The Boulders Map

As you drop into the White Rabbit zone stay left and approximately half way down you will come across the area known as The Boulders. This is an area where there are multiple very large boulder rocks and more specifically there are three in a row that create a great spread out pillow line. This is best after fresh snow but can be skied as long as there is snow covering the surface of the large rocks.
