Need to Know

If you don't hook left at the appropriate time you'll get cliffed out. Essentially, hug the steep terrain to your left until you can see a clear exit into the forest down and to the right and you can't go wrong.

Description

This line holds great snow when wind has scoured the rest of the park. Head up the trail to Lake Haiyaha until you reach the gully that drops away to the east.

Either head up glacier knob to your right to get a few dozen more meters of vertical, or just go from here. Work your way down the gully, trending left. When you get to the first glade-bench area, hook left HARD. If you don't, you'll get cliffed out.

Skirt along the base of some cliffs (watch for weak points, aka, stay away from the cliffs) until you can continue down a boulder field (can be tricky with low snowpack) and then power through the trees until you hit the return ski trail.

A bit tricky to find but a great open gullly with a few trees. Nice snow hook left as you get down to avoid nasty cliffs
