Description

There are a few interesting lines in this area, all of them for expert riders, from narrow lines between rocks to really steep sections. They are not very long but long enough to need to be aware of snow conditions. They offer a good opportunity to get to steep terrain from a chairlift. These lines are visible from the slopes if you want to scope them out before you drop in.

Severe

Steep skiing at 38-45 degrees. This requires very good technique and the risk of falling has serious consequences.
