Description

This area has a number of lines as you work your way around the west to north-facing terrain. The skiing is pretty mellow, in the 20 degree range. You'll start on a more open face and transition into trees that generally get tighter as you go down in elevation. The skiing can be pretty good. You can follow your tracks back up and repeat as many times as you would like before heading back to Jackal Hut. I think the skiing is better here than the areas right near the hut. I consider it blue/black terrain based on the tighter trees.
