Analysing terrain data
Done with lunch from Spruce Saddle? Well warm the legs up on the lower Bird’s of Prey Runs starting with Redtail.
This intermediate slope gets a lot of traffic for riders looking to get to Grouse Mtn or Larkspur Bowl.
Which means, the center line is usually scratched off.
However, you can find some snow on either shoulder.
Look for snow pockets around tree islands.
You can also cross over into Goshawk if the crowds get too much and want to ski some bumps.
With fresh snow, look right halfway down towards the Aspens and explore the Tail Feathers, a rolling intermediate glade that has you ripping through evenly spaced trees and gully banks.
The bottom encourages tired riders to open up and coast to Talon’s Lodge (be wary of reckless skiers).
