Description

A fun run at the former ski area boundary, this line is usually not too busy and is a nice option on powder days. From the top of Silverado or Solitude follow the ridge line alongside the Silverado chair line. Turn left before the Silverado rope line and ski the short steeper pitch that flattens out as it approaches Freeway. Take Freeway to the bottom of Solitude. There are some trees that can be skied on the left. Watch for rollers in the snow on the way down, especially on skier's left at the top. Keep your speed on the bottom, especially on powder days as it really flattens out where it merges with Freeway. The line is north facing so it holds nice snow.
