Trail shared by Ryan Nevius

A fantastic, miles-long line with Hallett Peak and Flattop Mountain towering above.

Description

One of the highlights of skiing any of the steep lines in upper Tyndall Gorge is this moderate line at the bottom. At over a mile long (and up to nearly 2.5 miles, if you're able to ski all the way to Bear Lake Parking Area), Tyndall Gorge often holds deep snow late into the season.
