Overview

This descent is a nice, east-facing shot.

Need to Know

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

Description

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, it appeared that you could continue quite a ways further and get a really long run in.

Beautiful pow day in mid January.

There are some seriously fun little hits if you seek them out, and can keep up some speed.

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