This is one of the first suitable lines up the ridge, and perfect for those that just don't want to wait to rip skins.

Description

A fun ride that can be easily lapped and holds good snow all spring. It's the first proper ski line as you are making your way up to the top of the ridge and is for the Impatient rider in the group that wants to transition and start making some turns. This can also be a suitable way back down from the summit if you aren't feeling like going directly into the bowls. No cornice risk on this one, but it is steep enough to produce avalanches if the snow hasn't turned over into corn or if it warms rapidly.
