Description

This is a very easy, short decent. It's a good beginner run or warm-up descent before skiing other glades in the area.

Looks like this ski-line could use a little more info. If you know it, adopt the line and add to the description.

Top of Klondike facing north, towards the Arapahoe Peaks. Head this way, ride the saddle down keeping left if you want to ascend the opposite ridge on Bald Mtn, veering right to go back into the drainage (skin track back)
