If you are after a few powder turns the 'day after' the storm, follow the bootpack beyond the patrol shack above Chair 4. Follow the bootpack to the top ridge and then descend back down into the bowl above the backside runs. Aggressive skiers will only obtain 3-4 big fast turns. CAUTION - watch out for the cat track and/or traverse marks as you descend back into the main runs.



Slopes become slightly steeper at around 25-30 degrees.

Low Exposure (E1)

Exposure is limited to that of the slope itself. Getting hurt is still likely if the slope is steep and/or the snow is hard.
