Description

From Mellisa Coray Peak, take the natural fall line in the north facing U-shaped bowl. There are a few cornices and minor cliffs on either side for the more adventurous. Fallow the area all the way to Emigrant Lake.

From here, skin/pole/bootpack over to the top of Temple of Doom and ski this back into the resort proper.

If you really can't face any more uphill you can bail out of the climb to Temple of Doom and drop off right into mellow trees and follow these down to the groomers.
