Description

If you go straight down the drop in area of White Rabbit, you will come across a vary large Boulder where you can ski on top of and you will find yourself on the rock drop know as The Cookie. If you go straight off it is the largest drop to a flatter landing about a 10-14 feet drop. If you go off slightly to the right it will be less of a drop (6 - 8 feet) with a more vertical landing If you go off to the far right it will be a very mellow drop (5 - 8 feet) with a vertical landing. This a perfect spot to capture videos or photos for the memory books and social media!
