This run takes you along the Mud/Rice bowl divide, then drops off the north side into Mud bowl by going through a beautiful aspen forest. The trees are perfectly spaced for some fun tree skiing.
Need to Know
A death occurred close to this area last season due to a terrain trap in the form of an abrupt transition from steep to flat. The victim was buried incredibly deeply, despite deploying an air-bag. Watch for such traps.
Approach as per Farmington Spine
. Once at the top of Mud Peak, you can drop into Mud bowl or Rice bowl. Alternatively, you can also just ski the divide between the two, which may be a more conservative line. Ski the divide until you see an inviting aspen forest on your left, then accept the invitation to drop in.
I shot some GoPro footage (attached to this beta) that shows the exact descent, and other parts of the general area. Try not to judge my poor skiing ability too harshly.
Note that dropping in from Mud Peak is complicated by a long cornice line. The cornices are smaller and more manageable in the Spring time.
