This approach will connect from The Shoulder, Vortex, Mines 1 or 2 Ski Runs to the top of 6.3 Ski Run.

Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry

Description

Head up the drainage toward the Vortex ski run, passing both Mines 1 and Mine 2. After passing Mine 2, make a 90-degree left turn heading into the trees. Stay on the line making some minor switchbacks when the terrain gets steeper. We ended up above tree line, and from here we skied down the 6.3 Ski Run.
