Description

The skier's left line of "Y Chute" is a fairly steep, quick shot that is super-lappable. Take care, as the entrance is a bit convex and the line has a potential to slide.

The end of the Hidden Knoll ascent with views east and south to many different lines. Drop in to the east-facing bowl for some wide-open fun.

Some rocks to look out for (especially skier's right at the bottom), but generally filled in.
