Need to Know
Snow conditions can be radically different between the different aspects this bowl covers.
Ski down the gut! This bowl gets a nice wind buff from the prevailing westerlies. Parts are fairly steep, and the whole thing is an open glade ending in a flat meadow, which is convenient for a celebratory beer. When you're ready to hike out, cross the gully you found on the ascent and maintain a gentle downward traverse back to the skin track. Given how the slope rolls a bit, reapplying skins is recommended for splitboarders but skiers may find this unnecessary.
Fun terrain and good snow awaits on an ideal line heading back towards the parking areas.
