Description

The ski in starts shallow but keep going through the obvious gap between the trees till it gets steeper and you will be greeted by a stash of tight turns between excellent features. There are drops and pillows galore as well as some fun tree turns to navigate. At the end you come out into a shallow powder field just above the Granges drag lift
