Analysing terrain data
Tin Pants is an easy green in the Sourdough Express (Chair 14) area, just below the Elk Lodge.
Practise your turns here on a flat and easy beginner trail near the top of the main mountain.
There can be some people in this area trying to get to the Northwoods area- so watch out for others.
The name refers to the canvas chaps worn by loggers and waterproofed with grease or pine pitch.
In cold weather, the pants often froze so stiff that they were known as "tin pants" and men were known to slide back down to camp on them.
