Description

The slopes extending either side of the Cubore button lift at the top of the Fornet bowl offer brilliant terrain with undulations, steep sections and a few little rocks to jump off. It is a great playground on a powder day but be sure to get here early as its easy access means that it can be tracked out completely by midday. It can look intimidating as you drop in but you will be rewarded with a brilliant descent that you can lap using the button lift again and again.
