Overview

Not as long or as pretty as Mama Bear... but Papa Bear will show you a good time!

Description

Follow the southeast ridge being careful to enter the northern drainage. Don't get distracted by the many lines that lead you back to Mama Bear. Staying on the ridge may seem errant at first but will deliver you to a large clearing that will be sure to thrill!

Punch through the trees (skiers left) at the bottom of the clearing and enter an extensive open glade. Enjoy the rolling terrain until the trees force you back to your skin track.
