Overview

Needs Overview
This area is sometimes closed by Squaw Valley

Description

When you get off the lift, veer left and then start on the trail called High Voltage. Immediately head left after the steepest section towards an unmarked area under the lift. Stay under the lift until you reach the bottom. This is one of the best unmarked trails at the entire resort.
