Jack's Bowl Map

Used to be on the map, ask a local guide to take you through this route. Features a plethora of well spaced trees, with occasional tighter sections. Tons of rock outcrops; some of which are good to drop, others really aren't; it'll take a few runs through to really get a feel for the place. More open on skiers left of the natural gully (not something you want to get stuck in due to the bushes creating snow bubbles). Skiers right has more drops and a longer run.


Make sure to scope landings as not every boulder has a great run out off the back of it. As with any tree runs, you want to ride at least in buddies, with helmets and a plan.



Serious gradient of 30-38 degrees where a real risk of slipping exists.

Medium Exposure (E2)
