Description

Another route within Smoked Salmon which loses a little vertical from a small traverse but often has snow left when Smoked Salmon is tracked out. Cut skiers right about 30-40 metres down Smoked Salmon, through the trees and under a cliff. This will open up to a little open meadow. Continue through a few more trees at the end and you will be dropped out onto Blue Line. Be careful not to cut right too quickly otherwise you'll end up on top of the aforementioned cliff!
