Description

Enchanted Forest is located off KT-22 Express, between the Saddle and the Bullet. It as a fun, fairly steep black diamond run. There are cliffs to skiers left and right, so make sure you are on the correct line. There are some large boulders and small cliffs on the run and in the area, plus there are rollovers and steeper pitches within the run. It faces north-east so it holds nice snow and gets good snow deposits on powder days. Ski down the Saddle and traverse left at the top of the ridge where the Saddle starts to get steep and goes to the right. Follow the traverse left over a cat road and past some cliffs until you see skiable lines downhill to your right. You connect with the Saddle again at the bottom.
