Fence Line Map

Once standing at the fence line which will say 'Cliffs' etc. take your pick of the chutes and steep faces. The farther skier's left (higher) you drop into Fence Line, usually the more gnarly entrance and run out. There are several fun, 3-5 feet air entrances high skiers left with small exposure below. On a massive powder day you could air over this exposure if conditions are right and your skills are good. Exit onto the run out of Exhilaration. The run out is into Glacier Bowl so be sure to watch out for traverse tracks, but mainly just be sure to charge from top to bottom! Don't wait for your mates, just enjoy it!
