This is the approach to ski Morning Glory specifically, but also could be used to get halfway up to Zero Creek Bowl.

Description

Moderate approach leaving Hwy 40 from the parking area just below Zero Creek. This parking area is also a drain point from the 40 gate at Mary Jane on some rare occasions when people go too far right. The overall approach leaves the Zero Creek Drainage to the left and follows the ridge until you gain the southeast slope known as "Morning Glory". Fairly simple approach, no issues or navigating problems.
