Analysing terrain data
The Crags is an area of formally out of bounds skiing that is technical and steep.
You must access the area by hiking to the top of Casper Bowl and traversing beyond the bowl and past a short sidestepping section until you are around the corner.
The corner indicates indicates the start of Shots 7,8, and 9 and traversing further will bring you to the less steep Sheridan Bowl, Limber Pine Chutes, and Dayton Bowl.
It is also possible and now possibly easier to hike to The Crags from the top of the new Teton Chair (either way you choose, be aware of the 2pm closure). The Crags is known for its rocky features.
There are little pillows and boulders to play on, but also deadly cliffs and closeout sections, so get to know the area by following someone in the know, or by slowly learning the intricacies through a cautious approach. Sheridan Bowl is accessed by following the boot pack from the Teton Quad until the ridge flattens out.
You’ll be able to see down Sheridan Bowl and it’s easy to know you’re in the right spot as Sheridan Bowl is is the most prominent run in the area.
Plus if you liked any further, you would turn the corner and descend into Casper Bowl.
If coming from the Casper Bowl side, round the corner past the sidestep section and descend a hundred feet or so until a top the bowl.
Sheridan Bowl is not super steep and the major obstacles are on the sides of the run.
Stick to the gut for the easiest way down and run it out into Upper Wide Open for a mellow cruise out.
Sheridan Bowl is a five-star run in powder and crud!
