A moderately hard ski line above treeline heading into the trees and following Second Creek to Highway 40.

Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry

Need to Know

Be careful - this line should not be taken lightly and should only be skied when the snow is stable. If you are directionally challenged, you might steer clear of this ski run.

Description

Parking is available at Current Creek or Second Creek depending on your preference.

Use the Current Creek Approach, heading to the base of the Postage Stamp. Be extremely careful before dropping in on this line; it is a better spring ski when snow has stabilized. There are a few options for dropping in but be careful of the rocks. We headed skiers right, skiing into the Corner Pocket Trees before following the Second Creek Drainage. As you get closer to Hwy 40, you'll end up on the Second Creek Approach.
