Description

Juniper Hollow is off Solitude Chair. Take Freeway down until it makes a hard left and is heading back to the chair in a western direction. Traverse right from here a very short distance and then turn left and ski to the base of Solitude. The Silverado boundary line will be on your right. Watch for trees and rocks. It flattens out in places and towards the end so plan your line. This is a short western facing run through the trees and is a bit of a gully in the middle. You can find some short powder turns here.
