Even though this line is easy to see, its worth mentioning because it skis the best on really good storm days. Make sure you get it early in the day too, because it does get a lot of sun. Start where there is a break in T-bar and go skier's left into the trees. You will then get to a small open bowl that usually has a nice drop far skier's left near the actual t-bar itself. If you take this route it will flatten out a lot but the drop is usually very fun and very soft. If you take the original line that is mapped out, you will get a lot of vertical. Although frowned upon from patrol, you can get off to the T-bar early, to access this line and lap it on storm days. It's the best bang for your buck for High Alpine bowl skiing in Breckenridge.
