Great tree skiing!

Description

From the top of the second hump, choose a line through the trees, tighter on the left. Steeper at the top, then grade decreases towards the bottom, but still good for turns lower down. Fair amount of downfall makes for fun features when the powder is deep. Often a skin track is set and switchbacks back up on the south side of the gully on skiers right.
