“A wide open bowl littered with rock drops and remnants of the White Mountain Fire.”
— Matt Slagle
Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry
A great open shot for nearly 1000', allowing the skier/rider to make it as challenging or easy as they want. The main bowl is not nearly as technical as the eastern arm can be. The bottom does get a little "cliffed out" so it is important to choose your line wisely. Given the large scree fields, sun exposure, and lacking vegetation, this does have higher potential for a slide.
To get back to the highway, the easiest route will be to take the well established skin track that follows the Kettle Crest Trail. Once on the north/northeast aspect of Sherman Peak, one can pick their way downhill towards the highway.
