Overview

If you're into tight trees, less-than-optimal snow, huge cliffs around every turn, and the chance of skiing right into a creek, this run is for you. Beats skiing the skintrack though.

Need to Know

Don't keep strictly to the creek unless you like mandatory air.

Description

Just past the wooden bridge on the way down the Forest Lakes Trail, turn off down the creek. Deal with a few small rock drops, choosing between the difficulty of tight trees or the risk of wet ski boots. When the creek obviously starts thinning out, head into the trees to either the right or the left. Overall, this line is still a good time.
