Description

Take El Dorado chairline, and cut skiers right to check out the multiple routes available around some awesome tooth like rocks. There are all sorts of obstacles along the way, ranging from small to large, so make sure to scope your landings. The longer, more traverse style route is to skiers right, with the other options being peel offs from this traverse. If you ever get lost, simply go downhill, and you will either come out under El Dorado, or Wagon Trail.

As with all tree runs, travel in a group, make a plan and for goodness sake, wear a hemlet!
