Westside Trees Map

A short line in the West Basin area, that offers some steep and widely spaced trees which then turns into an open bowl at the bottom.


These trees can be accessed by either hiking up Top of the World or taking the traverse over to Top of the World/West Boundary. Once you get to West Boundary, immediately turn into the trees on your left. Once in, drop in wherever and enjoy the snow.

Coverage can be a little bit variable in the early season (December to January) so be mindful of that when skiing here during that time of year.



Serious gradient of 30-38 degrees where a real risk of slipping exists.

Low Exposure (E1)

1 out of 4

Exposure is limited to that of the slope itself. Getting hurt is still likely if the slope is steep and/or the snow is hard.
