Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry
This is an easy southeast-facing ski line that holds great powder. This is also one of the closest ski lines to Winter Park on Berthoud Pass. Which usually means that this only has Grand County locals, not a normal place for Front Range skiers. Lots of small rocks, and down trees to jump. If there has been a dry spell and lots of sun, this line will likely not have good snow.
Need to Know
Not much avalanche danger or overall issues to worry about, but you should still be prepared with all the appropriate gear.
There are numerous ways to start skiing this line, further left is shorter and steeper. Up and further right can be lower angle and also longer. The GPX file attached starts from the highest point and stays right, but left is generally great skiing. This line can be easily lapped, as you see it crosses the skin track one-third of the way up.
Last lap, be sure to ski the pillow line left of the up trail more toward the Zero Creek
drainage and parking area.
