Need to Know

Be sure to stay north of the creek. It would be a bad day if you fell in...

Description

This descent is a nice, east-facing shot. Access the ridge from the Forest Lakes Trail, which will bring you to within striking distance of the line. Your descent pops in and out of dispersed trees for its entirety, and never gives the skier much respite.

When we skied this line, we started about halfway up. While we were there, et appeared that you could continue quite a ways further and get a really long run in.

We put in a little lower, but it looked like you could continue up a ways and still get great turns.
