A steep, tight line at the top of Second Creek Bowl.

Jacob Winey
Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry

Need to Know

This is a bit steeper than your average Berthoud line, falling or getting caught in a slide would likely result in collisions with rocks.

Description

A very cool chute dropping north into the Second Creek Bowl from the top of Postage Stamp. Frankenstein chokes about half way down and then curves to the skier's right around a rock spire. You may be able to ski to the skier's right of the spire depending on coverage. However, the regular descent is plenty of a thrill.
