“A quintessential Crested Butte northeast-facing powder glade.”— Ericka Bremer
After about 300 feet, cut left into a more open glade where there are some fast turns. Make sure to take a look at Gothic Mountain and the Maroon Bells Wilderness before you cream the run, though! Watch for a concave rollover at about 10,500 feet, where you should stick slightly to the right.
From there, it's a straight shot until a gully begins to form on the right. Find a mellow route over the gully and get ready for some more turns before hitting Gothic Road. The snow can be a little wind-crusted here, but generally makes for good carving. There's a reason this isn't a heavily trafficked run, and that's because you have a 30 minute skin back to the car. It's a mellow two-track, but get ready for a bit of a sweat!
