“This is the approach to ski the Flora Creek NW shoulder and Flora Creek drainage.”— Kevin Gillest
After that is completed, you'll need to skin across the Roberts Creek Approach to the Roberts Creek Ski Run. Drop in on the Roberts Creek NW shoulder in the Roberts Creek drainage (there are avalanche concerns on this Ski Run).
After arriving in the Roberts Creek Drainage, ski up the left side of the drainage, not quite to where the trees end and cut back left. Look for Pink Survey Tape, this will mark our entrance into the trees on the left side. Follow this short but strenuous skin to the drop-in point for Flora Shoulder/Creek.
On different years, it might be possible to go higher, but on 12/26/2018 this was the end of the skiable snow.
