This isn't much of a secret, but it can be really good, and the huge amount of terrain can stay good pretty long into a powder day.

Description

This isn't much of a secret, but it can be really fun, and the huge amount of terrain can stay good pretty long into a powder day. Plus, it's easy to lap over and over via the Skyline lift. From the top of the lift, cruise out to the ridge underneath the lift. As the ridge ends, hook back to the right, under the lift, to where the trees start. To the left will be the "Divide" run and to the right is "Heavy Metal". Pick any line in between the two. The terrain aprons out wide, so the dense tracks at the top tend to thin out. All the terrain in here is pretty similar, so just hunt out the best snow. All variations will end on the cat track that takes you back to the lift.
