Analysing terrain data
Lover's Leap is a great name for this as it is a leap from the cornice to the trail below.
Sometimes this can be very big and even bigger when you bring speed into it.
It's important to look before you leap, as there are many rocks and mogul fields to deal with when you land.
The terrain itself is some of the steepest at Vail and if you make a mistake you may slide all the way down to the bottom...
This is pretty short, but each turn is exciting and this is one of the best trails Vail has to offer for the steep and hopefully the powder enthusiast.
Left is definitely easier than the earlier skier's right side.
Also remember to cut left at the end of this pitch or you will get to some really tight trees. Fun Fact: A Ute Indian Chief's daughter and her lover were forbidden to marry so they jumped off a cliff near the entrance of Red Cliff, CO.
Skiers and snowboarders taking this run will have to take a leap off of the cornice in a similar fashion.
