Description

Whether you drive or hitch up The Pass, your reward is a skintrack that is primarily a traverse with very gradual climbs. From this track, you can access Powder Reserves, Shiver's Ridge, Titty Mouse Ridge, Olympic Bowl, KB Ridge, Avalanche Bowl, and The Claw with the option to drop west toward Thanksgiving Bowl, Christmas Tree Bowl, and Edelweiss, not to mention the terrain off Mt. Elly like Triple Direct, Dimensions, and Yoyo Wall. Needless to say, you can find just about anything here depending on conditions and abilities.
