Need to Know

Be on the lookout for moose in this area. We were here in early-December and saw seven (7!) moose.

Description

From the road (or the summit of Caribou Hill), head east. The line starts off quite low-angle (keep an eye out for rocks as this section tends to get wind scoured).

As the grade steepens, the snow will deepen. Enjoy some surfy turns on this lap-able run!

Great area for beginners! Easy, low angle laps.

Exposed rocks and vegetation in wind blown locations, but also pockets of deep snow. Must be mindful on your way down.

Crusty, windblown and very bony in some spots. You can stitch together a good run, but avoiding the sharks is tough. 2.5mi — 3h 00m
