“Easily accessible sidecountry skiing off of the Red Mountain Lodge.”
— Dan Skifert
Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry
Need to Know
There are nice views from the top due to lack of trees. In turn, however, this can make it very windy.
Accessing these turns is as simple as an easy skin up from the backcountry access gate off of the Headwaters Run. Trees burned during the 2008 Cascade Fire provide some open slopes to ski back down into the headwaters runs and return in-bounds.
History & Background
Burned in 2008 Cascade wildfire. You can follow one of the firelines to the top of the burnt knob.
