Carruthers East Spur Map

A gentle gradient and completely different to the skiing in all other directions, the eastern slopes are long and flat, which are best left for the run home to Charlotte's Pass. However the runs to the south east are gentle and drop around 300 metres over a couple of kilometres towards Club Lake Creek. This area holds the snow well and will corn up nicely in spring, providing a nice gentle return home.
