Description

Cloud Nine is basically the wide area in the middle of the saddle. There are endless options in here for ripping around. The top section is a little steep but is very wide. It then flattens out before dropping down again and this part has many cliffs to jump off and a lot of features for playing around. The whole area does get choppy very easily and it doesn't get filled in with snow like the gullies do, but it's still a lot of fun and there is an endless amount of things to do here on a powder day
