Overview

The bowl north-east of the Kenny Creek cabin having a south-west aspect provides a vast area of skiable terrain, and all at a fairly moderate angle. The only problem is that it's a solar aspect, so catching it in good condition isn't easy.

Description

You can begin this run in the evergreens (skier's right), or skip them altogether in the wide open shot (skier's left.) Either way, you end up in open fields fenced in by lesser species of vegetation poking through the snow. At no point, however, are you ever walled in completely, if you weave your way through the maze correctly. There are almost always little necks of connection between these open fields. The run ends when you reach Kenny Creek, at which point, you can skin up for another go, or head back to the cabin.

History & Background

I've heard that many years ago there was a functional cabin in this area, but now only its remnants remain. Someone burned it to the ground.

Your first view of Rocky Drainage (sometimes called Rocky Basin, but it's not really a basin.)  The line I favored from the peak followed the drainage to the right side of the picture.

Black Crows should pay me.  Here I'm ready to start skiing back down Session's Ridge.  Sure glad I didn't have to walk this section. You can ski it all the way as far as is shown in the photo, and then some, before you have to finally boot the rest of it.

Fun skiing on the way back.

Skip ahead to 6:29 in the video to see Kenny Bowl. The video starts out in Wiley Hollow. It ends with a run down the pipeline.  The whole video features a crappy skier, so just take it for whatever it's worth.
