A short, corniced open area leads to gentle rolling glades.

Overview

Features: -none-

Description

The approach is up a jeep road at an easy steady grade. When you reach a fork in the trail you'll see old mine buildings. Take the right fork up a steeper skin track that winds to tree line on the hill to your right. Stay below the steeper corniced section at the top for gladed, rolling skiing back to your skin track. When conditions are right continue up the steeper section, above tree line, for access to a short open section leading to the glades mentioned earlier.

I like to stay at tree line and ski the glades. The slope is mostly under 25 degrees with some small rollers to keep it fun. This area tends to stay shaded and the snow is generally soft and cold.
