Trees and wider fields Map

A treeline/free-field combination. You should be able to navigate through narrow tree sections if you want to ski this line - it's out of the resort and riding down the wrong direction might result in a walk or the need to hitch hike. It's a very rewarding run especially when the snow conditions are good. There are pillows, great views and you don't need to hike. The only problem is orientation: the best thing is to stay rider's left, and on subsequent runs you can trend slightly further right. If unsure take the next forest road you cross to your left. Because of the easterly aspect the morning sun might be quite strong later in the season and the snow melts fast.
