The best gladed route from where Burnt Stew Trail starts heading back towards Harmony. Just ski anything from the lift line to the left with some fun nicely spaced glades. Beware of the creek in early and late season. The glades end where Jeff's Ode to Joy split into 7 routes - this makes a great option if you're heading to Symphony from Sun Bowl or Harvey's. Make sure Symphony Express is open before you head down though, it's a long cat track walk out!
