Formally known as Southern Star, the management at Copper changed the name to honor Jim Spenst who was a long time manager at Copper.

The trail itself requires a ten minute hike from the top of the Sierra lift or you can cut the hiking time down by going around Copper Bowl and getting here from the Mountain Chief chair.

This is the far side of Union Bowl with some aspects facing east.

This is fairly steep and with usually good snow that has blown over from Union bowl.

The advanced skier or rider will love making these steep powder turns.

Almost always one of the last to get skied, the snow here stays nice longer as most people don’t like to hike and if they do they go right down the middle of Union Bowl.
