A popular place for many, often with an igloo/tunnel built at the top of the run after hiking up the boot pack from the top of Wawa chair.


Variety of terrain, namely cliff drops, great powder on reserve due to barrier to access. Excellent place to go for various skill levels. Cliff drops range from 6' to 20' along the cliff band, but many can navigate around as they are not manditory. Most cliff landings are safe, steep enough, and do not require tremendous speed to clear.



Serious gradient of 30-38 degrees where a real risk of slipping exists.

Low Exposure (E1)
