A fun, short hill with north-facing powder that is easy to lap.

Jared Brin
Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry

Description

This is a fun, short hill that generally holds great powder since it is north facing. Stay to the right in the trees (skin track area) for some steeper tree skiing, or left in the open area with some optional small cliffs. Do a few more laps, then ski down the benches below to the gulley (some steep, sloughy terrain is farther skiers right approaching the gulley).

If conditions are stable, it is also possible to cut right and ski the open face directly above the road before reaching the gulley.
