A nice, defined, north-facing line which zigzags through the trees of Lower Hidden Valley.

Description

This is a fun line that is well shielded from the elements. It holds snow well and is a worthwhile outing when the upper bowls are windblown and crusty.

It's easy to get off-route during the ascent, as the old "Spruce" line is the widest and most well-defined path. Keep an eye out and thread through the trees, instead of heading right toward Lower T-Bar. The upper half of the run is narrow in places, so be mindful of uphill traffic on your descent.
