Description

Although this run is basically right next to Beaver Bowl 1, it is marked because it enters a different pocket of trees. The only difference between this run and Beaver Bowl 1, is that you will traverse slightly out skier's left and then drop into the bowl. If you traverse too far skier's left, you will end up in a different drainage or skiing directly into a "plateau." For a continuous line of vertical, follow the contour of the slope marked on the map. Once you reach the bottom, follow the exit route out. This line is another great tree skiing run in the backcountry of the ski area. Please understand these trees can slide. When conditions are ideal, both of these lines can ski very well into the month of May.
