

The upper section of this tends to be wind scraped during the winter. This is often not possible due to a lack of snow.

Description

This is a wide-open, sustained intermediate run with amazing views of the pass. Watch out for rocks poking out (there is typically not great coverage here due to wind). Most of this run is above tree line, so you can ski virtually wherever you want.

Traversing far enough to skiers right will lead you to the chutes within Hell's Half Acre. Traversing far enough to skiers left will lead you to the Floral Park trails.

Stick to the middle to ski back down towards Powderline and Bonanza or to arrive back at the Berthoud Pass parking lot.

As always, nice easy hike up with a great view of the Pass. Limited coverage above the treeline (skree field mostly exposed, rendering it un-skiable)
