Description

This oft-overlooked bump near the Richardson Highway is a treasure trove of short but fun lines. Follow the obvious ridgeline from the west to gain the ridge.

Drop in either side whenever you like. The south side is often tracked out by snowmachine users, but the north side can hold nice powder stashes in between storms. Be mindful of terrain traps in unstable snow conditions.
