Mellow ski through trees and old burn section.

Gary Hellenga
Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry

Overview

Take in the great views to the south, then turn around and hit any line you like, dropping north to Sheep Creek in widely-spaced trees.

Description

From the East Ridge of Mineral Mountain, pick any line you like back down to Sheep Creek. First 100-200 feet will be through live trees, then you'll cruise on mellower-angled slopes down through a burned section of forest to reach the creek. Repeat as desired!
