Heartthrob Map

Once you've entered through the gate into Lakeside Bowl you can take follow the high traverse line into the bowl. This can be quite exposed depending on snow conditions. From this traverse you can access several routes including Traverse Pillow, Lakeside Centre, Heartthrob and I.D. Low.

Description

Heartthrob can be accessed by following the traverse over the first cliff and slightly beyond the center of the bowl. The further you traverse the more likely you are to find some fresh turns. The line itself passes through a rocky outcrop, which can offer some fun and small things to jump off if that's what you're looking for!
