Trail shared by J. Bella

A tight tree line with varying terrain.

J. Bella
Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry

Description

Starting atop a large cliff this line begins in a steep north facing bowl then follows a series of benches as it wraps around to the east and down to the Long Canyon trail. The top is an avalanche path despite the density of forest growth, the middle sections have a lot of downfall and although the trees are tight most are cleared of branches several above the ground creating narrow pathways. Jedi riding at it's finest. Some years this area holds the earliest rideable snow and fills in quickly, other years it's windswept and thin.
