Overview

A traverse from the bottom of the sugar bowls back to buttermilk resort.

Description

Instead of returning back on Sugar Bowls Approach you can traverse across to West Buttermilk. If the resort is closed you'll still need to skin a couple hundred feet up in order to ski out of the main resort. There will likely be a ski track across the traverse.
