Shooter and Upper Shooter Map

Shooter sits skier's right of Super pipe but it's a very different run. Although the gradient is much the same, the depth of the gully is a lot shallower which makes it very playful and it's loaded with natural side hits of varying difficulty. The snow can be variable so you need to be confident skiing in all snow conditions.

Description

Combine this run with Crags at the very top and you have an amazing run back down to the saddle chair lift. This is more popular with the jibbers out there.
