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!
