Need to Know

If you are going to the top of the Postage Stamp, lots of problems have occurred in this area. If you are skiing any of these lines from the top of this approach, be careful!

Description

Starting on the main Current Creek trail heading toward Peter Rabbit. Shortly after leaving the parking lot we cut up and right, always keeping the Postage Stamp in sight. We followed the path of least resistance. Sometimes, this line is already broke, but more often it is not. This is a basic shortcut to the 110's and the Perfect Trees.
