Overview

A fun moderate section of terrain that allows for good skiing off the top of the pass. Watch out for rocks in early season.

Description

Near the summit of Powder River Pass. The trail starts early through the timber, which leads to a clearing that will allow you to pick multiple lines. Skin up and ride down more or less the same location.
