Upper White Lightning Map

This is one of the first lines encountered when hiking into the Upper Bowl, and it's marked with a trail sign. A wide shot of moderate grade, with glades on either side, it feels a lot like the other black diamond tree runs on the mountain. But the extra work to get there will likely earn you better snow.
