Description

Pretty straight forward really; take clipper to the cut out to skiers left under chairline. In early season, there can be a stump you can jib right at the start, followed by a little rock to pop off, and then some medium ones (one of which has a log balanced on it you can jump off). These features fill in as the snow falls, leaving the medium rocks as a sweet mini drop, followed by some fun bumps. Carry speed to get back onto Lower Bashful.
