Exhilaration Map

This run is Triple Black Diamond! Once you reach the top of the short bootpack, hike up to the peak on skiers right of where you stand. Make your way along the edge of the ridge/drop zone until you can spot your line, usually 10-15 feet from the top of the knoll. If you're first up there and don't know where to enter do not second guess it. Usually there will be a few tracks up there almost as soon as Harmony Express opens on a powder day. The entrance into Exhilaration can be a sketchy side step, a 2-6 feet cornice drop or a straight-line (be comfortable with all before tackling this mega line). Once you're in the chute you will have to make lots of steep, short, jump turns most likely around rocks until the chute opens up below you. This is a NO FALL ZONE although people have been known to straight-line the whole thing. Ski it fast, be safe, get some face shots and enjoy one of the steepest and scariest lines in resort! As per all of the lines off this ridge of the mountain (Glacier Wall), ski them top to bottom and finish up in Glacier Bowl. Don't wait for your mates!




Steep skiing at 38-45 degrees. This requires very good technique and the risk of falling has serious consequences.
