Description

The first part of this traverse can get a bit rough from all the skier traffic it sees, but once you're around the first corner this is an easy gravity traverse that gives you access to Willie's Wide Staircase and the 7th Tree Chute Staircase. If hiking isn't your preference, the entire area below the traverse is a skier or rider's playground, full of gullies, lips and rollers that are fun in almost all conditions.
