Description

High Saddle starts just a few minutes up the Throne ridge hike.

Look for the small alpine first that dot the upper section.

Watch for the traverse track below.

This is a relatively easy run for those wanting to hike for a few fresh turns.

Non-experts should avoid the cedar bench a third of the way down, where it steepens and often requires jumping off a cliff.

Veer to the left through the opening in the trees for a consistent fall line to the bottom.
